Q: What are the minimum system requirements?

A: The PC version will require Windows XP or later, x86-compatible 800MHz processor, 512MB of RAM, 400MB Hard Drive space, DirectX-compatible 3D graphics with at least 64MB of addressable memory (such as an ATI Radeon 7200, NVIDIA GeForce 2, or Intel GMA 950). An internet connection is required to activate your installation.

The requirements are so low, we are even able to play Torchlight on the netbooks around the office!

Q: Is there a Torchlight demo?

Q: What kind of DRM does Torchlight use? How many times can I install Torchlight?

A: Because we wanted to have a demo version of the game that could be unlocked, some sort of mechanism was required to do so. Torchlight does require an internet connection to activate, but once you have activated, an internet connection is no longer required. We have provided each purchase with a key that is good for 10 activations – more than most users would ever need – because we don’t want the system to be a burden on our customers. We’ll happily increase the activation count if you run out. You can use them on any computers you want. If you use them all up, you can contact us at customerservice@runicgames.com to reset them for you. If you purchase Torchlight from one of our partners, you will need to contact them regarding their DRM policy as they do use their own DRM software.
