XP SP1 compatible with Crysis?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I just finished building my new computer. I used my old copy of Windows XP Version 2002 as an OS. I can't get internet to work on it yet, I'm trying to fix that at the moment. In the meantime I was hoping to play some Crysis on it. But, because I can't access the internet, I cant download SP2 for Windows XP. Do you guys know if Crysis is compatible with the 2002 version of Windows XP? If so I'll have something to do until I can get internet working...

Thanks

Some games and programs say, "XP SP2." I guess that means you have to upgrade to meet the requirements.

Also, do you have DX and stuff installed?

I don't see why it wouldn't be. My only thinking is it might require a program that only runs on sp2 and above. Other than that there should be no problem.

If it does... I doubt it will run very well compared to SP2.

Never know, the Hellgate London Demo required SP2 for some reason lol.

You can't do much of anything without SP2.

Well first add your system so we know what you have so we can help you better.

Now I wouldn't try playing a game like Crysis on Sp1. I doubt it'll work.
Make sure you get the right drivers and such for your motherboard.
