RE: AAMFP Windows XP Support

While it might work on Windows XP, it must not be expected by those who still run it, so I think it would be more like an experiment in a way. Windows XP is old, and if you are still running this operating system, you either have a very old computer, or you for some reason decided to install Windows XP on a modern computer, which in itself may not give you the best results since Windows XP really is not at all designed for modern computers.

In case anyone feels it is unfair that A Machine For Pigs does not support or is not guaranteed to work on Windows XP, you might want to look at it from a different point of view. Windows XP has been dying for years (in other aspects than popularity), and since Microsoft very soon (if it not already has been done) pulls the plug on all of its support, it may officially be recognized as dead, once and for all. Game developers should not have to spend time and resources to ensure that their new and fresh games work on a dead system.

It might work on Windows XP, but then again, Windows Vista was built from the very ground up, and while I do not know much about the software that Amnesia runs on, a lot of programs have compatibility issues between Windows Vista/7/8/8.1 and Windows XP, so I guess we will have to wait and see for certain.
