Just got mine installed and running yesterday.
I must say, I’m very pleased so far.
I run Win XP, 800mhz P3, 128m of RAM, GeForce 256 (32 MB).
I have 3 gamepads, all USB. Two are Saitek 10 button + rumble/analog and one is a Thrust Master 12 button.
I highly recommend a Saitek to anyone who does a lot of gaming on their computer. It’s cheap, durable, and works perfectly. It’s set up in a 6 button + 2 shoulder buttons configuration, so it’s nice for SF games, too. You can get it at a local computer hardware store. I got mine at GT Computers, but they should also sell them at Comp USA and Best Buy.
The installation wasn’t much of a hassle. The graphics are very crisp and run smoothly (appears to be running at 60fps without frame skipping). The sound seems to be arcade perfect. And it has all the features of the console version.
The controlls were incredibly easy to set up in the set-up menu and the options menu (in-game). It recognized my pads no problem.
The best feature is the ability to disable the BGM. I like the BGM and all, but it’s nice to disable it and run an MP3 in the background while you play.
Anyone else purchase their copy yet? Comments?
