Board » Technical Discussion » General System Spec - to aid SOL development

Page: 1 2 3 4 Next

Post annotated by RainbowChaser :
This thread was moved from the category General Discussion.
To improve the development process for the sailonline client application, it would be good to know a few things about the systems people use to run SOL on.
There are just a few categories of specifications we are inteerested in, so please fill it out and we can hopefully develop the client to better run on the higher end systems, while still being ok on the lower end ones.

****************************************
****************************************
To make life easier for all, I found a small free benchmark program that is available for both PC and Mac. Called NovaBench it will reduce things to a few key numbers, and you can simply cut and paste the system specs from the report page. It is approx 11Mb download and tests take about 1-2 minutes.
Please Post what you see on result page (you can just select all text, including overall result, and copy & paste - HDD info not necessary).
[This also allows better comparison between Win & Mac machines]
****************************************
****************************************

Please also indicate, whether your machine is a desktop or laptop, screen resolution and size, and a rough age in years (or < 1)

Also your Internet download speed:

Use the http://speedtest.net service for 'real-world' results, as often you are not achieving what your ISP claims as their connection speed.


Example NovaBench output:
NovaBench Score: 287

Sailonline’s 15th Birthday Balloon Race
Sailonline offers a huge variety of boats to sail in. One of the more unusual ones has got to be SOL's Balloon, which was polarized by past SOLmaster 76Trombones. Notably, the SOL Balloon will actually ‘sail’ in other directions other than straight downwind, although it will not 'sail' over land or beyond a 'beam reach'. Like in 2013 and 2018, we will be taking the Balloon across the Atlantic from St. John's and 'land' it in the sea off the Cliffs of Moher.
