    Well I finally opened up the shrink wrapped box of system shock 2 that I had lying around my house for 2 years. Anyways, I'm wondering if it's compatible with win2k, I don't feel like messing up my newly installed machine?

    Thanks.

    WinXP is hard to say. My personal experience with SS2 in WinXP hasn't been good. I just can not get any sound from it, while it was fine in Win2K.

    I've heard reports from other people where things were fine. So, it might be a sound card driver issue.

    Generally when getting old programs (and games) to work on never windows versions, this resource is invaluable:
