Playing on XP?
I’m sure this question has been asked many, many times, but I was unable to find a thread. I just bought Axis and Allies again after losing my old disk several years ago. I used to play on an older computer, and now I am trying to play on a laptop that runs windows XP. Every time I start the game it closes as soon as the first round of a ‘combat move’ (‘AxisAllies.exe had encountered a problem and needs to close’). I know the game is around ten years old, so I was wondering if it’s not possible to run on Windows XP?
P.S. I am not very skilled when it comes to computers, so please dumb-down the langauge.
it wont work any more with XP. The patches aren’t working anymore.
damnit! so how does everyone here play?

Most here play by forum using a dice roller and map utility.
If you’re looking for a replacement for the old CD-ROM that offers real-time play try Triplea:
You will need a current version of Java to run the game. One of the downloads includes the necessary java installer if you don’t have the latest version. “Unstable” in the file name simply means there are new features in the download which are currently being testing before being released as “stable”.
If you have any difficulty with it post back and I’ll see if I can help you. ~ZP

Eureka! I was going to ask for a link to get a version of triplea since my last computer died.
