Engine minimum spec?

    Hey guys! I'm wondering what the minimum spec is for games build with VS 5? I can find the min spec for the studio itself, but not the games made with it. This is for a pretty standard game without excessive graphics or anything.

    Because the specs vary depending on the game you make. Is it low resolution? Is it full hd? Is it 4K? Is it animation heavy? Do you use a lot of particles/shaders? Did you use png or webp for the images/animations? etc. etc.

    All of the things I mentioned above & more will determine what the min/recommended specs are to run a game made with Visionaire Studio. In general though, min specs for a decent experience would probably be at least a dual core cpu, with at least 4GB RAM, & 1GB dedicated VRAM, for 1080p - though higher is always better.

    Something you should consider doing is finding people who have vastly different specs, when you get around to asking people to test out your game & give you feedback.

    Quick tip #1: good optimization will allow your game to run on weaker machines.


    Quick tip #2: I highly recommend using webp from the beginning as the file sizes are much smaller than png, while being the same quality if you use lossless quality or lossy 100% (the latter being a lot smaller), as the smaller file sizes mean less HDD space will be required for your game & animations/images will be loaded much faster - however they will still require the same amount of VRAM to run.
