Hardware

I ran the Direct 3D version flawlessy on a Hercules 3D Prophet III Titanium 500 Geforce3 card. Last time I installed the sim I ran it on a Banshee 2D/3D Graphics Accelerator Card which was based on the 3DFX Voodoo 2 chipset .... unfortunately I can't remember which version of the sim I installed - presumably it was the Glide (3DFX Voodoo) version.

On my Celeron 466 Mk II it ran very smoothly.

From the README.txt :

Windows 95 and Direct X5.2
