I’m planning to buy a new pc (this wednesday,a special promotion), and I wonder if it could handle the GLSL materials in BGE,
since it is saying the following requirements on the blender site:
This implementation takes advantage of the OpenGL Shading Language (GLSL), and requires a graphics card and drivers that support it. The game engine already supported such GLSL shaders, though they had to be manually written. The following cards typically support it, though the earlier ones have restrictions on the complexity of materials and the number of lights. Be sure to install the latest graphics card drivers as they might fix bugs and improve performance.
- ATI Radeon 9x00, Xx00, X1x00, HD2x00 and HD3x00 series and newer.
- NVidia Geforce FX, 6x00, 7x00, 8x00, 9x00 and GTX 2x0 and newer.
I wonder if when running blender with the following system I would be able to run the GLSL materials, here it is: (and could you guys recommend me this pc, it’s only 599€)
