Hi everybody

I can't seem to find the system requirements for a game written in B+ (perhaps I haven't looked hard enough?). Yes, I know different games require different hardware, but there are still some basic requirements for all games.

Windows version, DirectX version, graphics card... Any suggestions?

b+ minimum specs are:
- windows 95 or above
- a sound card

DirectX version

1.0 minimum

graphics card

Any DirectDraw capable card will do fine. OpenGL and Native rendering modes are available as well through the SetGfxDriver function.

DX 1 comes installed with all versions of windows (even nt).

Hm, that's nice. Will all graphics commands work with all versions of DirectX?

Not unless you have SP5 installed. Then, you get DX 3 which was the last released for NT4
