Welcome to the DX-Boulderdash Homepage !
Dx-Boulderdash needs at least version 3 of DirectX to run. But that shouldn't be a problem nowadays. (and it needs Windows offcourse).
It runs fine on my Pentium 90.
On a 486 75. it runs, but rather slowly.
On my PII 350 it runs like a rabbit.
The game-engine is not boulderdash-specificly optimised to give maximum flexibility for future expansions, so I dont know if it runs terribly well on a 486.
if it doesn't run properly, please mail me with your System setup.
Basicly, it'll run on everything capable of running at least win95 and DirectX 3
For sound you need a soundcard that supports Directsound.
Some things to consider:
A 'speed' option is included in the options menu.
The game is tested on Windows95, Windows98 and Windows NT 4.0 .
Reports have been made that DX-Boulder doesn't restore the system colors properly on Windows 98 beta 3.
I'll fix that (some day) .
