View Full Version : Xsyon on a netbook?

02-24-2011, 02:02 PM
Bit of a weird question, but I'll be out of town for launch week and will only have a netbook to tide me over.

I've been able to run WoW and a couple of other low-demand MMOs on minimum settings on this netbook, and I was wondering if any of yall had any anecdotes re:running Xsyon on way below minimum specs.

What I got is a 1.6GHz processor, no graphics card, and a whopping 1 GB of ram.

Any thoughts?

Need to know the type of chips it has (everything has a chip that processor the grapics) it needs to support shader model 2.0 if it does you probaly are able to run it at the lowest settings. (I had cod:mw running os a similar netbook using a software tool to emulate the shader model .. 2 fps but it worked :P )

3d analyze (http://www.3dfxzone.it/files?object=3dfx&objid=100) is the name of the tool (click to download)

I work at bestbuy and we sell those netbooks, its an intel Atom processor and an intel HD graphics chip, 1gb ddr2 ram with either a 160 or 250gb solid state storage drive. The netbook as a single slot RAM slot, you could remove the 1gig ram and replace it with a 2gig stick.... I was curious if Xsyon would run on these netbooks too...

It probably will, Eve runs fine (not counting fps) on those ( not the old but the new client) I modified mine to have 2gb ram ad a 250gb notebook harddrive as my old model only had a 8gb ssd drive in it ( linux cheap version) worked fine untill I sat on it and broke it hehe.
thing is there are a lot of Intel chips. mine had a intel 945 chip , those are utter crap and only support shader model 1.1 on their own.

Mine is an Intel 3150 and the internet tells me this supports shader model 2.0, so with any luck it will work!

don't be surprised if it doesn't take a look at the FAQ for requirements www.xsyon.com/faq

I tried the game on a dual core 2.0 laptop with integrated graphic card and I got like 3 Fps. It was unplayable.
