Hi there peepz!

I am currenltly using WinXp Rc1 Build 2505 beta, and I am having difficulties getting Vgs to run on this new Operating System. I set the compatibliy to pretend to be an Win95/Win98 system, but when the I run the program it quotes to make sure that I have the most updated version of the DirectX and Graphics Driverz (I have DirectX 8 and my most current Graphics drivers that come with WInXP). Please any help iz cool .. =)

Computer Specs:
733Mhz
128 Ram
Intergrated Graphics from my CUSL2 motherboard ( I know it Sux ...)
Hp-Cdwriter 9300

Cool, thankz guyz ... hope yea peepz can help .. =)

I don't think WinXP can run VGS. It's build around the Windows 2000/NT core. As far as I know, only Windows 9x systems can run VGS. That's why I double-boot with Win2K(networking) and WinME(gaming), the best of both worlds. :)

A duel boot would work, but it does consume quite a bit of harddrive space. By any chance, would there be any patches to fix these up. Too bad Vgs ain't being worked on by Connectix anymore .. =(

but thx for the respnse!

l8ter dudez!

You obviously don't know squat about Windows XP. It's based off of Win2K...that means that if, as you say, the whole family of OSes is beta, so is Win2K. I think you've contradicted yourself there.

You also apparently haven't used it...it's far, far better even than Windows 2K. It's much more stable, it has better compatability, and the new interface is really nice once you get used to it.

Yeah, not to mention the fact that XP disregards any privacy of the user. :)

Windows XP is just about as stable as any of the Windows NT operating systems, since it's based on the same core. It is NOT more stable than Windows 2000 (unless you're talking about gaming), and I don't know about the compatibility. It's still beta software, so how can it be more compatible than Windows 2K?

You're not running Windows XP, so how could you know whether it's less stable than Win2K? :)

Seriously, I have been running beta versions of Windows XP for a few months and it's incredibly stable. It is definitely more stable than Windows 2K, in my experience. It's not like they started this from scratch -- they took the existing Windows 2000 code and made improvements upon that. As long as you don't break things as you add features, stability doesn't decrease, nor does compatability. Trust me, it's quite stable, and I've had fewer problems getting programs to run on XP than I did on 2K.

As for the privacy argument...if you could give me specifics, I will answer those in turn, but delivering a general argument like that makes it sound like you're just repeating something someone else told you.

VGS on WinXP???

If i can't use my VooDoo3 200 on windows XP, there is no way it will play VGS at a reasonable speed if it even plays it at all!

VGS won't run on Windows XP, since it's based on the NT/2000 line. However, you should be able to use your Voodoo 3; just try the Windows 2000 drivers.

The last I heard the Windows 2000 drivers for the Voodoo 3 doesn't work with the latest build of Windows XP and probably won't work with the final release.

I've used Windows 2000 for quite some time now and it's very stable, as stable as any of the NT family of operating systems. Windows XP and Windows 2000 both use the same NT core. They both use similar NT technologies like HAL and RT Kernel Protection. I don't see how it could be more stable. What extra feature does XP have that gives it its extra stability over Windows 2000? You obviously had problems running Windows 2K but I haven't, and everyone I know who's used it have reported likewise.

Hey Billmaan! since you don't allow e-mails through the board, I guess I'll have to speak here.

I don't know about the privacy thingy but I sure do know that there is a VERY big security hole in XP. I don't want to discuss it here. If you wish, you can drop me a line. My e-mail's open to the board.
