Hey there, glad to see this resurrected, but I wanted to know if this would be playable again on a current Win 10 system. I haven't played it since I was running XP Pro, and thats about 7 or 8+ years ago.... I even tried to play it when I had Win 7, and it constantly froze or wouldn't play at all. Thanks for all your hard work in this great game.

Hello and welcome to the forums! :)

It is very well playable! I'm playing it on a Windows 10 system myself.

Later windows versions may prevent the game from starting up because of new security features, but you can get around that with the Technical FAQ:

Have fun :)

I just got a new computer about 4 times more powerful than the old one. It's Windows 10, too. I just started up I-War 2, and I've been playing Instant Action without a problem.

Overthinking is kind of a habit of mine.

Cool, this is all good to know, but also, what about I-War 1... is this also playable on a Win 10 system?... I never really finished it, and would love to try it again, but haven't yet.

Yes it is, even better.

GOG bundles it with a 3Dfx wrapper so it uses all graphics capabilities without an actual 3Dfx graphics card - works fine.

I think the first game is so old now, it has even lesser problems than I-War 2. We have a technical FAQ for that, too:

It works in Windows 8/10?!

I did not know that, probably because I got the 3dfx wrapper after installing the game on a VM.
