Standalone Benchmark Tool

1 post in this topic


A lot of games have been doing this for a while, my first experience was of course Half-Life 2's Source Engine benchmark. Many games have been packaging in a Benchmark engine to push the limits and showcase what the game engine can really do. I think this would be fantastic for BDO!! This has a number of benefits to the game and the users. The engine behind this game is absolutely killer! and the graphics or an orgy of the eyes. I think the game would get TONS of extra exposure by techtubers and system builders who use gaming benchmarks to proof there build. Tubers like BitWit and Jayz2cents would show this game off with every build/upgrade. Thats just two channels with woah too many subscribers. The other benefit would be to players. It would be nice if we could benchmark a new part or new build and get some customized results on how better to optimize our systems for buttery gameplay. It would also be nice to compare and get some charts that would help make the upgrade decisions easier. I am on a Radeon HD7870 with near max settings running a solid 30-36 fps. I would love to know, at a glance, how high I need to upgrade to hit that magical 60fps. I don't care about above that, my screen only hits 67hz so it would be useless to go beyond. My point is made however.

Sum it up:

  • Huge Gaming and performance exposure to help sell this amazing game
  • Showcase the engine and what limits this game can really push
  • Customized optimizations and recommendations to get more people playing AND with better experience
  • Charts, graphs and stats OH MY! Helps with purchase decisions and industry growth
  • Pure bragging rights for the ridiculous rigs at the top of the list ;p

I would love to see it packaged, but that I don't mind because I of coarse own the game. A stand alone download would make more sense as far as getting into as many hands as possible. A 40+ GB download is hard to justify for a benchmark. 

I would really love to see this happen, plox!!
