Eschalon: Book 1 - Minimum Specs released

by Corwin, 2007-03-23 10:34:46

Basilisk Games has released the minimum specs for their upcoming Indie RPG Eschalon Book 1. Here they are for both PC's and Mac's.

Here is what we are estimating in terms of minimum specs needed to play. We have done quite a bit of testing on various machines to come up with these specs and we will continue to post updates as more testing is done.

// Windows //
Windows 98SE, ME, 2000 or XP
1.8 GHz processor
256 MB RAM (512 recommended)
DirectX 7.0 or later
3D accelerated graphics card
*Windows Vista is not yet supported, though the game may run just fine on your Vista installation. Currently Vista has some very rough drivers and not all hardware combinations may work correctly with Eschalon.

[Update 3/23/07] I just tried the game on a Toshiba 1.6GHz Pentium-M laptop with 512MB RAM, an Intel 915GM video chipset, and Windows XP...it was "playable" but not very fun due to the sluggishness.

// Macintosh //
Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later
1.6 GHz processor
256 MB RAM (512 recommended)
3D accelerated graphics card

For Macintosh users we are unable to support anything before OS 10.3.9 due to the development platform we are working with. We understand that this may disappoint some Mac users, and we are sorry. This was a requirement of the platform that we did not realize until we recently began porting the game.
