Eagle Mountain – Performance Tuning

Journey to Eagle Mountain – The Seeker is an immersive experience that requires considerable processing power to function properly on your PC/Windows or Mac/OS X computer. The program has been engineered to run across a wide array of system configurations and this article will help you get the most out of the game while playing it on your system.

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

  • Windows – Windows Vista/Win7/Win8/Win 10
  • Mac – OS X 10.7 or greater
  • Hardware Needed: INTEL Core Duo2 (or equivalent) or greater
  • 4GB Main Memory, Graphics processor with 256 MB VRAM or SDRAM, 920 MB Free Disk Space, USB 2.0 Port (no USB Hub)
  • IomPE or IomPro sensors

If your system does not meet these minimum requirements you may experience issues in playing Eagle Mountain. The three most important requirements are:

  • Processor Type – INTEL Core Duo2 (or equivalent) or greater
  • Main Memory – 4GB or greater
  • Graphics processor with 256 MB VRAM or SDRAM

PERFORMANCE TUNING RECOMMENDATIONS

If you are experiencing issues when trying to play Eagle Mountain such as video stuttering, slow reactions to mouse movements, video or audio delays there are a number of settings in Eagle Mountain that can help you increase the game’s performance on your system. We suggest trying each of the following adjustments one at time as you optimize Eagle Mountain to your system’s capabilities.

When you first open/run Eagle Mountain you are presented with the System Configuration menu. This menu allows you to adjust three elements that will have the most effect on system performance. They are:

  • Graphics Quality
  • Screen Resolution
  • Windowed/Full-Screen

Step 1 – Adjust Graphics Quality

In the right side of the System Configuration Menu you will see a box labeled “Graphics Quality”. This setting makes overall adjustments to the level of quality of the graphics being rendered during gameplay. The 6 settings available are:

  1. Fastest
  2. Fast
  3. Simple
  4. Good
  5. Beautiful
  6. Fantastic

“Fastest” requires the LEAST amount of processing power in order to play the game. The game’s graphics and images are rendered at the lowest level of quality and as such reduce the amount of CPU and Video processing requirements. Even at this low level Eagle Mountain preserves its beauty, look and feel.

“Fantastic” requires the HIGHEST amount of processing power in order to play the game. The game’s graphics and images are rendered at the highest level of quality and as such increase the amount of CPU and Video processing requirements.

The four settings in between “Fastest” and “Fantastic” allow you to make incremental changes in graphics quality and performance as each is relative step up/down.

SUGGESTION: Start off using the “Fastest” setting and try incrementing up each time you play Eagle Mountain to find optimal setting for your system.

Step 2 – Adjust Screen Resolution

The “Screen Resolution” setting is located on the left side of the System Configuration menu. The values that populate the list of choices will depend upon your system’s configuration. As you move “up” in screen resolution (higher numbers in width and height) you increase the quality of the imagery as well as increasing the system performance requirements of Eagle Mountain.

SUGGESTION: Start off using the lowest resolution setting (640×480) and try incrementing up each time you play Eagle Mountain to find optimal setting for your system.

Step 3 – Adjust Windowed/Full-Screen Mode

Beneath the “Screen Resolution” setting you will see a checkbox labeled “Windowed”. When this box is UNCHECKED the game will run in full-screen mode on your computer. Full-screen mode requires the most precessing power from your computer’s main memory as well as graphics memory/card.

SUGGESTION: Try using the “Windowed” to help increase gameplay performance.

Step 4 – In-Game Settings (Seeker Menu Screen)

During gameplay you can access the in-game setting via the Seeker Menu Screen. To access this menu, press the ESC key at any time. Listed below are settings that will effect the system performance and processing requirements.

SUGGESTION: Move the sliders to the left for the Seeker Menu Screen settings listed below to increase system performance. Experiment with these setting to find optimal balance between your gameplay requirements and your system performance.

Detail

This setting effects the level of detail (resolution) for all items such as animals, barrels, urns and crates. Moving the slider to the left decreases the level of detail and to the right increases it.

Terrain

This setting effects the level of detail (resolution) in the terrain of Eagle Mountain. Moving the slider to the left decreases the level of detail and to the right increases it.

Trees

This setting effects the number of trees visible on Eagle Mountain. Moving the slider to the left decreases the number of trees on Eagle Mountain and to the right increases them.

Speed

This setting effects your flying speed when you depress the LEFT mouse button. Your flying speed also effects game performance as increased speed = increased processing requirements for you computer. Moving the slider to the left decreases your flying speed and to the right increases it.

Acceleration

This setting effects how fast you accelerate when flying when you depress the LEFT mouse button. Reducing your acceleration speed will help you better control your flight and fine movements when interacting with wildlife, historical items or chests. Your level of acceleration also effects game performance as increased acceleration = increased processing requirements for you computer. Moving the slider to the left decreases the rate of acceleration and to the right increases it.
