downloaded the client under a pure windows xp sp3 machine, im getting the same errors as in the virtual machine
errors listed in order:
1.- gettickcounter64 in kernel32.dll - to fix this i changed the libcurl.dll to a different version, to 126.96.36.1996 - if its not this version i get a libeay.dll error 2.- i change the name of the ddraw.dll that comes with the client, and replace it with the one on system32, after intalling directx for windows xp
3.- the client updates and changes back the ddraw.dll, giving a directx generic ddraw_create error whatever, so i change it back
4.- used the following setting: system memory, 32mb video card, laptop 800x600 windowed mode
AND IT WORKED!!
ONLY on a pure xp machine that is, or it seems it works, i havent been getting crashes and such, needs more testing tho
on a virtual machine still doesnt work properly, it starts and all but crashed after a few secs
