I believe it may run quite smoothly ... 'cos I do remember running it on a 286 ... or was it a 486? ohmy.gif ... ok, I think it was a AMD 486dx2-80 (80Mhz!) ... tongue.gif ... so yes, it will work.

You had a dx2-80?? Those were super-rare. The earlier ones ran so hot sometimes that they melted.


Good to hear it's out there.. pdaXrom is indeed quite interesting. There is a good hacking community focused around that project.

Yeah its pretty rare ... and very shortly, the 100Mhz barrier was broken by AMD and the subsequent 133, 166, 200 Pentiums started coming in ...

But it was good while it lasted ... those were the days when I had a 40mb hdd ... double-stacked (Software Compression via Stacker!) to "80mb". wink.gif

oh man, I remember spending $500 on a 300MB hdd sad.gif

I only recently started buying new hardware.. everything has been second-hand. =p

The dx2-80 is faster than the dx4-100.. 40x2 vs 25x4 .. it made a difference in some cases, like playing Descent. =)
