3.0 Windows XP AMD Phenom II X2 545 @ 3.1 GHz NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT Only working on PAL version, don't boot on NTSC. Fully playable. Full speed without any slowdowns, main videos and BGM are broken, and some problems with the audio, but not very annoying. luken
3.0 Mac OS X 10.7 Intel Core i5 @ 1.7 GHz Intel HD Graphics 4000 Everything's fine. Has some slowdowns in large areas, but the MacBook Air does a great job of handling this game. About 40-60FPS. Fully playable. ekatts
3.0-415 Windows 7 Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 2.39 GHz AMD Radeon HD 4870 Fully working with issues. Videos are OK, no graphic glitches are on the list, but sound stutters badly with no BGM at all. Could be solved thru LLE recompile, which is very CPU intensive. recon
4.0 Windows Intel Core 2 Quad Q9450 @ 3.4 GHz AMD Radeon HD 6950 Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets HD Widescreen Hack Spartacus
4.0-1340 Windows 7 Intel Core i5-4570 @ 3.6 GHz AMD Radeon HD 4870 FPS ~ 55(US). Some minor speed drawbacks. No glitches in video, sound and music. Playable to the end. Unruval

4.0-5256 Ubuntu 14.10 Intel Core i3-3220 @ 3.3 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Playable. Constant crackling with most sound effects using both HLE and LLE, including the walking sound effect, but nothing as bad as the first game's sound problems. Some slowdown here or there that stabilizes out the more you play, and texturing issues with letters in the menus, but otherwise gameplay is perfect. Xerxes
4.0-8329 Windows 7 x64 Intel Core i7 @ 4 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 Playable and completeable. There is some glitch that stutters the sound from time to time with whatever sound system you choose, also minor slowdowns. Tested with default settings. unruval
