There must be someone out there that has managed to get Prophecy running on a Win2000 machine. Has anybody got any good links to sites or know of anybody that has figured out the problems. I really want to play Prophecy again, but I don't want to go back to Win98.
Actually, with a change to only several lines of code, WCP runs under Win2k just fine. The reason the shipped executable doesn't work is there are a couple of issues that need to be fixed regarding WCP's memory management and memory initialization that seem to work fine under Win95/98. Without the source code fixed and a recompile of the game, this won't happen.
I have to remotely manage equipment at my worksite and 98 sucks for it. MMC doesn't work on 98 and I was hoping for a compromise with Win2K. I suppose I can go back and dual boot it but it's annoying to have to do that.
