i got a new pc at christmas and i have had no problems with games being compatable as i got xp and 98 installed, a partitioned hard drive as i heard xp has some compatability issues with older games. But when i found an old space fighter game which came bundled wit our old pc i could not get it to wrok properly. its called Wing Comander 3: Heart Of The Tiger, i even tried the xp compatability thing.
Game was on windows 95 on old pc but the main problem is now that itsays that i ned to remove some disc caching software to make game work properly as now it is struggling at 10 fps ingame.
i also have Hi-Octane it has the opposite problem at runing at about 4 times the usual rate
i know my descriptions are vague but becasue thats im not sure what else to say.
Any help would be appreciated
PS i know for a fact my new pc isnt broken or slow, it was recently checked over by a pro but he was unable to tell me how to fix the compatability problem andadvised me to post my problem here
