I'd like to know what OS everyone is using (especially you, players).
We'll use this information to see what OS we need to support in the future.
E.g. I heard some people still use XP but scripts development will not support it in the future.
(If there are a lot of XP users, and they demand it, we might launch a legacy game version of Reborn.)

I myself am on Windows 7 and still prefer it over the newer ones.

What do you use? :)

Currently at Win10, but I'm seriously considering rolling back to Win7.

What do you mean by OS support? We're talking about an engine that was designed to run even on Windows 95, so what weird stuff are you going to recode to break compatibility with XP? :eek:

Legacy version of Reborn

What? That's news to me.

 

 

Why break XP?

5.x relies on libraries and compilers provided by Visual Studio 2013. These items do not support XP, and to add support for XP, it would mean a sharp reduction in performance and feature loss. Remember that 3.x broke compatibility with 98, and 4.x broke compatibility with 2000, so this isn't the first time this has ever happened.

Why change VS to a new version when the W3D engine won't receive any significant/substantial changes? Hell, everyone still uses vanilla Renegade skeletons, base models and animations for infantry and the most unique thing that was made in all of W3D's history was the secondary function (Q) key.

Actually, it will be receiving significant changes. The exact changes I am not allowed to disclose yet, but they involve our graphics coders.

Combination of Windows 10 and Arch Linux.

WinArch 10. :p

 

Well....At home I use 8.1 x64 still because I have not put the time into hunting up all the installers for the gajillion programs i have installed. At work I use 10 pro x64, 7 pro x64, and XP, depending on what needs doing....and though it probably doesn't matter for this thread, a good bit of windows server, various editions.

If you read the question, it clearly asks the OS of the computer you play w3d games with :)

I have a desktop and laptop that has Windows 10 installed on each. I also have an old HP desktop from 2005 with XP installed but I only ever have to use that if my dad wants to make a mix CD of various vinyl audio rips.

Windows 8.1, but soon to be Windows 10.

 

Windows 7 (although to be honest, I wish I kept Vista), soon to be Windows 10.

You'll get past the initial "wow" very soon, trust me. As far as old games go, don't upgrade until Win7 and Win8.1 lose support (which is still a relatively long way).

Lies and slander. DT make it compatible with ReactOS pls.

 

Having to make software compatible with ReactOS would kind of defeat the whole idea of ReactOS wouldn't it?

I have a feeling you'll prefer windows 10. Both have pros and cons but I find 10 more useable. Having a proper start menu back is amazing.

WindowsXp, 2003 Gateway desktop. It has like 400MB of RAM (but it will not show my an exact number anywhere) It is probably just to old to run TSR.

 

Also the error I get when trying to run it.

oh lol. Well it will in system properties (start -> right click my computer -> properties, OR start -> run -> sysdm.cpl), but yeah that won't run TSR haha.... If the RAM is the same kind in your other PC, it might work here though. Or since the other one was the better PC, you might try switching the power supplies to make the other one work again for a while. Good chance that they have the same type unit inside.

I don't think they have the have same unit as they had different manufacturers (Gateway and Dell) and were made six years apart.

Plus it had an oddball power supply that Dell custom makes (or used to) for office computers.

If they do work together they certainly won't fit in that notebook-like case.

 

Also apparently it has 512 Megabyte RAM, close enough the point is the newer one was old and slow and this is extremely old and slow.
