Test Entries
Revision OS CPU GPU Result Tester
r6587 Windows XP Intel Pentium 4 @ 3 GHz ATI Radeon X1550 Drops To 9FPS At Intro, CPU at 43%. Tried disabling Fog and EuRGB60, neither of which worked.
r7248 Windows 7 Intel Core i7-920 @ 2.66 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260 Crashed with fog enabled. Playable now fog disabled but choppy at 1680x1050
r7369 Windows 7 Intel Core 2 Quad Q6700 @ 2.66 GHz NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX Playable, but low FPS (10-20). Use DX11 to avoid post-intro crashes
r7483 Windows 7 Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 @ 3 GHz NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT Let me say, around 80% playable. Keeps nice FPS at small places, but usually gets a big slowdown on big scenarium. Averagely, it's ~25FPS - but usually drops to 15. Yet, it's reasonably enjoyable. You get used to the slowdowns. Disable fog and lightning for better performance. Overall, works good. Still, as it has no split-screen multiplayer, I see no point on emulating it, when you can just play the pc version. Rafaello Fareday
r7624 Ubuntu 10.04 AMD Phenom II X3 720 NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT Running 2x Native Resolution, 2x AA, 4x AF @ 50-80%. Quite slow, lots of hiccups. HLE is working fine though. keller999
4.0-4175 Windows 7 Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 @ 4.2 GHz ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT The game is perfect playable. Sometimes have a small FPS drop, but that isn't annoying (Sorry for my English XD). With 30FPS (30 the max in this game). KicsiF@ater
