The requirements are more than BF1942, especially regarding RAM.
I used to play FH on my 2100+ Athlon XP, with 512 ram and a 64mb GF4 Ti42000, and that was perfectly fine. I'd imagine any half decent laptop you get now is bound to beat that. If you want to play FH2 on it though you'd have to be careful about the video card you get.
I'm sure others around here know more than me on the subject though.. never had a laptop myself.
(Edit:Arghhhh, I see the forums are messing up again)
Are planning to buy a laptop for myself where I intend to be able to play at least forgotten hope on (and maybe fh 2 the day it arrives). So my question is if you know what the minimum requirements for Forgotten Hope is? The same for BF1942? If so, where can I find those? and finally what do you recommend? After all it should be enjoyable to play the game :) Thanks! Johnnie
Okay, that sounds quite fair. As you say, most mediocre laptops sold today should handle it, except from the need of an possible upgrade of the graphic card. But anyone else got any info on it? As I said, I would like not to end up with a computer where the game is lagging.
You need some more RAM for sure.I have 1gb of Ram and Vanilla BF2 runs fine.OPK runs fine.Allied Intent is running fine only very rare lag sometimes takes place in OPK.
I have a crap G card, so i cant play BF2 I own it and specail forces!
All new video cards will play BF2, maybe not very well but they will run. My crappy D600 Latitude, 512MB, 1.6Ghz Centrino with mobile radeon 9000 plays BF1942 quite smooth (average 70 fps), but ghosting ruins its completely (havent tried FH). Not sure bout the specs on the good gaming laptops but i think you might find ghosting also an issue on the non-gaming ones, but hey i reckon ghosting renders LCD's useless and i aint paying $230 for the benefit of a skinny monitor. Theres a few fairly cheap laptops around with 1GB of RAM and Geforce 7600's in em, thats the ones id be startin at for BF2/FH2, if you can, spend a little more and go a Core Duo over a Centrino/AMD.
My laptop specs are: 2.8 Ghz Pentium 4 w/ Hyperthreading ATI Mobility Radeon 9600 Pro w/ 128 MB 1.3 GB RAM I've had it for a few years now (and just recently upgraded RAM to the current amount), and from my experience with these specs here's what you can do: 1. BF1942 runs 100% fine on fullest settings. 2. FH 0.7 runs fine most of the time on fullest settings; some few parts of some maps will cause lag, but overall not that big of an issue. 3. BF2 runs fine with medium-low settings; it takes forever to load, though. The "Verifying Client Data" portion takes forever, and load times take between 2 and 5 minutes per map. I think this is because my graphics card is rather aging. Mods don't take nearly as long to load though (no significant verifying client data phase) and so I don't expect this to be much of an issue with FH2. My laptop is a Eurocom D400V model by the way.
Both FH and FH2 (so far) run fine on the following hardware for me: Gigabyte K8 Triton nForce 4 Ultra motherboard AMD Athlon x64 X2 4800+ cpu Kingston 2 * 1024 MB DDR PC-3200 in DualChannel RAM memory nVidia GeForce Asus EN7900GT TOP graphics card Creative SoundBlaster X-Fi ExtremeMusic sound card Windows XP Home SP2
There is a visible performance drop on Windows Vista Ultimate x64, mainly due to bad nVidia graphics card drivers.
My new PC will run it just fine
3800+ 2 gig Corsair ram 8800gts
I would suggest you to hold on with buying Dx10 compatible cards untill some interesting games will utilize them. Vista yes, go for it, it won't drop in price, but those cards will or will be replaced by newer and better ones. It's not that you don't need it now, or won't make any use of it, it's a great card. Simply you can get even better one when actually some difference over 7s will be visible with Dx10 implementation, unless you have some 32" widescreen...
