Can someone please tell me if this old game - or other Tex Murphy games - will run on XP, or will it (they) require patching?
And is it mouse driven or keyboard driven?

I'd be grateful for any advice.

The GOG version should work without any tweaks.
If you want to play the original CD version, you can try ***Inferno's setup*** or use DOSBox.

It uses both. Have you checked the manual?

Thanks for this.

No, I have not yet bought the game, so I have not seen the manual. As it should run OK on XP from GOG, I will try that - I prefer not get into the 'switching CDs' routine, as I found that to be a pain when playing Cydonia all those years ago.

That's one advantage of the GOG version -- you don't need to tweak and you don't need to switch the CD's. Have fun with the game.
