Notes From the game's documentation
  • Good Video Card DirectX is still considered to be a new technology. We found that some video card installed on the older PCs do not have good DirectX support. This may cause serious performance loss while playing the game. If you find that it's running slow, be sure to check with the video card manufacuturer so that you can get the latest and the greatest DirectX support.
  • Game Pad This is not a "must-have" item, but strongly recommended. Your keyboard may work OK, but hey, this is a shooting game from yesteryears. You need it! (If you are using Windows NT, you can disregard this requirement)
  • Sound Card This is not a "must-have" item, but highly recommended to enjoy this game.
