playing PC games

  peg leg 11:28 04 Mar 2005

Just a quick question regarding playing PC games.
I have been given an old PC game "Alien v Predator" and it wont play on my machine!
I have Windows XP and the game specifies Windows 95/98.
Does this mean my system is too good to play this game?

Some old stuff won't work on XP. You could try right clicking the .exe file that is the game; select properties; then compatibility. In this you will see options to run in "Windows 95" mode or whatever.

I've never tried this myself, but have a may work!
