System requirements?
« on: February 28, 2011, 19:28:50 »
Hello, what are the system requirements for NightSky? Yes, I know they're quite low, but I intend to play the game on my old laptop with integrated graphics card where I couldn't run games like Aquaria, so... Though NightSky seems to be less power hungry.

Yes, NightSky is certainly not power-hungry (it does require an OpenGL compatible graphics card though), but the only way to know for sure it'll run well on your laptop is trying the demo.

The C++ build uses OpenGL, the MMF build uses Direct3D. I'm pretty sure the C++ build is faster in any case, I think it might run on an integrated gpu since there really isn't much to it. Just some textures moving around on the screen.

EDIT: I just read that the C++ build requires OpenGL 2, which is pretty much standard nowadays, but I'm not too sure about low-end graphics cards... so it might not run after all. Best luck there.
