Windows system requirements

Post #1 »

Hello.

Can you post some basic info about Windows requirements?
It will be 32bit or 64bit?
Will WinXP be supported?

Regards,
Borg

The system requirements will be very low to actually run the game.

Minimum
Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8
Dual core CPU (Intel Core 2 Duo or AMD Athlon64 X2)
2 GB RAM
256 MB dedicated video RAM
2048 x 2048 maximum texture size.
OpenGL 2.0 compatibility
Hard Drive ~500MB
1280 x 720 Minimum Resolution

Recommended
Quad core CPU
512 MB dedicated video RAM

The executable will be 32 bit, there were no benefits to using 64 bit in my tests. If anything it was slightly slower.

Borg, I think I accidentally deleted your post about 4:3 screen resolutions! Sorry... :oops:
1280x960 and other 4:3 resolutions will be fine, so long as they are larger than the minimum size.

The game will run perfectly fine on 64 bit systems, but the executable will be 32 bit.
