The Souptoys Toybox requires
Screen Resolution and Color Depth
Souptoys requires you to be running in at least 16-bit color. The toys
may not display properly on your desktop if you are running in 256
Colors. If you are running in 256 Colors, you should switch to 16-bit
color or better.
- Windows 2000, Windows XP or Vista. At present it will not work on Mac OS/X, but we hope to support it in the near future.
- IBM PC or 100% compatible computer
- Pentium III 600 MHz or better processor
- At least
128 megabytes of RAM.
- Sound: you must have a sound card installed in order to hear the toys.
- Video: your desktop resolution should be set to 16-bit or 32-bit color mode
(256 Colors will display the toys incorrectly).
- Controls: a keyboard and a 100% Microsoft compatible mouse are
required. A mouse wheel is supported but not required. Also if you have a touch screen you should try it on that. It's a lot of fun.
The Souptoys Toybox looks great in a multiple screen environment and
when doing so the Toybox will use your primary screen to operate on. At
present there are some limitations to how the toys work on multiple
screens especially when they are side by side, but a setup we have
found fun to use is having the secondary monitor displayed on top of the
My Toys Run Slowly
The most likely cause for this is that you have too many toys open...
Clean your room!
The physics engine we use, while mind-bogglingly brilliant and
wonderful, IS bound by the power of the modern day PC. So, while our
hardworking boffin is chained to his desk every day optimizing the
code, there's only so much a hunk of refined sand and wires can do.
There are some things we know that can help. If you go into the
Settings tab of your Display properties and select the 'Advanced'
button, another window pops up with its own array of fun. If you go
into the one marked 'Troubleshooting' (how appropriate!) and slide the
'Hardware Acceleration' slider as low as it will go, we've found this
can help speed up the toys on a variety of systems.
Although we have spent a long time ironing out any bugs in the system
there is a chance you may turn up one that we missed. If you should
come across a bug in Souptoys, please report it to email@example.com
You should also make sure you've always got the latest version of the
program (Upgrades are free!) as this will have all the newest and
greatest tricks in it to make your toys run better! To get the latest
upgrade visit www.souptoys.com
