I'm totally new to Unreal technology, though not new to game development.
I know the minimum system requirements to run the UDK are shown on a page on udk.com. However, as of personal experience, it is often possible to run games with less, even though it will not perform that well.
So basically my question is, will I be able to do anything with the following (rather old) setup:
ATI Mobility Radeon X700 (128 MB) only supports Shader Model 2. (I know they say it needs to support SM3, but hey, who knows. Maybe it will work)
I'm asking because currently I do not have access to a high bandwith and thus I don't want to download the whole thing just to discover it won't even load.
Maybe someone has some experience with an older Laptop.
Anyway, I'm planning to get a new one in a few months, but if it does work, it would allow me to already try this fantastic piece of technology.
If it helps: Because of those hardware limitations, I'm not planning on doing some graphics intense stuff. I just would like to play around with it. So what to question basically boils down to is:
Will the UDK run/start on my system or should I just forget about it?
Thanks in advance for any help you could give me.
