# 1 Got It Running On A Netbook!
01-18-2010, 01:44 AM
Hey everyone, first post!

Just wanted to jump in and say hello, and let everyone know that I got the application running on an Asus EEPC tonight! LOL

My original intention was to run it in XP on a MAC using bootcamp, but due to a series of complications, I wasn't able to do that. A combination of boredom and curiosity lead me to see if it would work on my brand new netbook. After a lenghty install process, I logged in using "safe mode" in the options. A warning dialog popped up and I clicked the option to run the app despite the hardware shortcomings. (handy feature to set everything to lowest settings here!)

BOOM! she booted up, I created my first character and was underway. While technically I would call it "playable" as you could move and interact, it was * ahem * a bit of a slideshow. Although I never really expected it to be playable, I didn't even think it would boot! So I'm pretty proud of my little $279 "powerhouse".
