    CF requires a 1GHz processor?

    David,

    I see on the website you list "1Ghz processor or higher" as a requirement. Why is this? My 600Mhz laptop can run GPS software, play music, play DVDs / Video files. Why would I need that powerfull of a computer? And also, 256 MB of RAM?? Thats huge! Are you sure those are minimum requirements?

    Scott

    To run Centrafuse.

    He's the developer. I'm quite sure he's sure.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    Just try it, but CENTRAFUSE runs on Windows XP, which runs MUCH better with 256 over 128... I know I wouldn't run XP with 128... The memory requirements are all on the OS... The processor speed I just put... I have run it on an 800mhz and it worked fine... I just recommend a 1ghz or higher... Not saying it will not work on a slower machine...

    I also did that website in 2 days with no sleep... I will be finishing it and spending more time on the details...

    if your running xp, 256 is far from huge.....bare minimum I would say.......& I really wouldn't want to use any less than 512 on an xp machine if I had the choice...that's when xp will start to shine......xp loves ram...regardless of the apps your running

    Okay, I have to reinstall XP as I have some major issues right now. CF will not run but it's because my machine is all bugged out from the insane amount of crap on it. The older version of CF worked fine until the machine bugged out. XP runs with no problems at all (until I tried to hack something and F'ed it up). I'll let you know how it turns out. Maybe you could make a "minimum requirements" and a "recommended requirements" section?

    I'll let you know how it runs on my machine once I reinstall everything.

    sounds good... what is on the website right now is recommended... Minium I would say is 600mhz - 800mhz with 128 megs of ram...

    note: basically if you can run XP then you can run CENTRAFUSE...

    Also, according to Microsoft, the recommended minimum is 128MB Ram and 300mhz processor. Although that processor speed will most likely be insuffient for playing high quality video and maybe even high quality audio. If XP is only being used to run a couple apps, I see no reason why 128mb RAM wouldn't be suffient. Microsoft in fact stated the OS will run with 64mb but 128 is recommended.

    just speaking from personal experience from hundreds of computers at my office... Windows XP needs 256megs and doesn't run good until you give it 512... Microsoft is wrong...
