Its often joked that system requirements for games are misleading in that you need much more of a computer than what is reported on the box to play. Well, this isn’t always true.
The system requirements for Railroad Tycoon 3 are a P3 450 (700 recommended), Direct X 8 compatable videocard with 16 megs of ram (32 megs recommended), 128 megs of ram
Last night I help get RRT3 running on the following system:
Pentium 2 250 mhz system
S3 virge adapter with an 8 meg voodoo 2 card
96 megs of ram
And amazingingly it RAN and ran ok. Now all the options were turned down to their lowest setting but amazingly enough, it ran. We went through the first two maps.
