System Requirements

Post by masterkatten » 24 Feb 2005, 21:46

Yo^^ im just wondering what the system requirements are. I have a laptop (wich isnt very good...) and i was wondering if it was possible to run the game without any 3d support? (it does have directdraw though.)

Thanks :D
Edit:
Oh, and if no system reqs are known ill test and tell.

Ok. Test 1. done.

Test computer:

Intel Pentium II, MMX, 360MHz
128MB Ram
NeoMagic MagicGraph256AV (2.5MB)
(Only Direct Draw)
Windows XP
Average Frame rate:
4~8

Yes, hmm, yes. I think a Pentium III 500 Mhz will be about minimum with 1 Ghz as recommended. There already was a performance chart with some systems on the Wiki, but they were all made when we were using Allegro instead of SDL:

It would be interesting to know, since you have such a low fps, did you test 0.0.9? And what is your fps with 0.0.8a, our last Allegro version?
