If you already mentioned it novus, what my computer has to have to run the game with the highest setting? (not including the 1024x768 resolution)

High quality sound seems to work OK on a 500 MHz Pentium III. I used to run UQM at 640x480 with OpenGL linear interpolation and high quality sound on a 500 MHz Pentium III with an nVidia TNT card.

Strange. I do it on 600 and there are some slowdowns while the victory music. Maybe the full screen, 32-bit has to do anything with it?

Full screen ought to make it cost less, as it doesn't have to deal with all that windowed junk.

I jumped from 500MHz Celeron (which could barely handle 640x480 windowed, and slowed down a fair bit there) up to a 2GHz Athlon XP; now I can run it with biadv and high quality without difficulty.  I'm probably not the best person to ask about personal experiences.

As long as we're talking requirements, though, the code is really multithreaded; anyone out there got an SMP machine (with subGHz processors) that they want to try UQM on?   Cheesy
