My Laptop should be able to handle this.
OS: Windows 7 32-bit
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU P8400 @ 2.26GHz
RAM:4.00GB (2.99 "Usable")
Graphics:ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3400 Series (256MB)
OS:Windows XP / Vista / Windows 7
Processor: 3 GHz Pentium 4 or equivalent
Memory: 1GB RAM
Graphics: 256MB DirectX 8.1-compliant video card
DirectX®: Version 9.0c or better
Hard Drive: 100MB space free
Sound: DirectX 8.1 sound device
Now, when I play the game, it runs at a low frame rate, and lowering the settings to the lowest possible and 800x600 resolution only gets me what looks like, maybe 20 frames per seconds at best. Default settings get me what seems like 12, and max settings, about 6.
But looking at the requirements, I would think running this at a good frame rate, possibly even at full settings, should not be so much of an issue. Anyone else getting generally poor performance on a machine that meets recomendations?

Pretty much everyone.
With bony hands I hold my partner
On soulless feet we cross the floor
The music stops as if to answer
An empty knocking at the door
It seems his skin was sweet as mango
When last I held him to my breast
But now we dance this grim fandango
And will four years before we rest.

Unfortunately the Radeon 3400 is a very low-end GPU (hey at least it's not an Intel GPU!), and coupled with a laptop means it will be the low power "mobile" version, so most modern games will only be playable on the very lowest settings at best. However, it is reasonable to assume that a simple poker game (putting aside the awesomeness of this one!) should run on pretty much any hardware that came out in the last 5 years or so, but this one apparently seems to have unusually high GPU requirements somewhat akin to Crysis... If you look in THIS very useful thread, it seems only the medium to high end GPU's from the last couple of years can run this game smoothly, which means most laptop users are SOL
If your system meets the min requirements you should expect it to be playable on the lowest settings, so this needs to be fixed...
