I used to run cube1 on a pentium2, with some success. (Not, of course
gaming success, as I lasted about 2 seconds at most in death match
with my sons on the lan. And we were on the same team!) I think the 3D
vid card is the key to success with this game. Nexuis is a real hog for
powerful video cards, and for someone with older eyes, it's like
staggering through a stygian night. I'm about to try cube2 on my 2.8
pentium4 with gforce4 vid card. Let you know how it goes.
