I've had it installed on this laptop but the stuttering is more than I can deal with, so I guess the question should be, is there any way to get the game to run better?
Thanks.

The videocard is to blame. The nice aspects of a laptop/tablet/any-nice-compact-device are balanced by this 'cannot easily swap components' problem.

I can run it just fine with lowered settings at 80% in the game settings. I have a gateway 15inch with an i5 and internal graphics( no dedicated video card ) 4g ram. I think its the i5 that really allows it to run some what smooth. but all ive really done is set up a 4 fokker vs 2 Bristols. I hop on the turret ( cause I wont fly with keyboard keys, and I wont disconnect my set up on my desktop -cockpit) so I just auto pilot it and try to keep those fokkers off my tail >:D its pretty darn fun! of course battery life goes down from 5 hrs to 45 min, so keep the cord handy.

I run ROF on a laptop , but I am using a ASUS G73 JH model gaming Laptop . It has the ATI 5870 graphics card and 8 gig of ram .
I tried this on one that had the Intel chip set for video and it would not work. At least on mine it did not work .
As stated above you have to have a dedicated video card as it looks.

There ARE laptops that will run something as demanding as Rise of Flight…however, IMO most laptops do not have the "horsepower" to do so, mainly as their graphics aren't powerful enough.

Also, battery power gets limited when running ROF as Mr. Fox said.

0311, it looks to me as if you have the Arrandale i3-380M ( a decent dual core processor ), plenty of DDR3 RAM and onboard Intel HD graphics.

In order for this to work, you'd need to look into getting a dedicated graphics card for your machine from Dell. Looking at their website, I don't see the option to do this unless you have at least an i5 processor, so this may not be possible with your machine.

Good luck.

True. But IL-2 wasn't designed to run on a netbook. It does on my Acer Aspire 260. Not spectacularly well, but it runs… It seems to take a few years for laptop technology to catch up with cutting-edge gaming PC specs, but there doesn't seem to be any fundamental limitation - at least yet. In a few years, you'll probably be able to play RoF on a bus on the way to work with a cheap laptop - if you can find room for the joystick and rudder pedals, and don't mind the comments about the TrackIR hat. ;)

Yes, I have an Alienware M18x with i7 2920 OC'd to 3.5GHz, 16GB 1866 mem, 2xNvidia GTX580M 2GB in SLI. It runs ROF with all settings maxed in HD res, with very smooth framerates.

Asus Aspire 5750G, Intel i7-2630QM (2-2.9 GHz), Geforce GT 540M, 8GB DDR3

I wonder why people always blame notebooks for not being able to play ROF: Same as for Point=Blank, game runs smooth with max settings - and should so with this hardware. (Not to mention IL2, which is less demanding.)

Only fear is, that with every new eye-candy (patch) ROF might be unplayable at one time …

I think the original post is asking if ROF will run on his specs with no dedicated graphics card. ROF will run just fine on any gaming laptop, no doubt there.

I run it on my laptop, a 4GB RAM 2008 Macbook Pro with an Nvidia 8600 card (so, not meeting the minimum video requirements as published by 777).

That's still better in the video department than what you have, but I can recommend a few things: Turn down the graphics, pretty much all the way; set your sound sampling rate to mid range in your OS (I'm bootcamped onto XP - don't know how to do this in Win7); turn off anything running in the background, including search indexers etc.

Then see what happens. Start from the bottom and build; you can always run windowed mode in a lower resolution.

Good luck!

Cheers,
E

(I'm bootcamped onto XP )

Bootcamped? Not sure I understand that term… ;)

If it refers to the first operating system a person learns, then I guess I'm "bootcamped" on DOS 3.1, rapidly migrating to DOS 5.0 back in the day.

I will say, that I thought Windows 98 Second Edition was teh shiz, tho. :lol:

/me loves Win 7. :D

ROF stuttered along at single digit frame rates with my Dell Studio 1749: Intel Core i5 CPU M 520 @ 2.4 GHz, 8 GB RAM, 451 GB HD, Windows 7 Pro (64-bit)and Intel®HD Graphics. So I rigged up an external GPU using an EVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570. It connects to the laptop through the express card slot and a HDMI cable. For details on how to do this see: http://forum.noteboo....html#pros-cons" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://forum.noteboo...iew.com/gaming- … #pros-cons
I can play ROF now with everything set high except post effects and landscape (I guess this is a CPU limitation). Anyway it looks great and I'm having a blast.

Holy Smokes, mate!

I think I might do this on my 1st generation Macbook Pro with a 560ti - looking into it and will report back.

I like to get the most out of my equipment and enjoy tinkering so the eGPU idea naturally appealed to me. Total cost of the upgrade was $564.98 (GPU, $334.99; 760 watt power supply, $144.99; express card board, $85.00). I already had an old desktop tower which I stripped and used to house the eGPU components. One other thing worth mentioning, this setup is designed to work with an external monitor. Apparently there is a way to get it to work with the internal laptop screen but I didn't see the point to that. Connected to the eGPU the laptop is stuck to your desk anyway so why not go whole hog. I got a nice ASUS 23" LCD monitor which really improves the game.

I ran RoF on a l;aptop that was below the minmum requirements for over a year, in that time Itried everything I could to bring the fps up and the graphics down. Some suggestions:

1. drop graphics absolutely as far as they can go.
2. Run as little in the background as you can.
3. Go into your graphics card options, unsure you have them with an inbuilt but give it a shot, and put everything as low as you can. The game will be as ugly as anything but it should run decently, but your computer will slow down a lot over time. Make sure you bring plenty of patience.

Of course it's possible. But just incredibly hard.
I tried it once on my little Acer, very unplayable for me ;)

Toshiba Satellite L650-11E (2.13GHz, 4Gb ram ATI 5145 512Mb)here and i can run on med settings.
@Stugbit, sure it's possible to play with a laptop´s keyboard but as Fifi says, it's very hard if you want a decent experience!

I recently buy Acer Predator Helios 300 Gaming Laptop, Intel i7-10750H, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 6GB for ROF and haven't any issue.
