I think for the multiplayer beta you needed a 1GHZ CPU, 256MB ram and a Geforce 2/Radeon 7500 board. Sounded a little high for a strategy game.
Yeah, those were the minimum requirements (I tried to get in), and if you check out <A HREF="http://www.fileplanet.com/promotions/generals/" target="_new">here</A> they are having some contest where you get to play in the multiplayer test (yeah, its kinda late) and this is what they said for the minimum requirements are:
<i>It is based on older code, and may contain bugs, but we knew C&C fans would jump at the chance to try it! All you need is a <b>PC with a 2 Gigahertz or faster CPU, 512 MB of RAM, GeForce4 or more recent Direct3D-capable video card</b>, a FilePlanet subscription, and an adventurous spirit.</i>
So the minimum requirement for everything doubled! WTF is going on?!? Sounds <b>REALLY</b> steep for a RTS...
<font color=red> Remember, there is no such thing as a stupid question... just stupid people. </font color=red> :wink:
That is steep. Hopefully the older code they are using with that version had not been streamlined for performance. It would explain the absurdly-high requirements for playing. I can't see a finished product require a processor that was new only a year ago. They'd never sell any copies.
Guns kill people just like spoons make Rosie O'Donnell fat.
the system requirements aren't bad but the reccommended involves a 1.8Gig p4. does that seem pretty high to anyone else? i have an AXP 1800+ so I guess I should be fine but this is still a pretty stiff recommendation...I'd update my proc but the next jump up that is worth it is the 2600 which goes for about 250 and I don't think that I am ready to spend that much cash...ouch!!

p.s. it is a very WICKED GAME WITH KICK ASS GRAPHICS.
i have a 2.4 Ghz P4
nvidia gf4 ti4200 128Mb
19 inch flat screen crt
C&C generals looks so cool in 1600x1200 res
it is sooooooooooo coooooool
they made it rather simple (more like dune2) so anyone can play it and it is way more fun than the more complex C&C red alert 2.
OMG!! This game is by far one of the best RTS games ever. The only thing that sux is that the campaign is hella easy. I beat it in two days. The USA army just kills. With the airforce you dont even need to really attack. Just bomb the hell out of everyone. Max detail with no slowdowns here too. I just cant run it at 1600x1200. I dont think my 1800fp will go that high.
I may have one problem. Sometimes in campaign mode their is a flashing at the beginning mission breifings and movies. Kinda like snapshots being shown with flashes, i just see black though. I dont know what thats about. Otherwise its a really sweet game.
