    For those of you who don't know, RPGMaker XP is an RPG development tool for people who aren't programmers. This is one of my favorite programs ever (even though I know how to program games in C++/Objective-C, this is so much faster for casual stuff). Anyway, its website says it requires a P3 800MHz and 128MB of RAM and runs on 98, 2000, and XP. As far as I can tell, the editor itself is relatively not CPU-bound (when doing stuff with it on my P4 2.26GHz, it uses maxium 14% of CPU, normally around 3-7%). It is mainly playing the actual games that suck CPU (games usually take up around 20-40% of my P4). Will the editor program run smoothly on VPC 7 on my PowerBook G4 1.5GHz? I really don't care of the games themselves are slow since I would just be using it to work on my games on the go, and not really have the need to test it too much (and if I do, it's OK if it's slow). Thanks, xgsrpg

    I wish there was some kind of chart that could tell you approximately what VPC 7 can run so there isn't like a gazillion of these sorts of posts...

    Umm.... so does that mean it won't work at all or.......
    And will using Windows 98 instead of XP make things go faster?
