Thread: Which Operating System would Devs recommend for LOMAC? | Forums

  1. #1
    I read in the past win2000 is the OS Lomac is being developed on so it should run fine on win2000 as well. Hopefully this is still the case.

    I run XP Pro and have had better stability and reliablility than any previous version of Windows. I don't believe there is any advantage of having Pro versus Home as the Pro version of XP gives you more network capabilities. I'm sure the regular Home version of XP is just as good for gaming as Pro.

    Cheers,

    Carl,

    Did you experience any problems with win2000? I know win2000 is not the typical gamers OS. Just wondering if I should invest in XP Home edition?

    Cheers

    I never had Windows 2000 so I can't comment.

    Well for me that is the general plan. I've been tossing around the idea of going with XP regardless of Lomac, but any potential problems with Lomac and win2000 would just make the decision easier.

    It's been my experience with demos that the final game always runs better than the demo. If I wait to decide it would be after the final release.

    - WIN2K or WIN XP should to great

    The only difference I've heard from some friends of mine is the networking in XP is a bit more stable for online gaming than win2k. I can't wait to actually try it out [img]/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif[/img]
