I just got my vision back a few days ago, and decided to try an OLD game I used to love and haven't played in years! Total Annihilation! LOL
Amazingly (and shows what a superb coder is capable of) it works flawlessly under XP! Considering it's a vintage 1997 game, that's darned good! And it plays in 1280 x 1024 too! Amazing considering most games by money hungry crooks, such as EA for eg, would only play up to 800 x 600 until only a few years ago (with a few exceptions)!
Anyway, I had fun playing with all the old mods & units I created for my nephews about a decade ago!
I just installed Age of Empires III and expansions. I remember I had trouble with that under XP a couple years ago. I'll see...
I have heard good things about Timeshift.
Whenever I get the money to build my new *Beast*, I'll have to give it a go!
