I installed this game on my old laptop just to see if I could avoid using my desktop.
My laptop doesn’t meet the minimum requirements and I knew that (It’s an old Lenovo B570).
However, I was surprised that the game actually does run on it using the lowest settings. The actual combat runs fine and even looks decent.
The problem is that the menus are slow. If the menus were simplified to images instead of 3D models (or if you added an option for “simple menu backgrounds”), maybe you’d be able to expand the audience for the game a little.
(Edit: for reference, the battles run about 50fps and the menus run around 8fps. There’s no reason the menus should be more intensive than the actual game)
