Default Rites of War XP

I have a computer with Windows XP. Think it would be able to run Rites of War? I love turn-based strategy games...and I love anything that lets you control Tyranids to even the slightest degree. That said, I'd love to try out Rites of War!

Yup. So far, I've had mixed luck with older games on my number-box. Anyone have any idea if this would work? Probably not?

If you can get Chaos Gate to run, chances are you can get any of them to.

You can get most older games to run on newer systems, provided you know the right utilities to use or patches to apply.

A big problem though, is the fact that Direct X versions have changed a lot. A lot of Direct X 6 games and before have a lot of trouble running on Direct X 9 machines, mostly because you're getting into different operating systems. 2000 never was very good at running games, and NT, 98, and 95 share some of that same quality.
