First Cruise




Hi all, yesterday was my first ever exposure to Beta testing an OMPG. It was generally good.

Been gaming (off and on) since we had to build our own computers from parts and write our own code (1978 or so)

1st game was my own version of "Lunar Lander" writen in IBM Assembler, running on an IBM 370 VM.

Also in ancient times contributed code to "SCRAPS" ("Space Cadets Rapine and Plunder Simulator")

These are my bbservations of playability of Naval Action using

my current rig: 16 GB RAM

Intel® Core i7-3960X CPU @ 3.30GHz, GenuineIntel, Intel64 Family 6 Model 45 Stepping 7

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate, OS version: 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 7601

2x Samsung SSD 850 PRO 1TB SSD's,


all 4 disks running in 2 mirrored RAID 0 arrays on an Intel® C600 series chipset SATA RAID Controller

1x ASUS GeForce® GTX 970 DC Mini small form factor gaming graphics card

3x BenQ XL2420Z 24in Gaming 3D LED LCD w/ HAS Monitors

Everything running "Plain Jane" as bought, nothing overclocked or anything like that.

Other games played recently : Eve Online, WOT, WOW, - not a big fan of FPS's - I think that interest tends to diminish after real military service.

Played for about 5 hours yesterday, just learning the ropes and trying to figure how high I can set the wuality without crashes.

I usually run things to the max, max FPS, max res, max detail, max shader and so on, but found I had to back down to about a medium setting at 1280 x 1024 to avoid periodic crashes

I am running the game on my middle monitor and three times it went to black screen although the game continued to run and I could hear myself being sunk.

Once it recovered to white screen but with same playability as black screen but I did see a flash of an error message related to "error Windows Kernel" before it dissappeared.

I still have not discovered if there is an "Official" bug reporting method or if we just use the Steam interface for that.

Anyway, back to gaming and testing trying higher resolutions today.

Hi Bernhart,


Pretty much been gaming bout as long as you have. We've come a long way since the early days (my first computer -> TRS-80 Model 1 (32KB RAM with tape cassette for storage).


Good to see another 'seasoned' beta tester.


See you on the high seas!
