as good as your intentions were, i still can't comprehend how a game like this could be made on MMF. it requires a 32MB video card, dude...

people still have their P166s and win 95... i'm sorry, this game does not run on low-end machines! you can do anything (with MMF) if you put your mind into it.

well well. im running Celeron 750 with a lousy 8MB video card and the game runs like a dream: 47-51 FPS. there must be something terribly wrong with your Windows configuration! Please set the 'Animated Crowd' to '0%' in the Options screen and the game should run much faster. Press 'F12' during the game to see the FPS. The loading bar is not definitely fake. lol.

You stole my idea! Well, cept that I tend to make my games a lot more compact and avoid 3D-rendered images for text-based ones :P. 32 MB card?

It has been tested that the game runs up to 10 FPS faster with 32MB Riva TNT2 card than 16MB Riva TNT1 card. That's why 32MB is recommended.

"im running AMD XP 3200 and it lags like hell on that" now im running Intel Pentium II 400 with 3D Rage Pro AGP 8MB and the game runs like a dream: 47-51 FPS. No lagging at all.

This game really does lack fun! OH and the game worked fine on my computer! 2800mhz XP:P

heyy, this is just a TechDemo! Not a final game. So no wonder if it lacks fun! In the final game there will be traps, animals and the career game mode.
