There really isn't a way to make a game that's at the same time able to run on a very old crappy hardware, and on the newest cutting-edge behemoths.
That's what DosBOX was created, but this GOG version goes too far on MODERN computers in my opinion.
If you're still running a very old system and want to play SS2, I guess you're better off buying the original CD copy on eBay or something.
The funny thing is that... Notebooks do not have CD drives... I'd prefer have the original game with extras, instead of downloading a pirated version -> Without copy protection or any hussle.
The point of GOG is making old games able to run on MODERN hardware. And let's be honest - if you're on a netbook, you're not really an old-schooler, right?
You're taking it a bit too far TBH... As I told you, it's ran LOADS of new games with the help of 3rd party software, such as Second Sight with 3D-Analyze, oddly enough...
HOW DARE YOU PICK ON MY newborn BABY lol.
the game should run ok on a netbook as well. just try it.
I'll try a demo first, am not too sure at this point :(I
Frankly I find it hard to believe that you are still running a machine with a less than 1.8GHz processor, 2GB of RAM and a DirectX 9 compatible video card/chipset.
Minilaptops/notebooks/netbooks with integrated video cards, not all of us want the high-end puters which can do cooking & babysitting for oneself. No offense.
