System requirements

Minimum (measured)

  • CPU: 1.6GHz SSE2 compatible or higher... Intel Pentium4/Atom/Core/Xeon or AMD Athlon64/Sempron/Opteron/Phenom/FX.
  • RAM: At least 1GByte.
  • HDD: ~100MByte, size can grow.
  • GPU: Any dedicated video card/onboard chip[1] from AMD/nVidia/Intel/... that supports at least OpenGL 1.0 with 32MByte VRAM or higher.
  • SND: The game uses OpenAL over SFML, this means if you can generally hear sound on your computer, then it should work with this game too.
  • NET: At least an 56k modem, ISDN would already be good enough to play. For updating the game we recomment at least 1MBit.
  • OS: Windows[2] (XP[3], Vista SP2, 7 SP1, 8.1, 10)


  • [1] Make sure you have correct drivers installed, especially if you are using laptop or onboard graphics from Intel. Here are some links: AMD/ATi, nVidia, Intel
  • [2] For all Windows versions you need the following "Visual C++ Redistributable" 32bit (x86) to be installed:    Hint: Make sure you really install the 32bit (x86) version of them, because the Client is still 32bit (x86). This also counts when you run a 64bit (x64) system!
  • [3] For Windows XP you may get issues, because it's no longer supported and updated by Microsoft. You can try the following:
    • Make sure you have the latest possible drivers and SDK's like "VC Redistributable" installed.
    • We now use libcurl, this means you have to replace a dll file. Download this package:
    • Inside that package copy all .dll files inside bin/ out to the game installation directory with overwriting libcurl.dll (where your HSRClient.exe) is.
    • If it still wont work and it just says "Program stopped working" without any error codes or technical details, it's hard to figure out the reason for this.
    • As long it shows error codes or technical details we can try to help you getting it running on Windows XP.
