GAMES INCOMPATIBLE WITH WINDOWS XP

windows-xpWe have many old games. Many old games have issues with the x64 version of XP while they do work fine with the x86 version. Issues are for the x86 version of XP.

If you need backwards compatibility its possible to dual boot.  The old MBR allows for 4 primary partitions or the BIOS can be used to select the desired disk to boot. Our Corsair chassis can use 4 hard disks so using multiple drives is another option. The BIOS on modern machines can select the desired hard disk to be the primary.

KNOWN ISSUES

  • Star Wars: Yoda Stories
  • Star Wars: X-Wing Collection

THIS LIST ASSUMES NO IT SKILLS SO ANY ERROR ARISES IT IS LISTED

One way to play some of them is to use Virtual PC and install Windows 98 SE in a VM and then run that full screen. This is the way we have tested games for a long time.

Windows 98 SE works well with Virtual PC 2004 running on Windows XP. Allocating 512 MB of memory will ensure all titles will be amply supplied.

An old machine with Windows 98 SE on it is another route. Many old machines are now in the recycle shops so they can be acquired at low cost.

Windows 98 SE supports DirectX 9 with the installer. So an old video card is supported for a dual boot solution.
