Hello,

I'd like to know what is the PC minimum configuration requirement for playing MM44 online ?

Thanks.

You don't need a fast machine, but you need a recent one (or at least not too old). I mean, one that have a recent video board with up-to-date video and OpenGL drivers.

If your video board does not perform hardware acceleration properly, then the game could become very slow.

Oh yes, veeery slow, also happens if your graphics drivers are out of date. My own drivers were just a few month old and the speed of the game was really painful...

Will it perform similar to T2R, because that works fine on my machine (I only use a laptop, don't own any desktops anymore)?

Will there be a download version (like T2R) or will it be a browser based game (also like T2R)?

Thanks

You can't assume that because T2R runs fine M44 Online will too. Two different animals. However if you have a fairly modern (ie recent) laptop, the performance is likely to be fine.

Unlike T2R, the game will be a downloadable only, and won't be playable directly from a web browser.

To add on to what Eric said; even though the game is downloaded, you will need an internet connection to play Memoir '44 Online in any of the three modes (Solo, Normal, Expert). Cool

Does this mean, you will be able to play against the computer or do you always have to play versus somebody else on the internet?

By the way; can't wait to see this thing coming online.

Great job DOW!!!!

Playing against other humans (which is called Normal Mode and Expert Mode) requires an internet connection. Playing against the AI (right now he's named Johnny) also requires an internet connection.

In short, you need internet to play Memoir '44 Online! Cool
