System requirements

Initial remark: Oriantica uses 3D-hardware in your graphics card. Unfortunately there is today no real standard, and different manufacturers of hardware build in different functionality in their cards. Therefore it is almost impossible to theoretically determine which computers that will run Oriantica.

The only safe way is to try. Download and run the demo version. If it works, then everything is fine! The list below is an estimate of the computer requirements. If you do not know much about computers, we can say that a standard computer built year 1999 or later should do.

  • Computer: 100% DirectX compatible computer required. Windows 98, ME, 2000, XP and Vista are supported. Windows 95 may work.
  • CPU: 300 MHz or faster CPU recommended.
  • Memory: 32 MB RAM required. 128 MB required on Windows 2000 and XP, 512 MB on Windows Vista
  • Graphics Card: 16 MB AGP or PCI 3D Hardware Accelerator required. 64 MB recommended.
  • Sound Card: 16-bit sound card required.
  • CD-ROM: CD-ROM drive is required for the CD version.
  • Input Device: Keyboard and mouse required.
  • DirectX: Microsoft DirectX 8.0 or later must be installed in order to play Oriantica.

DirectX is an multimedia add-on for Windows, published by Microsoft. The latest version of DirectX can be downloaded from Microsoft.

If it does not work

First check that you have the "latest" updates of drivers for you graphics card, motherboard etc. and that you have the latest version of Oriantica. You can check this using the update function within the program.

If you still can't start Oriantica , you are very welcome to write to us. Describe your computer system as carefully as  you can, and explain the problems you have encountered. Send also the file winol2.log, which is created in the program directory when you run the program. It includes error codes and other information that can be of value to us when we try to understand the problem.
