Title : Windows XP Support
Date : 2022-05-25 Count : 1261
 
Good afternoon Pilots!

As time marches forward deep into 2022 and onward, many legacy game servers stop supporting Windows XP for some reason, especially as the operating system begins to age. For the record, Windows XP support was officially ended by Microsoft in 2014, which means that Windows XP has not seen any updates since then (with the exception of the WannaCry patch).

At GunBound Retro, we understand that "feel" to play retro and legacy games, especially on hardware that the games were originally intended for. In the past few years, there has been an evergrowing community of folks who acquire legacy hardware from Craigslist, eBay, etc., with the intent of playing old legacy games, and we understand this wholeheartedly.

GunBound Retro will forever support Windows XP. We are proud to be one of the few online games that still support this legacy operating system, as most online games pull the plug on the OS. There is nothing special you need to do to run GunBound Retro, you just simply need to download the Windows XP installer from our download page, install the program, and play, just as it was originally intended.
We recommend Windows XP Service Pack 3 with the latest possible patches, however GunBound Retro works on any version of Windows XP.

Our website is also formatted in a way that it will also be fully viewable on older display resolutions, too, such as 1024x768 screen sizes without needing to crop, and should load just fine on legacy hardware, too. TLS 1.2 or later is required to view gunbound.ca, however- MyPal Browser should work just fine for the job, but is not required to run the game itself.

Likewise, GunBound Retro will also continue to be supported with Windows 7 and later, so anyone with Windows XP can still play with other users who have Windows 11, as an example.

That's all for now!

Thank you,
GunBound Retro Team
