System Requirements

PC

To install and run Condor you will need

  • Windows 7, 8 or 10
  • Intel i3, i5, i7 CPU or equivalent.
  • 5.5 GB of free space on hard drive or SSD
  • A dedicated graphics card with 1 GB memory. The graphics card should have benchmark (www.videocardbenchmark.net) result of 1000 minimum, 4000 is very good and 8000 perfect.
    (Integrated graphics cards and cards with benchmark result below 1000 are usable, but with severely reduced graphics settings)
  • Internet connection required for activation

Virtual Reality

Condor 2 supports the Oculus Rift VR headset, and using Revive also the HTC Vive headset. Both of these have their own requirements, which can be checked for your system using tools on the Oculus and Vive websites.

Oculus:  https://www.oculus.com/

Vive:  https://www.vive.com

Revive:  https://github.com/LibreVR/Revive

Your system must meet our requirements above, and the requirements of Condor stated here.

Apple Mac

To install and run Condor you will need

  • Windows 7, 8 or 10 running in Bootcamp*
  • Intel i3, i5, i7 CPU or equivalent.
  • 5.5 GB of free space on hard drive or SSD
  • A dedicated graphics card with 1 GB memory. The graphics card should have benchmark (www.videocardbenchmark.net) result of 1000 minimum, 4000 is very good and 8000 perfect.
  • Internet connection required for activation
  • (Integrated graphics cards and cards with benchmark result below 1000 are usable, but with severely reduced graphics settings)
* Note: Our understanding is that Directx11 uses direct GPU register access and this is not possible under emulators or virtual machines. The only way is Bootcamp. In future the deevlopers of solutions such as Virtual box, or Wine, etc., may find a way round this. If you have success with different solutions on Mac, please let us know by putting in a support form so we can pass the information on to other users.

Controls

To be able to fly in Condor, you do not need a joystick. The glider can be controlled using mouse or keyboard. However we do strongly suggest that you should use at least a joystick with a twist rudder support. For the ultimate experience we recommend using rudder pedals and a joystick with force feedback.
Since Condor supports multiple input devices, you can create real analogous controls for all glider controls.
