Code.Blog Code Talk for the Game Developer

Hooray!  I got my 2 gb RAM in the mail last night and quickly installed them.  RAM is interested in that there isn't an immediate difference in the way my computer performs.  Does it boot up quicker?  Not noticably.  But, I was running UnrealEd last night with iTunes, something I did a few days before and it literally almost froze my whole system.  Now I can easily run both with the only noticeable problem being build time in Unreal is longer when iTunes is going (probably cause my CPU is only a 3.0ghz single-core I think).  I tried cooking my map last night for an early version of it (I got the pickups in) but it wasn't creating my map's ini file so I have to look into why thats happening.

I started playing Oblivion last night again and theres a setting where you can turn on shadows for the trees and makes it look so much better, but makes it run way slower so sadly I can't run that, I think my graphics card is the problem although it is 128 GeForce 7600 i think (256 or even 512 would be much nicer).  Problem, I need an AGP card, ugh why was I so stupid and didn't by a PCI-Ex board!?

Got to love throwing RAM at a system. We're all running 4 gb in our laptops here at the office.

Kudos on the maps btw, saw them in an earlier post and they look good!
