I was thinking about putting XP on an old PC I need for something else, but for one I can't find a copy of it, and for another a friend reminded me that once there are no updates, people will increasingly attack the bugs found in the last patches.

Does this mean there is no way to play OMF BG anymore? (Except single player perhaps.)

Or is there a way to run a XP-simulation that is maintained and somewhat safe?

:p

Like seriously dude, it's still the top post in off-topic for the last month! ;)

Hehe, no worries, I know it was easy to miss, since the post is primary about something else. But Malf does explain how he got the game running there :)

Hrm. I know that thread. But "running" a game isn't the same as "playing" it. Twisted Evil

When I said "running" I didn't mean "I can get to the title screen", I meant "I did the stupid forced tutorial, played the first tourney". I even set up a dup VM, host a server and they were able to see each other... however it was on a local machine so who knows how much value that has. Regardless, you can still play the game despite a few graphical hiccups - mainly a few missing textures.
