For those of us who do not have the program, what kind of specs are we looking at in order to maximize realmworks's potential. I would like to pick up a laptop to work with it on as my rig is no where near mobile, and I can't afford to over buy by to much. as a relational database would loading it on an ssd or in a ram drive help and is it small enough to allow for something like this? Oh and LFSeeney if you are reading this "HOWDY FROM TEXAS y'all!".

I have a pretty simple (albeit rather new) laptop. Lenovo AMD E1-1200 APU with Radeon HD Graphics 1.4GHz. 8G RAM, 64Bit Windows 8. A basic stock $380 machine from Best Buy that I use for tabletop prep/play and house data needs. RealmWorks runs pretty smoothly for me, though I hear from people with large realms that there is some slowdown with more content.

I'm running Windows 7 on a HP Folio13 800-TU with a 1.6GHz i5 processor, 4GB RAM and no discreet graphics card (I would talk about price, but I'm pretty sure there's no point since you're in Texas and I'm in Australia ). But the only time RW has given me grief is when I'm handling reveals/masks on large smart images. Aside from that it's been fine.

I run RW on a laptop at my game on a 7yr old Dell running Win7. It has a duel core processor and about 2gigs of memory. Realm Works seems to work just fine. Maybe the occasional page takes a second to load but that's about it.

I would recommend something with a better resolution than 1280 x 800 which is what I am running realm works on.

It could use more space on the screen. It is usable at this lower resolution, but I'd go higher res if I had a choice

Besides that most laptops should be able to cope with it as it rarely seems to take more than 300 MB in memory while running.

Working on - SW RPG d6 or add this source Update Souce and SW RPG FFG and More FFG SW not working yet
