System Requirements of a Finished Game
« on: June 29, 2010, 05:18:50 am »
I am just wondering what the system requirements would be for a finished game in SFML, that does not use opengl, and excluding variable things like color depth. (windows)

It depends on the game. The only way to know for sure is to test on a variety of systems.
I use the latest build of SFML2

How does a SFML game not require OpenGL?

I think he means no 3D.

Even a 2D game can have hefty system requirements (e.g. an RTS game). It all depends on how complex the game is.

Just try your application on a variety of computers. It's the only way.

There is no requirement for an SFML app because it depends how much you are drawing / what else you are doing.

Well there is minimum size of a compiled application and a lot of it depends on which dlls you are using, but other than that it depends on the target hardware and what your application does.
