OFP and WinXP, good/bad/ugly?

    Hi folks

    Just had a hard drive crash this week(luckily I keep all work related stuff
    backed up, but unluckily, I don't back up games). Anyway I have (or rather,
    *had*) a win98 and winXP dual boot system and the drive that went was the
    win98 one, which has had an OFP install on it since...ohhh, three weeks
    after the game first came out, but obviously no more.

    I am thinking of reinstalling OFP so it runs in XP and doing away with
    win98, but sorta recall something about there been some performance issues
    or some such... anyone know what they are, and can you overcome them?

    Im running XP2000+ with a radeon 9800 pro, 1024Mb memory btw if that has any
    bearing on it

    It's close enough... you mentioned the ATI card.

    I don;t even know what game you're talking about so bear that in mind with
    the following comments:

    I would suggest that in pretty much all cases, that WinXP is gonna do you
    better then Win98... even when playing games.

    I upgraded from Win98 to Win2K some time ago and have not looked back - the
    memory management and general stability is an order of magnitude better.
    Let Win98 go with the hard drive...

    Is this OFP suppose to be OperationFlashpoint ? If yes, then there was NO
    problem running the game at 1152x864x32 on mobility radeon 9000 64mb, P4
    2,53GHz, 512 PC2100 and windowsXp pro, that's on a laptop. Game was VERY
    smooth and fluid.

    Altough your cpu is somewhat slow than mine was, that 9800pro should more
    than compensate.
