System Requirements Based on Graphics Quality Settings

In the Options-Graphics window in Entropia Universe you can adjust the settings for the General Graphics Quality. This will influence the realism of the graphics but also performance. Below are the system requirements for each Graphics Quality option.

Very High Settings

Internet Connection: ADSL or better

Computer Processor: Intel I7 / AMD Phenom II
Computer Memory: 4096 MB RAM or more
Graphics Card (with latest drivers): NVIDIA GeForce 285 / ATI Radeon 4870 or better
DirectX: Version 9.0c or later
Sound Device: Direct X compatible sound device
Screen Resolution: 1024 x 768 pixels
Hard Drive Space: 10 GB of free space

High Settings

Internet Connection: ADSL or better

Computer Processor:  Intel Core duo or AMD Athlon 64 X2 Series or better
Computer Memory: 2048 MB RAM or more
Graphics Card (with latest drivers): NVIDIA GeForce 8800 Series or better / ATI Radeon 2900 series or better.
DirectX: Version 9.0c or later
Sound Device: Direct X compatible sound device
Screen Resolution: 1024 x 768 pixels
Hard Drive Space: 10 GB of free space

Medium Settings

These requirements should be considered the minimum system requirements for Entropia Universe:

Internet Connection: ADSL or better

Computer Processor: Intel Pentium 4 2.8g hz or AMD Athlon 64 Series or better
Computer Memory: 2048 MB RAM or more
Graphics Card (with latest drivers): NVIDIA GeForce 7800 Series or better / ATI Radeon 1900 series or better.
DirectX: Version 9.0c or later
Sound Device: Direct X compatible sound device
Screen Resolution: 1024 x 768 pixels
Hard Drive Space: 10 GB of free space

Low Settings

If your system falls below the Medium Settings requirement you may still be able to participate in Entropia Universe, but your visual experience will be hampered. If you use Medium Settings on a system below Medium Settings requirements, you may suffer from low frame rate. If you use Low Settings, there may be artifacts such as white texture-less avatars, no ground vegetation, short draw distance and no shadows.

Please note that support is not given on technical issues deriving from a computer that only handles the Low Settings.

Special Notes

SLI and Crossfire are supported.

Please ensure that you have the appropriate SLI/Crossfire drivers for your operating system.

N.B. As the Entropia Universe is under continual development, system requirements may change over time.

The Entropia Universe client is designed to operate on Microsoft compatible PC:s running Microsoft Windows as an operating system. It is not designed to run natively under Mac OS X or Linux.

However, your Mac running OS X or PC running Linux that meet the hardware system requirements for Entropia Universe may also be able to run Microsoft Windows, the operating system needed to run the Entropia Universe client software.

There are primarily two ways to run Windows along with Mac OS X or a Linux distribution on your existing computer, either in a dual-boot configuration or in a software based virtual machine. Both ways may require additional computer skills than is needed to install the Entropia Universe client on a PC with Microsoft Windows preinstalled.

Before you continue reading PLEASE NOTE that Entropia Universe support cannot assist you in configuring your computer. Further, the information provided below should not be considered as recommendations and is provided as a guide only. MindArk and its Planet Partners will not be responsible for any damages incurred by you as result of using these solutions, and hereby expressly disclaims all liability for any direct or indirect damages arising from or related to your use of these solutions.

Please also consider that you may also have to buy licenses for Microsoft Windows that is applicable for use on virtualized environments, and virtual machine software.

Using a dual-boot solution:
To set up a dual-boot environment to run Microsoft Windows on your intel-based Mac running OS X, use Apple's BootCamp software. See:
http://www.apple.com/support/bootcamp/
for system requirements and instructions.

For Linux PC:s a dual-boot setup may differ depending both on your hardware and your Linux distribution. Please see your distributions help and support pages for instructions. A general overview can be found on the help pages for the popular Ubuntu distribution:
http://help.ubuntu.com/community/WindowsDualBoot

Using software based virtual machine:
A virtual machine is a software that emulates a computer’s hardware and e.g. makes it possible to run another operating system as a program. However, please note that the performance inside a virtual machine is almost always lower than when the operating system is run natively on the computer. For graphically intense software such as Entropia Universe the virtual machines ability to utilize the hardware’s graphic acceleration is a key feature. Recent virtual machine software can make more use of the computers graphic acceleration and provide a decent overall performance. Please note that this solution was not tested by us and the guidelines here are based on information provided by other users.
While it is hard to give more precise system requirement specs for virtual machines, we recommend other users’ experience shows that you should give the virtual machine 4Gb of RAM and 2 CPU cores if available. While performance may vary on many parameters users have reported that it is possible to run Entropia Universe with medium to high graphic settings inside the virtual machine "Parallels Desktop 6" and Microsoft Windows 7 on an iMac 27" (2010 model) with intel Core i7 CPU.
