The Games of the Wild Divine: Heartscapes will work with both the IomPE and the IomPro sensors on your Mac or Windows computer.
If you are using the IomPro sensors (white housing) you will need to use the IomDriver program. This is the same IomDriver program required for other Wild Divine software that use the IomPro sensors (green butterfly program icon – see below).
If needed, the IomDriver program can be downloaded FREE by clicking HERE.
IomPro Users – If using IomPro sensors please start the IomDriver BEFORE you launch The Games of the Wild Divine: Heartscapes to ensure proper connectivity with the IomPro sensors and the program.
IomPE Users – Please make sure you DO NOT have the IomDriver program running! It will interfere with the IomPE sensors and The Games of the Wild Divine: Heartscapes will not function properly.
NOTE: If you are using the IomPE sensors (green housing) with Heartscapes no additional driver software is required.
Windows – Windows Vista/Win7/Win8
Mac – OS X 10.7 or greater
Hardware Needed: INTEL Core Duo2 (or equivalent) or greater
4GB Main Memory, Graphics processor with 256 MB VRAM or SDRAM, 250 MB Free Disk Space, USB 2.0 Port (no USB Hub)
Here are some additional Knowledge Base articles that may help you with any sensor connection issues you may experience.
When you initially open The Games of the Wild Divine: Heartscapes you will be presented with a menu that allows you to set various options regarding game performance and display settings. These settings allow you to customize the gameplay experience based upon your preferences as well as your system performance capabilities.
You can change the quality of the screen resolution to maximize your display’s capability or for optimal viewing. Increased screen resolution (higher values) also cause an increase requirement in processing power on your CPU and/or Graphics processor. We suggest starting at the default value of 1024×576 and adjust according to your personal requirements.
This setting controls the density and quality of the graphics during gameplay. Increased quality of graphics will also cause an increase requirement in processing power on your CPU and/or Graphics processor. We suggest starting with the default value of “Good” and adjust according to your personal requirements. If you are using an older or less powerful computer we suggest using one of the settings with the least performance impact such as “Simple”, “Fast” or “Fastest”.
If this is checked/selected, then the program will run in windowed mode. This will allow you to see other programs on your desktop as well as Games of the Wild Divine: Heartscapes when using the application. If this is not checked/selected, Games of the Wild Divine: Heartscapes will run in full screen mode and no other programs will be seen or accessible when using the program.
“Only show this dialog if the option key is down” Checkbox
Once you find the settings that work best for you, check this box to save them as your gameplay preferences and the configuration will no longer appear at program startup.
