Unfortunately, the friend search doesn't seem to work. Are we doing anything wrong? When I go to the friend list in the left bottom corner and press Add nothing happens whenever I press enter/click on the magnifying glass.

Try this:

- Go to your Survarium folder
- then in binaries\win32 folder
- Right click on Survarium.exe - Choose Sent to - Desktop
- Go to your desktop and find a shortcut "Survarium.exe"
- Right click on it - choose properties - shortcut tab - in target line write that: survarium.exe: -max_video_memory=256 (there should be space between survarium.exe and -max_video_memory=256)
This is how it should look like:
- Click Ok

You can try 400, 512

work for me XD

a funny possible bug observed today i searched the forums but nobody put in it
at first i thought that it was just luck but after it happened few more times it caught my attention
so when two players were fighting at short distance they kill each other .
it happened once the 2 then 3 then .... i counted 10 times !
i tried to make a video with a program but my game crashed
now i wonder if it was just a coincidence or a bug.
i tried to talk to other players on the server but they were all russians (or something similar ) and we didn't understand each others .

Couple of hours of playing and it crashed once while it was receiving stats after a match, submitted the error so hopefully that helps.

Windows XP is end of life, and is limited to DirectX 10.1, this game uses DirectX 11 and soon enough DX12. If you are going to use an outdated OS you can't expect to run modern games, and it's not just Survarium you will have this issue with, any modern game that requires DX11 as a minimum you will be unable to play unless you upgrade.

Windows 8 is a failure of course but Windows 7 is far superior to Win XP in every way, there's no reason whatsoever to not update.

So how likely is it, that the game performance will increase significantly towards release?
Atm I played the game at 800x600 resolution with everything on minimum and I'm still sub-30FPS most of the time. It also jumps up and down, which results in stuttering.

I can play games like crysis 1, Warface or Blacklight with 60 FPS. Also red orchestra 2.

I understand that they are older than survarium, but if I can run CryEngine Games on 60 FPS it should be enough imo.
I meet the requirements btw..
Vostok should set them a bit higher for the beta. I dont want to be the guy who thinks he can run the game and buys a founder package and then has a 20ish framerate.

I really like the game even though it was actually impossible for me to play it.
Not the right time for me, to get a new PC atm.

I figured out what the problem was. The password I was using to log into the site must have been far longer than what the client could handle. After changing the password to something...much...shorter...I was able to log in without the client crashing.
Spank n Uranus, D-vices, and anyone else having problems similar to what we experienced...take a look at your password length and consider changing it. You might have some success with that.

Spotting enemies doesn't seem to work properly. I aim at the enemy, press Q and it rarely works. Also, there is a bug where the enemy instantly regenerates all of it's health on the spot when you kill them, so you have to actually kill them 2 times to down them. It also happened to me, I got killed by a shotgun, then I was suddenly alive at the same spot I got killed and of course, got killed again. It clearly showed at the side of the screen that I got killed 2 times in a row.

One more thing, the game crashed like crazy for me until I put everything on minimum. It ran pretty much OK, except a few crashes.
