Will it run on a Powerbook 8 MB Rage 128?

Postby JGO » Thu Aug 12, 2004 4:32 pm

Hello everyone,
I recently purchased but have no recieved yet the Mac version of uplink.

I found out that I am going to be traveling to India for work, and as such would like be be able to play uplink on my old powerbook as opposed to my powermac.

The powerbook I have is a Ti G4 500, it has an 8MB ATI Rage Mobility 128 in it.

Will this be able to handle the OpenGL from uplink?

Any information would be appreciated.

Thanks.

The system requirements are: 128mb RAM, G3 or better, OS 9 or X.

It looks like your system more than meets these, so I wouldn't think you would have any problems. :)

Thank you for the info! I appreciate that.

I can't wait to play uplink on the plane, simply because I know I will get some strange looks.

LOL, that would suck if there were a marhsall that thought I was auctually up to something. :lol:

What is funny is that most people are simple enought when it comes to computers that something like uplink would appear to them to be real. I mean it is even more serious appearing than some of the stuff you see Hollywod putting out.

:P

Hey it whould be a nice 'research' to do.. see how people react to such things... Act a little bit draw a little attention to yourself by 'trying to not draw attention'. like wear a dark coat sunglasses etc, sit in a cafe across the bank (make phonecall saying something like 'The black rabbit is in position') and start 'hacking a bank'.
Have a friend take pictures (hidden ofcource) of the reactions. :D
