    Hi,
    Is Quake2 available for XP? Recently I tried to install a demo version but received an error saying it can't run 16-bit apps. If yes, please let me know the details. My comp details are :

    Pentium II 233 MMx
    128MB Ram
    Sis 6326 4MB AGP
    Win XP Professional 2000

    um, i haven't had any problems with q2 or q3a. the only games that don't work for me are tribes 2, rollecoaster tycoon corckscrew follies, and sim coaster.

    You should be able to even install QUAKE on XP....I did....

    Had to go through a console command to do it, since Quake "doesn't install on NT systems" or something like that. So if I can get QUAKE to install....Q2 shouldn't be too difficult.....actually got that one working too, though for SOME stupid freakin reason.....it (and all its expansion packs) keep forgetting my SAVED GAMES....Doh !!)
