Default Minimum system requirements

How "hard" are the minimum system requirements for the Thunder Pack?

I bought it with the expectation of someday getting a faster system, but I notice that the only requirement my current system can't meet is the 400mHz. Can the games still run on a significantly slower CPU? (I have a Pentium II/233.)

It will run, but it might be a little slower (screen updates, etc, since no API's like DirectX are used). Should run ok though. Those requirements are basically for optimum gameplay.

Also: The demos use 99% of the same technical code as the full Versions, so if the demos run ok, you'll be fine.

Well, I decided to experiment a bit while I was waiting for an answer. Interstellar Trader definitely has no problems on a slow system.

[Edit] Overlord runs fine, too.
