out of XP & 98, on which would games run better ?
well.. XP would run it better.. but then i dont think there would b a very big difference..
like bharathbala2003 said XP is more suitable, some new games might not work on 98.
@spy i dont think there is such a game that works on XP and not on 98!! but since XP is capab. of mutli threading and saves much resources it plays a lillte more smoothly..
Microsoft Windows XP is the best for games. Old games u can use the compatibility mode
Well... Not Zeus and Armed and Dangerous
Zeus can't be run on XP even in emulation mode and A&D is dead slow...
spy`s totally wring i agree with bharat well there`s no game dat works on xp n not on 98
well the fact is both the o s`s have their pro`s n cons u cannot choose which one is the best
Chronicles of Riddick,Doom3(well i am not sure for doom3) does not work on 98 .
Guess what Republic commando demo is not running on win 98. dunno wat is the problem.going on loading for 20 mins. i think it should work with a radeon 9200 128 mb
Newer games might be better off with XP, as they may be optimised for XP.
For any older game, 98 is better as it occupies lesser RAM. Pre 2000 games are almost sure to run better on 98 than NT based operating systems.
Depends on many things. But I play games in Win98, since it hogs less memory as compared to WinXP. And use WinXP for my work purpose, since it allows my Intel Pentium 4 HT processor to work in Hyper Threading mode. Good for Photoshop like applications. Though games too might benefit from it. But still I use Win98 for playing games.
if u have a lower config then win2k with some optimisations
if a descent/ better config then win XP sp2 , system restore off, remote services off, network connection off, unrequired services off
Ha but can someone tell me y republic commando stays on loading the kashyyk mission after cutscene forever though i have sufficient reqs
98 iis best for old systems.
WIN98 OR WINXP WHICH ONE FOR GAME?
HEY GUYS NOTE THAT!! DOOM 3 !! WONT RUN ON WIN 98!
SO MY CHOICE FOR A GAME DUDE IS GO FOR WIN XP BEST FOR
GAMES WHICH ARE NEW AND COMPLEX
BUT FOR YOUR OLD DOS GAMES STICK TO WIN 98 WITH
THAT 486 PC
WINDOWS 98 is all the best for old PCs
XP,Me sucks......... too resource hungry on OLD PCs
on new they are good ..........98 sucks ... then
Did u know tht XP causes crashes to sm games?
Check out Commandos:Behind Enemy Lines
It always crashes on WinXP
but runs smoothly on Win98.
because commandos is a old game so basicly it wiil work good with 98 my opinion is to have both 98 & xp as os so u can play all games
WEll...no one has mentioned abt device drivers.. The latest device drivers for Graphics cards r designed for the RAW perfromance & they won't work properly with win98.
MICROSOFT WINDOWS XP is the best till date I have found....
