    The link doesnt work for me. The website just hangs. Could you simply explain what game it is? Do you mean PS:T? If so, then I run Planescape on XP with no problems at all.

    Yes, sorry. It's a Planescape: Torment/Soulbringer combo. The link forwarded me to that site's main page...but they do carry PS:T.

    I've also got the 2-CD version. It runs perfectly on my XP Pro system without doing anything special to run it.

    I did have a problem running the game on XP when I installed it to a directory other than the default. I would crash every time I left the create character screen. I reinstalled the game to the default path and it worked fine.

    the soldout version that includes soulbringer runs great on my XP Pro, SP2, DX9.0c system, with all latest sound and video drivers. runs great on my bf's rig, too.

    altho a li'l word of warning... soulbringer stinks. :p

    PST is easily worth a few hundred dollars, so don't worry about paying for Soulbringer. Just think of it as free.

    PST worked for me on XP. Pre-SP2 and likely pre-SP1, as well, but it did.

    I bought it in the double pack with Soulbringer and I've had no problems what so ever.
