Shadows of the Empire - Windows XP
 
Looking to purchase this game on eBay or something. Anything I should know about getting this to run on a P4 Windows XP machine ? Backwards compatibility or a patch or something ? Not much out on the web about this game. Thanks.

I think it works fine on XP.

Thanks. Anyone else ?

#1 it will run too fast
#2 it uses an old school fog system that has been dropped from 3D cards for many years now. Fog will be missing and that will make it look quite off.

I actually built a PC that runs Win98 and has a Voodoo5. I use it to run games from before 2000. You need a CPU around the speed of a Pentium II 300 MHz or the game runs too fast. It actually speeds up and slows down depending on what you're looking at (how complex the scene is).

I'd say you could run the N64 version in an emulator but the game is kinda quirky in emulators.

Well I just ordered it, we'll see how it goes.

I used to run DF2 on Windows XP, so I don't see why Shadows of the Empire wouldn't work. I know that some Lucasarts games have Windows XP patches that are available on the official site.
