I bought a physical copy of the game and it says on the back that the game will run in Windows XP, but I'm having numerous problems running it. I'm just curious if any other players out there are using XP and if they're able to run the game ok.

It will run on XP but NOT on the 64-bit version of XP.

It runs on it, but it is NOT supported. Even Microsoft have stopped supporting the OS. Remember, it is 10 years old.

do you know how to check if you're running 32 bit or 64 bit xp? I'm 90% certain i'm 32 bit but i want to know for sure.

Start > right click my computer > properties.

It should tell you on the next window that opens up.

Or you can just go to start > run > dxdiag

That will tell you as well.

Greetings awsomeholderman,

Please provide us with a DXDiag report as well as a brief description of the issue you are experiencing. We will investigate the issue for you.

To get your DXDiag report, follow these instructions:
  1. Press the [Windows] Key + [R] at the same time. (The [Windows] key is the key with the Windows icon on it)
  2. Type in ‘DxDiag’ and press ‘OK’.
  3. This will open the DirectX Diagnostic Tool box.
  4. At the bottom of the box is a ‘Save All information’ button. Press it.
  5. This will open a ‘Save As’ box. Please ensure the text file is named ‘DxDiag’.
  6. Save this to your desktop.
  7. Open the saved file, hit Ctrl+A (select all), and then Ctrl+C (copy).
  8. Paste that information at the bottom of your post. Please use code or spoiler tags.
    If you don’t use these then your DXDiag will fill up the page making it hard to navigate your thread.
Thank you.
