    Moors starting Creep guide I threw together for a friend

    I had a friend patching the game yesterday to try out creepside so I ended up spending 30 min or so last night throwing together a to-do list for him once he got in-game. I figured I'd share it as I didn't see any similar guides when briefly searching last night for him.

    He has a standard laptop so all recommendations as far as performance and graphics were to keep him playable with RvR fights.
    I'm no computer expert, I just wrote down what works best for my dinosaur of a laptop I use when out of town.

    Hope it helps and feel free to comment with any addendums you want to add. The guide was meant to be used while looking at the options screen. If not you will most likely be lost.
