Please be aware that, for all Operating Systems, you *must* have a valid IWAD to run the engine!
Windows® Logo 2002 Microsoft® Windows®
Windows® Vista or higher (Windows® 10 is highly recommended)
(note: Windows XP support is currently deprecated in the latest devbuilds!)
  • 2 GHz Dual-Core CPU or faster (Quad-Core is strongly recommended for modern EDGE mods).
    • Your CPU must be SSE2 capable to run 3DGE 2.0 or higher! See Supported CPUS on Wikipedia.
      • If you use Windows 8 and above, your CPU is automatically SSE2 compatible.
  • 2GB RAM (1GB minimum. For Windows Vista and up, 8GB or more is strongly recommended).
  • Hardware accelerated 3D card with OpenGL drivers:
   * At least a Radeon HD or Geforce NV40 6 series class with 1GB of RAM or higher is recommended.
   * For OpenGL3 mode, you need a card that supports Shader Model 3.0 (recommended).
  • Windows Vista and higher (Windows 7/8/10 verified), 32-bit or 64-bit, is required.
    • Windows XP SP3 is the lowest Windows version to be supported (in versions prior to 2.1.0). Please be aware: 3DGE 2.1.0 and above no longer works with Windows 2000 and below. You can, however, build a version that supports those older operating systems yourself by compiling using the Windows Makefile with GCC, called makefile.xming. Windows binaries of 3DGE are normally compiled with Visual Studio 2019.
  • Visual Studio 2015/2017/2019 C++ Runtimes are required to be installed - x86 or x64, depending on your CPU type.
    • Windows XP SP3 users: compatibility will be dropped in 2.1.0-Final. We will no longer offer support.
  • For Linux:
   SDL (Simple DirectMedia Layer) version 2.0.10.
   glibc 2.
  • For MacOSX:
   TO-DO (WIP)
  • For Dreamcast:
   * Console manufactured before the year 2000 to play burned media.
   * Alternatively, an emulator.
   * VMU with (X) Free Blocks to save game data.
