System Tweaking Tips and Advice

  • If you are running Windows XP SP2 with a multi-core CPU, it is advised you install this MS hotfix.
    Installing this hotfix ensures Supreme Commander uses all available CPU cores.
  • Turn off Shadows! Yes, they look pretty, but they 1/2 the framerate, even when on the Low setting.
  • Large games that cause SC to use >1.5GB will crash due to a bug. To fix this problem, see here.
  • Make sure that Anisotropic and Antialiasing settings in the nVidia control panel are set to "Application-controlled".
    Not doing so can cause Supreme Commander to crash.

Supreme Commander System Requirements


  • Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2, Vista
  • 1.8 GHz processor
  • 512 MB RAM
  • 8GB available hard drive space
  • 128MB video RAM or greater, with DirectX 9 Vertex Shader/Pixel Shader 2.0 support
  • Sound card, speakers or headphones
  • 56.6 Kbps Internet connection required


  • 3.0 GHz Intel or equivalent AMD processor or better
  • 1GB RAM or better
  • 8GB available hard drive space
  • 256 MB Video RAM, with DirectX 9 Vertex Shader/Pixel Shader 2.0 support
    • (Nvidia 6800 or better, ATI X800 XL, X 1300 or better)
