Falling Leaf Studios is mad as hell and not going to take it anymore. What has caused them ire? Microsoft making Halo 2 and Shadowrun Vista-only. So they decided to make them XP-compatible.
Has anyone been able to try this yet? Is it buggy at all, because i would imagine frame rate and such may suffer for it to work.
it comes out in late July. Read the article before posting.
I was wondering how long it would take for something to make this happen...and DX10 is definitely going to start showing up on XP running machines...Even game developers are upset about how much of a sytem hog Vista is, and how their games are going to suffer on everything but the highest end machines... Halo 2 stutters on machines that can max out half life 2, Doom 3, and even FEAR...and halo 2 brings absolutely nothing new to the table over those games...MS is affectively killing the aspects of a PC that made it the lead OS and system for computer games...at this rate they are soon to announce the inability to upgrade a PC's hardware...
I fixed all my vista problems by upgrading memory.
...by going back to WinXP until I can afford a PC that can run Vista. :)
