Welcome to the WOFF forums Redjagd. You can likely run WOFF UE on your system but you will need to go with low settings in the workshop for terrain and scenery and such. What vid card do you have? Also, a bit more RAM would be helpful.
The devs recommend a 3.6ghz cpu, 2 gigs of vid memory, 8 gigs of RAM, and a 64-bit OS, sooooo...

Cheers!

Lou

Ouch.
Is this a old laptop?

I just realized that WOFF UE is only supported on 64-bit systems. My bad Redjagd, your computer will not run WOFF UE. Sorry about the misdirect.

To follow on what Lou said: The UE version of WOFF requires a 64-bit OS, so:

Your system might benefit from more RAM; however it appears currently limited to 3G (I'm guessing there may actually be 4G physically installed, but it typically gets handled/reported by Windows as only 3G due to system 'overhead' and the way memory is addressed). Because you're running a 32-bit version of Windows, adding memory unfortunately wouldn't do any good: The 32-bit operating system also means that, mathematically, the computer cannot access memory beyond 4G.

You can/should determine whether your PC can physically support more memory, then consider whether changing your OS is practical/desired at the present time. That will allow you to meet the requirement of a 64-bit OS.

Also, just as Lou says, it would help a lot to know the exact model of the video card. You may find that upgrading the card is a good choice - but keep in mind you're somewhat limited, because after a point, the processor will be a 'bottleneck'. For example, it wouldn't be a good idea to put a top-of-the-line video card in your system because your CPU will be holding the video card back. According to most people here (and the Devs) this game is very processor intensive and doesn't benefit much from multiple cores. So, you need to find a GPU that's a good match for the CPU you have, and beyond that maybe start thinking about upgrading the system.

I hope this helps. Please feel free to ask any questions.

Regards,

Redjagd, I strongly suggest listening to kksnowbear, the man knows of what he speaks and is one of our top sources around here when it comes to computer builds.

I’m no hardware guy, or software for that matter, but to get that system up to any kind of specs would probably be a crack dream. Out of the box the MB is will probably be an issue...among a whole lot of other things.

You may well be right, Duke...it's just that - if I can be perfectly candid here - sometimes (and for any number of perfectly compelling reasons), replacing a system may be economically impractical for some folks. Tough times, and what. So people often do with what they have, you know smile

That being said, it is possible the system might be worth considering an upgrade for - we'd have to know a lot more than we do at the moment. If it's not a good idea, then perhaps a replacement. Of course, that would be up to the OP. No doubt a system like that being generally described is going to be 'long in the tooth', but with some love and care, they can be serviceable. Sometimes for a lot less than replacing it. I think it wasn't terribly long ago some of the folks here were still playing on Core2 systems...Lou had one a while back, which I believe he played WOFF on. I know I've gotten a surprising mile or three out of some of those 'vintage' systems.

Back around to the OP: Duke has a point, of course. If there's any way possible, it would probably be good to start thinking about replacing the system.

And Lou - thanks much for the kind words. Your recognition is valued and appreciated smile

I hear you sir and I understand.
Just didn’t want the gentlemen to think with a couple of parts he’d be running WOFF in all (or even some) of it’s glory.
I have not computer shopped in a while but I have to believe, in this day and age, he can get a semi-decent system - better then his potential upgraded one - pretty cheaply. Plus then “upgrading” the old one to W10? I shudder at the thought. Even a used one may be a better avenue then putting money into what is probably a electronic dead-end.

But what do I know. I am full of opinions I throw out asked for or not! smile

Well thanks Lou.
Now the pressure is on to make sense in here at least half the time.

Wow Duke, you're going for 50%? I'm lucky if I make sense 10% of the time. The other 90% I spend confusing not only myself but most of those around me.

LOL No one said anything about Windows 10!!! I think I know your position on that - and, for what it's worth, I could not agree more. That's one "upgrade" I wouldn't wish upon my worst enemy. (Really, another subject there, for another thread)

You are correct concerning replacement systems. I do a little of that, myself (re-purposing gently-used hardware, that is) and fairly decent systems can be had for a relatively reasonable sum. But, that's the rub you see...What is "cheap" or "reasonable" is entirely relative, and will depend entirely on the circumstances. Very broadly and generally, any upgrade worth considering may start around $50, but can easily get into more. At that point, probably better to consider replacement, which - again, broadly and generally - means a jumping off point of several hundred plus.

But this is all speculative. The OP hasn't really asked about upgrade or replacement. I think we'd have to wait his responses before we get too carried away smile

Good Evening Gentleman! I´m quite amazed with the swiftness of your kind responses ! Perhaps i´v just came to the right place to make some friends. Regarding my honorable rig you re quite right its indeed an old desktop that was already upgraded several times and its reaching the end of his active service. Still its capable of running Rise of Flight with pretty high settings as well as other games like Il 2 1946, enabling even to some youtube LPS that i regularly upload to my channel. I was expecting anyway that WOFF should be hard on this system and so it will have to wait for my new ride, something i have i in mind ...but i´ll need patience to choose the right components and ultimately, to build it!

Warmest regards.

Red

Well I have to say I am a little surprised.
If you can run ROF on relatively high settings then I would give WOFF a try. At worst you’ll have it for your future upgrade as you will certainly need. How it runs can steer your upgrade path if you go that route.
Or save your pennies for a new system.

Well, to be accurate we don't really have a lot of specific details about his system. So it could be something very different from what we (each of us) imagine. Also, even though he says RoF runs with 'pretty high settings', that's not exactly whatcha call "empirical data" there biggrin And, there is no mention of screen resolution (can be a major factor), which settings are set (and how high), etc...

And finally there's the subjective aspect of both appearance and performance, meaning what looks perfectly acceptable to one player might be less so to another.

And let's not overlook the fact that Red is still dealing with a 32-bit OS, (I've done that once already in this thread, hearkening to my aforementioned 90% confusion rate). No WOFF UE until he moves to 64-bit.

To confide a dirty little secret WOFF UE does work on a 32-bit system.
I had my previous CP with WinXP when WOFF UE first came out (missing the 64 bit requirement somehow) till I bought my current system, just for WOFF UE, about a month latter. When did UE come out?
IIRC it (apparently) ran just fine but I needed a tip from OBD to get it installed which they graciously provided.
But, for the OP, that would just be another negative factor against smooth operation and it doesn’t look like he needs any more.

And you’re right kksnowbear - we have little hard info though I will say the OP’s original description left me with little hope and, indeed, there are a million variables that go into CP performance.
