It's using windows '95 with 8 MB VRAM, AMD K6-2 500 megahertz CPU, and a 10 GB hard drive. Serious answers only please.

Heh

I still have the Zenith Supersport laptop with 8080 processor that I learned how to program on, with Borland Turbo Pascal.

Can I run Eve on that?

Not empty quoting.

Once you realize what a joke everything is, being the comedian is the only thing that makes sense.

"Serious."

Satisfied now?

I don't see why not, My Tandy 386 sx1 with 1.5 MB ram and 150mb harddrive allows me to check the internet, so even it should run Eve just fine. Eve should be awesome in 640x480 too.

The real chokepoint though is that 56k modem. Fleet fights are gonna be a *****.



Since the cessation of their usefulness is imminent, may I appropriate your belongings?

I am wondering if my Vic 20 that I had in '84 would be useful here.

It even had the tape drive.

Think I've got one of those in the garage - But pretty sure the monitor adapter might be a bit hard to work with. Move up to the C64; much superior connection hardware.

I actually stumbled across a programming guide for the Commodores and that was such a trip down memory lane I became Dr. Who for an hour.

I installed EVE on my internet connected refrigerator. It runs better than when it was on the toaster oven, but not as well as the microwave.

Well, of course. Everyone knows CPU works better when chilled, but over-clocking is better. Now, if you loaded EVE on your microwave, and put the microwave in the refrigerator, you'd really be smokin'!

OK, just for the challenge:

This will run on Win95 ...
http://www.microsoft.com/en-au/download/details.aspx?id=856

.. and once installed it will let you access any XP machine that can run EVE.


So the serious answer is YES it will

Got home and tinkered for an hour.

Now playing Eve on circa 1989 Nintendo Gameboy.

Problem is...with black and tan dot matrix screen, its really hard to determine who is blue.

Oh well..thats for the diplo to sort out!

Who needs F1 when you have up, down, left, right, B and A...not to mention select AND start!

You should upgrade your attic PC. An old machine like that cannot keep up with the demands of modern day attic management.
