Most important: Will this game run on a normal ST
without E or FALCON?
Technically speaking: yes. It is designed not to crash on a pure ST. But it will present itself with major drawbacks:
First and upmost: the frame rate! The techniques in use, makes the game so much quicker on the STe. There is a option in the setup to reduce the quality of the street rendering. But even so, the framerate is hardly acceptable.
DMA Sound sample playback is missing – ST does not support it.
And the classic ST was mostly equipped with 1MB Ram. This is to less to run the game in its full beauty. But there is a memory setup option to limit the memory usage – with the result of lots of stuff missing or looking less good.
But technically speaking: yes… it should run…. Ääähhhh… lets call it “walk”.
