Does anyone know if this game would run on the Lenovo x200s:
Also, and I apologise in advance because I’m sure it will have been asked before, but does anyone know if there are any plans to port this to other platforms, maybe mobile platforms like Android or iOS, or even Xbox 360 Indie or similar?
It has windows, so… yeah? It could run a bit slow if you got heavy FUN going on but oh well
It has better CPU than the toaster I’m currently playing on.
Will slow down if you display a lot of stuff, burn houses down or get a horde of creatures nearby, but generally should be fine.
Thanks, looks like I’ll be getting one of those then.
Android is a definite possibility, it runs but the project file adjustments to build it never made it into mainline and need to be re-merged.
No plans for iOS or XBox compat, hate em both, but if someone else does it they can feel free.
P.S. NO STEAM.
Good to know, I’ll keep an eye out (and my hopes up) for an Android version!
Can I follow it by following the “Android port (on hold)” thread?

It seems that for £20 more I could get an x200s and buy an extra 2GB RAM, or an x200 with 4GB RAM already installed. Would 4GB be a big difference from 2GB do you think? Or would the processor still limit the performance?
I think it’s more about processor or maybe even hard drive operations.
DDA uses about 700 mb of RAM. At least windows’ process manager shows that much after playing for a while. 4 gb ram would probably allow some more extensive caching, but I can’t think of a good example where this would matter.
If you have other reasons to get that extra RAM, then do it, because more RAM is always more convenient and makes running multiple applications much less annoying. £20 is like, 2 small pizzas worth of money.
It probably won’t affect performance in DDA, though.
Yeah I’ll go for the extra RAM.
If the processor is a factor, then maybe the x200 would be the better option, because it has a 4.8gHz processor as opposed to the 3.2gHz of the x200s. Would that provide a noticeable difference performance-wise do you think?
I hear that there could be heat issues with the x200 processor anyway, so x200s it is.
