GOG version system reqs expansion

Very happy to have ADOM from GOG! But I thought I'd ask:

Win 7,8 10 is fine, and I have it on my win 10 box... But is there any chance you could do something to allow it to run on XP? Or recommend any tweaks, hacks, etc. with all standard disclaimers gladly accepted

I get this on XP: The procedure entry point InitializeCriticalSectionEx could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNAL 32.dll

Sorry, we are bound to use the Galaxy.dll (for GOG) which is the only one that doesn't work on Windows XP. You could try to delete it, but I fear this won't work either.

Thanks for the reply. I had not DLed the Galaxy stuff, just the individual files. Very grateful for a free-standing version of ADOM :) And I guess it's unrealistic to want XP support...

I haven't tried the individual downloads yet, but I think they also contain the Galaxy.dll (otherwise you wouldn't get this error message). But as I said, the chances are slim that it will work without. Maybe we can try do detect this in a future version?
