Shadowrun in XP? The wait is over, because **** already has the remedy!
Yes, you read right. This game will also function in Windows XP (following the
installation procedure below).
This release will work with bot matches and lan mp. If you want to play
online, buy the game!

5. If you want the XP compatability, copy the files from the xp/ subdir to
your installationfolder.

When did it become OK to talk about illegal software downloads here?

Recently we've had some people posting on released/leaked pirated software (warez). Anyone found posting links/pictures (attachments, or [img] tags) and asking where to obtain warez will be sent a warning, and their post will be deleted. This doesn't apply to driver leaks. However, you can post links to pictures ONLY if that particular site does not contain any information on how to obtain the pirated software, or does not talk about it in detail. Under NO circumstances may you troubleshoot the users who requests help for unreleased/leaked software/patches. They as well as you will be warned. NO EXCEPTIONS. There is no second warning, because you will get banned from accessing this forum.

This forum is not for requesting info on any kind of illegal software/patches, so please think twice before you post.

Huh, digging around on the net I've got Halo 2 running on XP, logged into Live and all, but can only play the first three sections before it tells me I must activate the game. I did put my key code in when I first logged into my Live account, but obviously that isn't enough and I"m at a loss as to find information on how to fully activate the game on XP if it can be done at all.


I'm also curious about getting Shadowrun working on XP. I got both games for $40 total though a deal at Circuit City but I'm waiting for my copy of Vista to show up on Monday. I was just going to wait until then instead of messing with all this, but now that I hear they might run better on XP I figure I may well be better playing them that way regardless.

Can you go online and play on servers once you are activated? Not going to bother activating if I can't [for the time being]...
