It never ceases to amaze me when you people posts on these boards with no clue some times. Now, I'm not attacking anyone, I'm simply stating how it amazes me...the cluelessness of the people on this board.
Win98 cannot be supported...*Drum Roll*...because it is no longer supported by Microsoft. Look for this as a trend in nearly every game being released. Thief 3 was the first major title to do this. But wait...hold on...I'll use all caps for this, in hopes of somebody actually reading and getting a little education out of it.
THIEF 3 WAS NEVER SUPPORTED OUT OF THE BOX FOR WIN98...THAT DOESN'T MEAN IT WON'T RUN UNDER WIN98, BECAUSE IT WILL...AND IT RUNS BETTER UNDER WIN98 THAN XP, HMMM, IMAGINE THAT. I RAN THIEF 3 UNDER WIN98 AND NEVER HAD A HICCUP ONE, WITH BETTER FPS, AND NO GRAPHICAL OR SOUND ISSUES, WHILE OTHERS RAN WITH XP AS WELL WERE FINDING OUT HOW IT RAN...THEY ALSO BECAME CONVERTS.
SO, JUST BECAUSE THEY'RE SAYING IT WON'T RUN UNDER WIN98, I WOULDN'T HOLD MY BREATH ON THIS...SOMEBODY, JUST LIKE WHAT HAPPENED IN THE THIEF COMMUNITY, WILL FIND A WORKAROUND.
Also, for those of you dimwits who claim XP is the shiznit...you have no clue as to why a TRUE gamer would still be playing on Win98, or at least have a dual boot system with Win98 and XP. So, I'm going to edumacate you on this issue...XP won't allow you to run the classics, and Win98 is also your last OS connected to a DOS shell...sure, we now have emulators, but they run like crap.
