This really heartening to hear because this is exaclty what I've been thinking of doing for a long time now. If this is true, it sure would make my life easier. And I would feel alot better about ditching the old standby, '98!
XP runs like 99% of all games...it has problems with very old 98 or 95 games, and obviously dos games.
If the game is 1998+ it probably works on XP.
Where does it say XP has problems running games? XP is what dev's are looking at most when developing their games...
