Hey, I was just wondering if my computer is fast enough to run this modification for Battlefield 1942: Dell Dimension XPS B800r. Pentium III 800 MHz processor. 256 megabytes RD RAM. 2047 megabytes Virtual RAM. 4 megabytes left on my Hard Drive (25 megabytes overall). ATI Radeon 9550 AGP video card (256 megabytes), with latest drivers. SB Live! sound card (32 megabytes), with latest drivers. Windows 98 Second Edition. All of the graphic settings and video settings are set at low, and all video features (shadows etcetera) are off. All of the sound settings are set at high (everything). No other processes running (not even Explorer). No spyware, malware, adware, trojans, viruses etcetera. I play with 260% bots, 21% CPU time given to the bots, and everything on hard (75% difficulty overall). That's pretty much it. Can my computer run this modification for Battlefield 1942?

FH requires something like 2.5 gigabytes, if that is all the space you have you might need clear some space on your hard drive. Other then that you should be able to play with low settings.

4 megabtyes left free on your hard drive, 25 overall? huh? so do you have 4mb free or 25, and either way that's not enough. That is on a secondary drive right? I mean with that little space left on a root drive windows would start acting funny, things like page files and virtual memory so I'm a bit confused about that.

I just don't think that's gonna cut the mustard. I'm surprised that it does now, especially running bots. 256mb of ram is very little these days, minda you Win98 uses less ram than Winxp, you still have to deduct from your total ram what windows uses and that gives you an idea of what % of ram can be put towards gaming.

Let me put it this way. I have 4 megabytes left on C:\ (my only drive) and it's total space is 25 megabytes. Well, 6 megabytes now (I was assuming that this modification was 2 gigabytes). Also, just with Battlefield 1942, I can run it on most maps with 400% bots and 25% CPU time given to the bots, with some lag, but only in parts with a lot of bots. Is there a way to compare this to this modification (like 400% = 200% and same performance)?

You must mean 4 GIGAbytes.

Hahaha, yeah, I meant 4 gigabytes (which is what I'll have after installing this modification). Sooo, everything is alright then, even if I have to lower bot settings to make it crisp?

yeah it should. But you might lag a bit. I consider you just test it out. Best way to find out man.

Yeah I agree, just test it out and see. It may be a waste of time but it may work out ok. Those specs you listed I would put at the extreme low end of the req's for FH but I suppose you kind of knew that and that would explain why you ask. FH can be a demanding game at times, especially with maps like Eastern Blitz or Counterattack, etc.

with only 256mb of ram, you might be pushing it a bit but you might be ok. ull need to turn your sound down to medium tho

Windows 98SE is not too gaming friendly either...

When you extract, make sure you have enough space for all the files. As in, download/extract one at a time, otherwise you will be annoyed to find out that your hard disc has no space on it.
