Anyone know if Armada I would work on XP?

I know that Armada 1 had horrible problems with Window 2000 Professional the memory leak and other problems even with the patch.

Though running such an old game on a 2.66 GHz Pentium 4 with 512MB would scream in my opinion if you could get it to work.

Thanks all for any suggestions.

it *should* be no problem as i already played it on wxp several times. i just have a problem with the sound files repeating themselves and are totally messed up but many people don't have that problem. it also worked for me without problems except the sound problems on windows 2000

That XP compatibility mode doesn't work for anything I've tried it on but A1 will run on XP with no problems as you found.

Ya. XP should be fine. My Armada II is coming in the mail as we speak, and on the site I ordered it on, it said win 98/200/ME/XP. It should be fine. :)
