Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Recommended RAM is 8GB. You don't mention an additional GPU either, so I think you would be in for a "Bad Time™" using just the integrated graphics and Intel drivers.

As per 3vil ^^, you would really struggle. I would say that the 3GB ram is going to be you downfall. I was about to run in with 4gb, AMD 3 core and a slow nVidia car. But I shut everything down in the background even security.So I could not even watch Youtube tutorials in the background.

Even with 8 GB, I ran out of Ram when doing landscaping.

Hope this helps,

I would spend a few $$ and upgrade ram, I am in OZ and got 8gb for $70

Highly suggest, that to develop, that you have 16GB as a minimum, and preferablly 32GB of memory.

I'm currently running with 16GB, and if I have a lot of resources, to load when opening a map, it can take a bit of time, think in terms of 10's of minutes, not just minutes.

I was writing a pure Widget game, Where graphics did not matter, but yes, @Jayice, ram, ram, ram. I have upgraded to 16, as 8 was causing problems with high def maps.
