    Hello,

    I was wondering if Vice city will run smoothly on my system. I was wondering if it will run nicely on my rig (lieb)
    Specs are:
    AMD Athlon XP 1900 : 512MB DDR Ram : 20 GB HDD : 40 GB HDD : Geforce 4 ti4200 128mb DDR : Custom case : Nexus front panel controls : CD-RW Drive : LiteON DVD Drive : 17" Compaq Monitor : SB 5.1 Live : Labtec 4.1 Speakers : Windows XP Pro SP1


    or if it might have a remote chance of running on my dell laptop (dlieb2)
    Dell Latitude D600, 1.40GHz, Pentium M, 14.1 SXGA+ (1400x1050 pixels), 512MB DDR Ram, 2 Dimms, 30GB Hard Drive 9.5MM 4200RPM, Floppy Drive, Windows XP ProSP1, Internal 56K Modem, 24X CDRW/DVD, Dell TrueMobile 1400 WLAN (802.11a/b/g, 54Mbps) mini PCI Card, 6-Cell Primary Battery, 2 USB 2.0 Ports, 10/100/1000 Ethernet LAN, ATIĀ® MOBILITY RADEON 9000 w/ 32MB DDR Ram.


    Thanks,

    thats a nice system... I reckon on your desktop it should run well through perhaps 1280x1024 or maybe even 1600x1200 :)

    it is a ps2 game with higher poly count textures for high res... hence I seriously doubt it will not work well...

    bout your laptop... I dunno m8... you will have to check it out... it should work decent.. but with 32mb sdr.. it may not be breathtakingly fast @ higher res.. try it out @ perhaps 800x600 or something equally low... and it should be plenty smooth enough...

    I just saw VC running smoothly on a P4 1400 with 256 MB SDRAM and a Geforce 2 MX200 32 MB vidcard. It ran at 640x480 @ 32-bit

    Okay, so I'm guessing that I will just be able to run Vice City on my dell laptop (good, than I can play it when I am travelling around this summer) and very well on my desktop.

    Buggy? Haven't noticed any big bugs yet. Anyway for those who are curious, I now run VC smoothly on a PIII 800, 256 MB SDRAM and a Geforce 3 TI200 card @ 1024x768 @ 32-bit with full options.
