Yes I also use Change Res option, but it can be anoying if your using 1024x and get changed to 800x and if the game crashes it doesnt switch back to 1024 (And then your bloody icons are moved!)

I like my XP! Probably because I have a nice hard drive and a 256mb RAM graphics card, along with a flat screen. And TGF runs fine on it, except for one click game (dark aftermath) that really [profanity] my resolution. And if you wanna whine about xp, do it. Who's the one mssing out?

And this might turn into a flame war along the lines of TGF vs. MMF.

Have yall heared about virtual memory?
virtual memory is fake ram your computer uses on your hard drive instead of a memory card.I use to use virtual memory because my computer froze too much from having almost no ram(i bought more ram months ago).Use virtual memory if you do not wanna go waste money on expensive memory cards.

note:If you have a slow hard drive i do not recommend virtual memory cause it can be slow.

Virtual memory seems to have almost no effect on things. I once disabled virtual memory and didn't remember to put it back on for about a year.

As for XP vs 98, I agree that XP crashes a hell lot more. Maybe it's because of XP's reliance on IE 6, which already crashes like hell, but I find 98 (Second Edition) far more stable. Might I remind you that XP is also extremely vulnerable to hackers? I had more hacker threats than I kept track of and none of them got past my sturdy little Win 98 SE (or probably couldn't hack a computer to save their lives).

Graphically, it's cool after you sort it out. I still hate the large default buttons on most comps, so I just shrink them and change the color. I had a neat little 3D Invasion of the Muz 3D theme last year till I reformated my comp . And the cursor has a shadow!

But overall, I still prefer good ol' 98 SE for menial labor, like network rendering or LAN games.

I like the way XP looks and I don't have anything against it even though I use 98. If games seem to run slowly on your computer then you may want to fiddle around with some of the options in the application properties > Runtime. Vsync, Use Direct X, Use Vram. V-ram makes a huge differance, My computer can't handle scrolling in MMF games but when I flick V-ram on they run smoother than a smoothie.

Ya good old Win98se I will never change

But ya MMF is better in that it can handle the frames faster right?
cause TGF kinda sucks on the frame rate when its full screen unlease you have a fast computer right?

Get the display object, it resizes the screen for you when you play the game and it dosn't slow it down.
