Good Day to you all. So with the announcement that Microsoft is launching a new OS soon, what if any challenges lay ahead for this game, the game engine and the XWA upgrade modifications? Will Windows 11 throw a wrench into how this game is run? Has this project anticipated any challenges that this OS change may place in front of us?

We most likely don't know _for sure_ at this moment, but I expect Win 11 will be backwards-compatible. So, I think XWA should continue to run.

A bit early to tell with MS just having announced it. But I agree with blue_max, from what little I was able to gather so far it looks like compatibility shouldn't really be an issue on our end.

They call it Windows for gamers, so they should do anything that games that work under win 10 also run under win11. As i read win11 is available as update for win10 so i hope there are no problems

Hi - has anyone made the upgrade to Win11 yet? Any problems with XWA or the TFCT?

Cheers

Been running XWA (Steam) and TFTC on a Win11 machine for a few months now without issues.
