Hi there!

I am just setting up four "old" Desktop PCs and installed SDOE on all of them. Friends of mine and I plan to take a little LAN Ride in a kite or so (of course, I installed WWI also...).

Now, the old PCs are quite agile and still very usable (SDOE runs smooth and fine), but they lack a good video card. They only have an onboard graphic chipset "Intel(R) 82945G Express" with 8 MB RAM.

I tried ab bit in the options Menu, but surprisingly: I do not feel any difference!

What would you say is the optimum option:

OpenGL
OpenGL32
Direct3D HAL (I have this selection twice)

At the moment, they run with "OpenGL".

Generally OpenGL32 or Direct3d HAL are the ones to choose. You might need to pick up some old graphics cards if you can though.
