I will get my game on this weekend, probably on Sunday. I’m not going to try anything too ambitious, mostly stuff that’s a few years old. I will report all of my findings. If you google Netbook Gaming you will find a ton of information about games running on netbooks with lists of what works and what does not. I think anything contributed here though should refer specifically to the NC10.November 14, 2008 at 2:19 pm #168467
yep, well said, I would like to keep this site nice and niche – simply because I am likely to only have one notebook for sometime to come lol!
I will be trying out unreal tournament 2004. I used to run ut2k3 on an AMD 900, and I think ut2k4 was pretty similar in requirements.
I might try out a couple of racing games, the free trackmania game springs to mind.November 16, 2008 at 12:00 am #168476sideeffectMember
World of Goo (2008) – runs perfectly, performance is good.
Grand Theft Auto Vice City – (1024 x 600) 20 – 25 fps (playable).
World of Warcraft (800 x 600) under 10 FPS in crowded cities 20 fps outside semi playable.
Unreal Tournament 1999 game of the year addition- (1024 x 600) highly playable.November 16, 2008 at 9:34 am #168468
GTA runs, cool! I have the original one somewhere – would be cool to play that on the train! I’m hopin later versions of UT will run – might give it a go later today! Is world of Goo good? It seems a fun kinda game.November 17, 2008 at 10:58 am #168475ashesfallMember
Quake Arena, Team Arena – Smooth as butter
Counterstrike Condition Zero – Playable but a bit slow
Unreal Tournament 3 Demo (the newest one) – Would not start
Worms Armageddon – Newest update crashes to desktop previous updates work fine.
Worms World Party – Fine
I’m very much looking forward to hearing about UT2004.

I installed ut2k4 yesterday! First off, it took along time to install, a good couple of hours. But given I was streaming a DVD over wifi from my desktop drive I dont think we should be too suprised!
Performance – it was “ok”. Not great, just OK. I will try playing a “proper” game with a mouse (it is unplayable with a trackpad lol!) tonight and will make a video clip of it! There is no way it will run well on “large” maps or heavy battles. But for small games it is ok.
I don’t think I will leave it on there but it’s interesting to see what the NC10 can do!November 18, 2008 at 2:23 am #168477sideeffectMember
Good news about ut2k4 i’ll have to try to find the install CD. World of Goo is just great and I find myself playing it the most on my netbook. It even runs in the netbooks low performance mode and still looks good.November 21, 2008 at 8:37 pm #168480dougpMember
So far I’ve tried:
Nox – Runs great, 800×600
Total Annihilation – Runs awesome
Wolfenstien: ET – Crashed trying to load game, will mess with it more when I get home.November 22, 2008 at 8:18 pm #168490savage82Member
I’ve got Football Manager 2009 Demo to work. It only seemed to work using the following:
“C:Program FilesSports InteractiveFootball Manager 2009 Demofm.exe” -small_screen -windowed
Going to go now and buy using steam!November 23, 2008 at 3:50 pm #168492techguyoneMember
I wonder if the inbuilt gfx card that causes issues
I’m not sure what a Atom cpu is comparable too, but I’ve played UT2004 on a AMD thunderbird with 512 meg RAM just fine, so hoping it will run good on a NC10
I think from the UT console you can type in statfps or something to get a framerate upNovember 23, 2008 at 5:05 pm #168494kahluafanMember
Got my NC10 on Thursday and have got around to installing a few games…
WoW – really quite laggy, so i agree with previous opinions – but haven’t test in high-performance mode, perhaps this could improve FTP slightly?
Football Manager 2008 – installed but wouldn’t run due to the resolution being lower than original – have taken savage82s advice and will try it using that command line – i fear i’ll be addicated again if it works smoothly!November 23, 2008 at 7:47 pm #168495dhendry02Member
Installed sim city 4 (currently running 1GB RAM) all works fine – perfect!November 23, 2008 at 8:12 pm #168491BritmanMember
Command & Conquer red alert 2 and yuri’s revenge both work on the NC10. Okay they are old but still great to play.November 24, 2008 at 10:50 am #168493quarrymanMember
Installed and working great on my NC10:
Red Alert 2 + Yuri’s revenge
Fallout 2 (using high resolution patch)
Commandos 2 (this game is perfect for the NC10)
Age of Empires 2
Age of Mythology
Football manager 2007 (there’s and option you can add to the EXE to play in 1024×600)
Might put Trackmania Sunrise on it later
Anyone know how long you would get out of the battery if playing a game? I’m guessing around 4 hours.
