That's really the question isn't it. Will underground developers start having to put caveats of a game not being tested on Vista if they don't have access to a machine.

Virtual machines are always a possibility for the dedicated gamer but, as a developer, do you really want people to struggle to run your game? There are a lot of games out there so most people will just get something else rather than bother.

I know some of the early AGS stuff struggles under XP. Lunchtime of the Damned skipped straight to the closing scene (with dialogue but minus characters) when I played it on XP. Worked fine on my old 98 machine.

Cold Topic

A thread most controversial, that’s what I want to start
Full of impassioned arguments, of posting from the heart
And for this stimulation all will be thankful to me
On come on everybody it won’t work if you agree
