Hey all! I’m curious if anyone plays on a tablet or on a Microsoft surface? I’m kicking around getting a surface and was wondering if the game would run on it.

Thanks in advance if anyone has any knowledge.

I mean this runs on anything, but using some bluetooth keyboard gamepad is the way to go.

I've never gotten XI to run well on anything that doesn't have a dedicated graphics card. I suspect this is mostly a vram thing and that CPU emulating GPU type graphics either don't have enough memory, or the ram isn't fast enough when it pretends to be Vram.

The flip side of this is that you can run it on a single core sempron just fine as long as you have a good GPU.

This isn't to say it won't run if you knock the resolution down enough. On my 06 tablet I could get acceptable frame rates at 800x600, a modern day tablet could probably get acceptable frame rates around 1280x720. Don't expect to run at 1920x1080 or above without a gpu though.

Personal experience here - It runs more than fine on a Microsoft Surface Pro .. even without a dedicated graphics card. The key is to adjust the desktop resolution to 1920x1080 and make sure the scaling is set to 100% (it's usually higher due to the larger resolution). Runs really well considering but i wouldn't suggest it for any crazy intensive endgame HNM camping or graphics intensive scenarios.

The surface I run it on is a Surface Pro with 8gb of ram, i5 7300u @2.6ghz, with intel HD graphics 620.

Works great for fishing, crafting, and exping even. Just my 2 cents.
