Q. What hardware do I need to view the Virtual City?

Running Virtual City on your computer needs a lot of computation power, so we highly recommend an Intel Pentium III processor based computer for a better experience. The minimum system configuration you need a computer based on the Intel Pentium 166MHz processor with MMX technology. However, the performance will differ greatly and you will not be able to see much detail in the texture and the frame rate will be slow. 32 MB of RAM is required while more RAM will improve the system performance. Since the Virtual City is graphic intensive, we recommend you to use a PCI or AGP 3D graphics acceleration card to view the Virtual City. 4-8 MB of video RAM is recommended while the 4 MB of video RAM is minimum.
The display card should support Microsoft DirectDraw to gain ideal performance.

Q. What software do I need to view the Virtual City?

To view the Virtual City, the user needs a web browser (Either Netscape Navigator or Microsoft Internet Explorer). Also an additional software plugin for the particular browser should be downloaded to view the Virtual City.

An optional Microsoft DirectX 6.0 can be present in the computer. If not, the user is required to download the Microsoft DirectX 6.0 Driver software to gain support on the D3D feature required by the plug-in. This software is not a necessity. If present, the viewing of the Virtual City will be smoother.

For best performance, it is recommended to upgrade to the latest video display driver for your display card. Please refer to your displays card manufacturer's website or its customer support centre's telephone number.

Q. The Virtual City is very slow and takes a long time to play. Why?

There are several reasons for this problem:

Your display card may not support 3D acceleration.
There is also a possibility that your computer does not have enough computation power (System configuration).
Check if you have enable hardware acceleration. From the start menu, go to Control Panel, System and Performance. Under performance check graphics and see if hardware acceleration is enabled.

It depends on the system configuration, if your computer has a lot of computation power, download the larger screens sized Virtual City, if not, download the smaller Virtual City.

Q. Will I need to connect to the Internet to view the Virtual City?
The option rests with the user. If the computer has the best system requirements and a dedicated Internet connection, the Virtual city can be viewed online. If not, you have to download the Virtual City files. Once done, you do not need to connect to the Internet.
