To run Topicscape, we recommend 256MB of RAM or more (512MB desirable), and at least a 1GHz processor. A good graphics adapter purchased in the last year or so is a key requirement as Topicscape works in pseudo-3D. Your graphics adapter must support 3D, have a minimum of 32MB RAM on board and have a driver installed that supports at least OpenGL ‘1.2 with extensions’ (this is equivalent to OpenGL 1.3).
Before concluding that your computer cannot run Topicscape, we recommend checking that the drivers installed on your computer are the latest for your graphics adapter. Topicscape’s web page at http://www.topicscape.com/graphics has links to download pages for up-to-the-minute drivers of major graphics manufacturers’. It also has a simple guide to finding out which graphics manufacturer’s chip set your computer uses.
On some graphics cards, Topicscape will run slowly if you have the graphics color quality set to 16-bit. Please try changing it to 32-bit.
All three editions of 3D Topicscape run on Windows® 8, 7, Vista, XP, and 2000.
