I bought myself a copy of Shadow of Destiny on the PC. I know about the backwards compatibility stuff in XP and I've tried to do that but I could only get it to install with the 98 back compat but not run. The only patch I could find was for a Euro version that changed some languages or some such. Any tips?

Maybe I wasn't too clear and that was my fault. It was made to run on Win98, not DOS.

Weird.. the game came out recent enough that you'd think it would work on XP. I saw a review that said he ran it on XP but it crashed some.The only thing I can suggest is if you still have a copy of Win98 around, try running it in a virtual machine (Microsoft's Virtual PC is one way of doing that).
