System Requirements

Memory

Furby requires at least 2GB of RAM for the 64-bit versions and 1GB of RAM for the 32-bit version. For working with large projects we recommend at least 4GB.

Screen Resolution

Furby can be run with a minimum screen resolution of 1280x1024, however, a higher resolution is recommended.

Graphics Cards

Furby uses high-end computer graphics. While it works on a wide range of graphics cards and systems, dedicated graphics cards by NVidia or AMD are strongly recommended (for example, a graphics card better of the NVidia Geforce 8 series or better should be fine). Also make sure that you have the latest drivers installed. Download NVidia or AMD drivers.
