Not sure who to direct this to, but it may be a nice idea to have a game/XP compatibility section at this site. Many games do not specify XP compatibility, but work fine; others, well, you know.

There could be a list of the more popular games and people could post their experience with a game. There could be a few categories ("runs ok", "has some problems", "crashes", etc) people could choose from.

There has been a few games I would like to get, but don't want to waste money on something that I am unsure would work.

Anyway, just an idea :D

Btw, one question about Return to Castle Wolfenstein.

Can the retail version (not the multiplayer test) run in D3D or is it only OpenGL?

Rogue Spear & Rainbow Six,

I built my first non intel chipset below and loaded XP only to find that more than half of the games we have would not run or would lock up quickly freezing the system.
I thought ok and reformatted and loaded windows 2K but the same problem so did the same thing again with 98SE - yes you guessed it same problems.
Many hours of trawling the web led me to believe that the problem lies with the combination of Via chipset and nvidia drivers so work on this I did.
After many more hours i found that many games would play with the default XP drivers (12.40-?) but any versions of the XP detonator drivers caused lock ups. This made me very angry as I thought I had bought the best Mobo and graphics card setup both from the point of view of quality and speed yet here I was only able to operate at 60% of the basic speeds available with Nvidias XP drivers.
Eventually after many more hours resting settings I discovered the fix for my system allbeit not the best possible.
With all bios settings set to max speed I simply set the AGP throughput to 2X rather than the default auto or 4, now every single game runs flawlessly including some old ones in 98 compatability mode.
OK i have a working games system but should I really have to run a state of the art PC in 2x agp mode.

By the way all detonator XP drivers work and i can O/c to almost ti-500 speeds with my geforce3.

Games running.

RTCW, AVP-2, Sims, black & White, Giants, Undying, Theif-2, Deus Ex.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
