System Requirements

Operating system: Microsoft Windows, however, people have manged to run it under Wine on Linux.

Number format: Aurora is a hobby project coded for use on a UK computer. Therefore, you will need to change your decimal separator to a period, rather than a comma, for optimum performance. Otherwise you will suffer invalid string errors.

Minimum resolution: The minimum resolution required is 1440x900. A higher resolution or multiple monitors will allow you to see more windows at once. There exist some utilities and approved mods that allow you to play the game with a smaller screen.
