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"

This question is heavily dependent on what you have in your scene / game. If you have a simple 2d platformer without a lot of effects you could run at 30+fps on a cheap laptop. On the other hand if you have a 3d game with high resolution textures and a lot of fancy effects you could need an i7 and 10 series GPU. It's really up to you what platforms your game runs smoothly at.

Officially these are the minimum specs:

  • Desktop PC or Mac.

  • Windows 7 64-bit or Mac OS X 10.9.2 or later.

  • Quad-core Intel or AMD processor, 2.5 GHz or faster.

  • NVIDIA GeForce 470 GTX or AMD Radeon 6870 HD series card or higher.

  • 8 GB RAM.

Thank you. I probably won't run anything much more advanced then maybe a super simple FPS with UE4's 3D 'character' with little to no effects. Do you think this will run it? https://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msusa/en_US/pdp/Lenovo-Z50-75-Signature-Edition-Laptop/productID.2740240000

Thank you again. :)

You will probably have some issues with that since there isn't any GPU and I am not sure of the on-board graphics capabilities of the AMD-fx7500. From what I can tell on https://cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=AMD+FX-7500+APU&id=2375 it is below several i5s.

Hmm, I don't know.

I think this is deleting posts with amazon links. I posted a good deal. Not sure if you got it or not.

This is a pretty good deal for a laptop:

Thank you. I'll stop posting amazon links and I'll leave you alone. Your time is appreciated.
