He is really very bad at playing games that he cannot click and cast and just play rather lazily. He is a click the action bar type and does not know how to use the keyboard to use the skills. Forget my 21 button mouse he will have an aneurysm if he had to learn to use that.
After getting him to remove the huge amount rubbish he had on this computer. Mainly porn, men
I got him a steam account and made a F2P account for DDO. He has an old card GeForce GTX 660 which damn DDO the temperatures are so damn high was in the 79~80's C. Even I have this issue where the GPU temperature is higher than newer games with DirectX 11 and all the stuff turned on because I have a GeForce GTX 1070. It is around 73 C even on my computer but his hit 90C at one point. I cleaned out his computer this morning with compressed air and it went down a few degrees but still going to 79 -80 is high. Plus the weather is getting hotter so it will get worse. I also dropped his to DirectX 9 from 11. I cannot drop all the graphics to too low or he will whine he will not play an ugly game.
Getting a new computer when the Coronavirus thing settles is the next thing we must do.
Then I created a throwaway character to let him try it and may have made a mistake of trying a pally because he just was always turned away or too far and was not connecting with the enemies. He began to fight the interface and the mouse and I was seeing a big fat 'F' staring at me that I could get him to play.
The last game he enjoyed playing was SWTOR where he can click and cast the skills with no problems and the target does not keep disappearing. He's gonna lose his temper and ditch the game soon and we have not even come to all the complexity in the systems of this game. The feats, the requirements and the way armour and weapons work. I really think that this was a bad idea to try and get him to play this game. May have short circuited his desire to play any game now.
