    I think you can play Ultima Pagan on windows 2k/XP with the right patches.

    I did it a while ago, I'm sure. Love the Ultima series. I was addicted to Ultima Online for 3 years or so.

    Thanx!

    but does it work for WinXP?

    (can't test it yet, still downloading the game)

    Try searching for a driver called "cute mouse". The name sounds dumb but the driver works like a charm for most any dos game.

    I'll regret this...
    anyway, here goes:
    remember when the MS Intellimouse was popular?
    it came with drivers as I remembered it.
    also came with its own software.
    one of those programs is mouse.exe.
    what it does is initiates the mouse.
    this works in MS-DOS and other windows supported systems.
