I'v been looking at screenshots on Neowin.net, that have a screen on there desktop that is called "Windows XP Game Adviser" which tests your system to see if its good enough for a game. Do any of you know what this is all about, and how I can get ahold of it??

Thanks.

It just analyses your systems hardware (specs) and OS, and then gives you a list of the latest games that will work on your machine.

Check Microsoft's gaming site.

the funny thing is, every game I try, it says I have minimal requirments. Which for some games, I know I have max..weird

MS is always weird. No matter what your system specs are, MS usually tells differently.
Ha! They're in league with the hardware manufacturers to make you buy better and more expensive hardware!

Actually, M$ says it cannot determine what I have so they cannot see if I have the necessary requirements. Hmm.

I found this handy app a long time ago, but it could be useful for those who don't know how to find out their system specs. What it will do is give a detailed rundown on everything on your system.

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
