Windows XP?
Hi, I recently found this game through a friend. I think it looks very fun, however, I have one question. For the requirements, it says Vista or 7, however I am using XP. Does this mean I will not be able to play it? If so, will there be XP support in the future? thanks.

The XP is kinda almost 10 year old now mate how bout trying 7?

I've tried 7, but I prefer XP over it.

your choice, I switched to 7 from xp some time ago and tbh I do heard that Dota2 does support xp though they do recommend 7 for it.

I know DOTA 2 does, I play it on here. What I am asking is about on TSE.

TSE runs on the Bitsquid engine - which doesn't run on XP :(

You answered your own question...
XP was the best OS of its day, time to hand over the title to Windows 7 :)

Well we switched from DOS to Win 95, then to Win 98, then to XP there is no diffrence in switching to 7 your loss in fact. Plus lots of new games/ sowftwares wont support 7
O yea and we did said for DOS that is best OS ever and same for 95 and 98 and XP (see pattern here?)
You will only lose in compatibily cause less companies will actualy make win XP compatible software and will focus on 7 or bigger ones

Well unfortunately dont expect new games to run on it.
Games makers arent going to be optimizing games for an operating system thats well long in the tooth.

Hi @Jesse! I tested this game (free weekend) on my XP SP3 and it didn't worked. No errors or sounds, just not launched.
Many games not work on the 7 and 8 Windows, or with errors and lags. But nowdays, most of developers prefer Vista and higher because of nice PhysX and DirectX (10, 11) effects that aren't supported by XP. But don't worry since 2004 I didn't found a really good game, just few. I'm not saying "The Showdown Effect" is a bad game, I didn't tried it. I will try it on Ubuntu Wine or PlayOnLinux, maybe will work or someday I'll buy this "number" 7 :)
