BTW, here is my gallery: http://scratch.mit.edu/galleries/view/33922 </li></ul><ul><li>ANSWER- It has updated, but your internet browser probably has the old picture saved. You just need to clear your cache ^^ If you don't know how to do it read the instructions here: http://kb.iu.edu/data/ahic.html </li></ul>
  8. 8. FAQ #2 <ul><li>QUSTION- What are the system requirements for Scratch? </li></ul><ul><li>ANSWER- Here are the system requirements for Scratch 1.3: Display:     1024 x 768 or larger, thousands or millions of colors (16-bit color or greater) OS:     Windows 2000 or later (Win 98 for Scratch 1.2.1)     Mac OS X 10.4 or later (Mac OS X 10.3 for Scratch 1.2.1) Disk:     at least 120 megabytes of free space to install Scratch (see note below) The CPU speed and memory requirements have soft limits. Most computers have enough memory to run Scratch. Older computers may run Scratch slowly, but it will run. To take advantage of sound ouput and input, you need speakers (or headphones) and a microphone. Many laptops have speakers and microphones built in. Note: Scratch comes with a large media library and a collection of Sample projects. If you have very limited disk space, you can delete the &quot;Media&quot; and &quot;Projects&quot; folders from the Scratch folder. </li></ul><ul><li>Last edited by johnm (2008-10-29 23:07:18) </li></ul>
