The README states that the minimum requirements are a GeForce 1 (aka GeForce
256) or better.
Q: What's the minimum system I need to play this on?
A: I develop (and play) on a 800MHz Pentium 3 with a GeForce 2 Ultra. I
wouldn't want to play on less, but with this setup, the game gets a
respectable framerate (the worst is about 15-20 FPS, but on most indoor
scenes, we're talking about 25 to 40 FPS). The game is largely single
threaded, but Ogg Vorbis decoding is done in a separate thread, which
means you can get a _very_ slight speed boost from an SMP box.
Generally, you should put more CPU and (more importantly) more graphics
hardware in your box. The absolute low-end is probably a 600 MHz CPU
a GeForce 1 with the detail and resolution turned _all_ the way down
I wouldn't call that a good gaming experience). Reports of success and
failure, and specific benchmarks, are more than welcome.
