Windows XP? My game does not start.
Does the game run on Windows XP?`Could this be the issue that the game does not start?

Yep, that'll be it, next time read the system requirements.

That said, I heard that there's a hack of some kind that can get it working in XP, don't know where though.

Indeed sadly this game doesn't support XP.

It requires LoadFileById which is only found from Vista onward. Feel free to fully embrace the irony that is the use of DX9 tho :P

Thank you for your responses. Very kind. I upgrade the Windows, its time :-)

Give me a sec to find the link

Haha, upgrade is right.

Do any new games get released still compatible with XP?

What company would waste their time making games compatible for an out of date operating syste.

None do. But if its just directx9 then it should work easily with some tweaks.

I, myself, am sick of seeing this question by XP users. They really shouldn't be asking why the game doesn't work or isn't supported.

Agreed. Upgrading is not that expensive.

Yeah I think this is the bottom line - I held off for as long as I could - new releases were running flawlessly on my XP-powered system but then they started releasing things as "Win 7-only" (like BF3 - I actually purchased BF3 before seeing it required XP and it sat on the shelf until I saw that XCom too would require Win7).

It's a racket I tell ya'.

FWIW the upgrade process was far easier/less time-consuming than I thought it would be - mostly because I have 2 hard drives and all my Steam games are on the second drive. The only thing I had to re-install was Steam itself, all the games worked fine with no re-installs.
