Default Sin hype

It might help get popularity behind SiN if you release the game as a free download. It worked for Tribes and Tribes 2.

Of course... It might need to be patched a bit more so it runs better on Windows XP =/

Just an idea!

Eh, i run it with Windows XP and i have no problems. Using NVIDIA card, though [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] I think it could be doing good for Sin II, since it seems to be somekind of hype to release old games as free nowdays. Well, who knows.

Just calculate the money loss for it being released for free.... I estimate about $35 over the next five years.... [img]/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

By patching up, I mean stuff like making you not have to set the setup for windows 95 compatability mode.

By for download, I mean the game itself, where its playable, not source code =] uhh

It doesn't really need to run with win 95, 98, or any other compability mode. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
