2 GHz dual core processor.
4 GiB RAM (system memory)
25 GB of hard drive space (or USB stick, memory card or external drive but see LiveCD for an alternative approach)

Either a CD/DVD drive or a USB port for the installer media.

Re: can i get this game running on ubuntu 20.04

for some reason they say that wine is not a program to emulate i dont know why.


i think that you are asking for this:

wine program system requirements:

Intel or AMD processor 32 or 64-bit; 2GHz or faster processor

4GB or more of RAM (8GB recommended)

10 GB or more of available hard-disk space

Well, we have some players who use this OS and program. If they see this topic, they could show you how to.

Another option is look for tutorials in youtube.

Based on my experience of my previous Acer Aspire 4730Z laptop with an upgraded Intel Core 2 Duo T9500 CPU (was Intel Pentium Dual core T3200) and 4GB DDR2-667, it was sluggish for 20.04 especially for gaming since it relies on Intel GMA iGPU which is integrated to the motherboard. Plus of how heavy the system requirements Focal Fossa was than the previous Ubuntu OS versions like 12.04.

If you still want to try BF1942 then make sure not to set the in-game resolution higher than 800x600 to get at least 40~60fps at best, and if possible to get the previous version of Ubuntu like 16.04 (not recommended as it already reached EOL last April) since it still had a 32-bit ISO installer.

Btw, what's the exact model of your Intel C2D mobile CPU? And Ubuntu 20.04 is a Long-Term Support (LTS) version.

Re: can i get this game running on ubuntu 20.04

You can upgrade that to Core 2 Duo P9600 since your laptop had a socketed mobile PGA CPU, just make sure that you have updated your laptop's BIOS first.

i think that you need more RAM to run Wine.
