No, in that my computer is a Mac.  If you really want to reach the most people, you'll shoot for simultaneous release of a Mac port with all your future games.  ;)

Yeah this applies to Macs as well, if yours is able to run TSL nicely under WINE then it should be able to run future products meeting this same list of specs if we port them natively to Mac.

I have an Intel Pentium IV 3.0Ghz with 3GB DDR RAM. WinXP with an ATI X1650 AGP 512MB graphics card. Although I haven't had it for long, my last system was not much different; a 2.5Ghz processor with about 1.5GB of Ram I think with the same video card. I'll be upgrading everything in the next month or so for the first time since 2002 or something that will blow everything I just mentioned out of the water.

I had a 486 PC AT, running Windows 3.1.  I tried to play your game, but it laughed at me and then your game ate my computer, burped and left.

HAHAHAHA...

I am running:

Windows 7 64 bit
Intel i7 860
8 GB RAM
Can't remember the graphics card, but it is a 1GB dedicated to video memory.

I meet all the requirements but the video memory. I just have the card that came with the computer, which only has 96 MB dedicated to video memory. I can still get through the game, it just has a hard time during some sequences that take place in larger environments, like the tower sequence, or on screens that have fire, mist, or water. I also have to turn off all reflections and stuff like that.

Ah.  Well in that case, yeah, it meets them just fine.  ;)

4 GB RAM (3.5 usable)
nVidia GeForce Go 7300, 256MB video memory

So everything's fine here.

With sufficent overkill to spare :) I am *so* happy my resolution is native for the game too ^^ I dont' like stretching graphics to fit.
Title: Re: Systems Poll - Most important poll EVER

Even if it wasn't, your graphics card should letter/pillarbox things automatically (and if it doesn't, just change its settings).
Title: Re: Systems Poll - Most important poll EVER
Post by: SilverBall10 on March 08, 2011, 10:13:47 AM
Pentium 4 - 2.8 Ghz
512 MB Ram
Windows XP SP3
Ati Radeon 9600 Pro with 128 MB video memory

So, no, but the game runs the same. (Oh, now I remember, it seemed to stop or skip some frames when loading the horse sequence, but fortunately in the end, the scene appeared and I could go on playing)
I should buy a new one, but my main computer is a Mac since 2006, so, I'm not interested in a new Windows PC.
I keep it and use it for games like this, until it runs.
I love Macs.

Uh- I should put down my specs though... I'll change it when I get home IF I got them wrong:-

Pentium Duo core 2.4Ghz
RAM- 2GB
Videocard- I forget the exact model, but it's Asus, and it has 1Gb of onboard memory. IT runs Bluray on HDMI cables
Platform- Windows XP SP2
Screen- AOC 21inch HD 1080i screen (Forget the exact model number.)

Operating System : Ubuntu 10.10
CPU : Intel Celeron T3500 (2.1 GHz)
RAM : 2GB
Video Card : can't find it in the specs, but considering this is a brand new computer, I would guess it meets or exceeds this.

I'm not going to vote in the poll because I cannot verify the last spec (I have a laptop, which may be why the specs are particularly opaque on this issue)

Anyway, TSL works fine for me under Wine aside from installation issues and bugs noted by Windows users.

The likelihood I would buy Corridor 9 or another Phoenix Studios game would dramatically increase if it were ported to Linux *wink*.

I can't vouch for Linux, but we've got some stuff cookin' for the mac. I just can't get any more specific than that right now. You'll find out what it is in due time though.

I'll clarify that a bit - all of our future projects are going to be done in the Unity engine, which ports natively to Windows, Mac, iOS stuff (iPad, iPhone, etc.) PS3, Wii, 360.  I don't think it does a Linux direct build though, but I'll check.

So we're finally making it public that we're using unity for the future? Awesome. That should make porting our games that much easier to do.

Really? MacOS and Linux are both based off of Unix; I would be surprised if it supports one and not the other.
Title: Re: Systems Poll - Most important poll EVER
Post by: wilco64256 on March 08, 2011, 09:20:37 PM
Yeah it doesn't do a "Linux" build but if you can run Mac stuff or Windows stuff or whatever in Linux (I'm not all that familiar with Linux, sorry) then it should run just fine.  I wouldn't be surprised if they added that as an option before long though.

Yes to OS, Processor, and Mem. I don't know a damn thing about video cards though. How do I know what I have and if it's DirectX compatible and whatever?
Title: Re: Systems Poll - Most important poll EVER
Post by: wilco64256 on March 14, 2011, 04:57:33 PM
If you were able to play the game at all then it's definitely DirectX capable.  You can check how much dedicated video memory your computer has by using the Windows "Run" feature to open a program called DXDIAG.  Look on the "Display" tab of that window that comes up and it'll tell you in the memory section.

Operating system:  Windows 7 Home Premium

Processor:  Genuine Intel CPU U7300 @ 1.30GHz

Installed memory (RAM): 4.00 GB

Video Card: NVidia GeForce G210M (Microsoft Publisher) Driver version 8.15.11.8688
No idea what the memory on it is.

So, mostly, I do exceed the requirements.

Well 1st time poster big time lurker.

Here are my specs
Intel Core 2 duo E8400 @ 3.00GHZ
8GB of DDR3 ram
Nvidia Geforce GTS 250 1GB
Win 7 64 Pro

So yes specs surpass the min required specs.

I just noticed this poll for the first time! Exceed.

WinXP Pro 32 bits
Intel Core 2 Duo E8600 3.33 Ghz
4 GB of RAM
Nvidia GeForce GTX 260

AMD Athlon 64 x2 6000+

4 gb ddr2

Nvidia gts 250 1 gb

I'm suprised at how well this setup still works for games, even though it's technically "outdated".  Never had a problem, even crysis 2 worked in high settings. Now crysis 1, that's another issue...

Title: Re: Systems Poll - Most important poll EVER
Post by: darthkiwi on April 08, 2011, 05:02:06 AM
My desktop has:

Windows XP
3.2(ish?) single-core processor
Nvidia 8600 graphics card
2GB RAM

My laptop is more powerful:
Windows Vista
2.1 dual-core processor
Nvidia GT130M graphics card
4GB RAM

And both run TSL just fine. And my laptop has run every Unity program that I've ever shaken a stick at, so to speak. So I'm all set!

My Laptop specs are as follows:

Processor: 2.2GHZ
Ram: 2GB
Chipset  type/memory: Intel 4 Express/797MB
OS: Windows 7 32bit

Yet, despite the fact that it should run the game just fine, on full screen it crashes and if I play it in a window, it runs so slow I can't even get started. >_<

Edit: The problem started after installing episode 4, 1-3 played smoothly.

Post by: fluxmaster on January 04, 2012, 11:01:54 AM
Did you do a full install of episode 4 or the patch?  If you did the patch, try the full install in a different folder instead, such as C:\TSL.  That is what I did, and it worked fine.
