I want Rival Ball Tounament fixed now, all other projects halt.
Failure to comply and I'll make sure your next game is a flop before making final version.

This includes RB and RBT being WinXP SP2 compatible!

Um... I think RB and RBT are already compatible with SP2... do you mean Windows Vista?

Yep, they should work perfectly fine with XP SP2 (in fact, that's what we're running on most of the machines in the office). We can't test with Vista because we don't have access to the Vista beta.

I did hear they do release monthly or quarterly CTP versions of Vista and it is free for anyone who wants to try it out... but then again... I can't remember of the top of my head.

For the record, I'm the only person in LDA who actually wears boots on a regular basis.

RBT was running smooth under Windows 2000 SP4, I go and rebuild the machine with Windows XP Pro SP2 and theres really bad lag now?

Hmm, new install. Have you installed all the updates yet, or is it possible that Windows is downloading updates in the background?

XP also has a firewall that tends to block games and could affect RBT's performance. It should pop up a window asking if you want Windows to keep blocking it, but in case you didn't get the message you can go into your Windows control panel, open Windows Firewall and make sure Rival Ball Tournament is checked on the Exceptions page.

Automatic Updates are disabled and WinXP's firewall is disabled but I'll add RBT to the exclusion area anyway.

Thanks.

Everyone should know I've waited since late 2004 for RBT to be as stable as RB and I'm still waiting, if this was Microsoft guess where Windows would be?
