I had two retired XP computers, so I used the older one. Still had my W98 CD. I had to do some workarounds for things like the processor being a bit too fast, things like that. Information about that stuff was easy to find on the web. Finally, 98 worked normally. After Dark loaded and worked, for the most part. You could run Mowin' Man, Boris, Pipes or whatever, but Lunatic Fringe would either not work at all or not work anywhere near normally. Bummer. After poking around in 98 for a while, I realized I didn't miss it at all. Went ahead and recycled the machine.

I'm okay with not ever getting to play the game again; it just seems silly that it's so hard to get a tiny little program to run on machines made after 98 was obsolete.
