FireStarter Gold - WinXP/2K Only

GSC Game World sends news that FireStarter, their upcoming first-person shooter, is gold, though no release date for the game is specified. Here's the word, which also explains that the game will only work on two flavors of Windows:
We are glad to inform all the fans of tooth-grinding shooters that our arcade FPS FireStarter has gone gold. The game can be expected to hit the stores very soon. Due to technical peculiarities, the game does not run under OS Windows 95, 98 and ME, while supported only by Windows 2000 and XP.

On the other hand, running XP meant jumping through hoops to play some classic games

For classic DOS games, try Dosbox, a really smooth DOS emulator for newer PCs. Runs on several OS', including WELL on WinXP and Win2k (http://dosbox.sourceforge.net/)

For old Lucasarts adventure games, try ScummVM (http://scummvm.sourceforge.net/)

For newer protected mode DOS games, if Dosbox doesn't work for you, try running it native under VDMSound, a program which enables sound device emulation under the WinXP/2k VDM (commandline) (http://ntvdm.cjb.net/)

I run 2k pro and have found only 2 games that I can't run that I enjoyed in olden times. Ultima 7 part 1 and part 2.

And some clever fools are recreating the engine for newer systems. (http://exult.sourceforge.net/)
