Upgrade to the newest version of windows and get back to me after you try again.

Unreal World RPG dosn't require Windows 10.  You may want to run windows updates if you havn't done so in a while, but I'm able to play Unreal World RPG on my Windows 7 PC.

Did you try the "old hardware mode" option?

urw.ini

// If you've got an older computer and rendering fails you can try enabling old hardware mode.
// This mode uses software rendering and should be used only if absolutely necessary.
// Possible values - YES or NO.
//
[OLD_HARDWARE_MODE:YES]

You might also try turning off IDLE ANIMATION to speed it up if the game is slow.

That's crazy it's almost as if urw runs on all modern OSs. I never said it did require Win 10, but it just might require an OS not from the Jurassic era.

Hence it doesn't require windows 10.  Also, if you check out the steam page for Unreal World RPG, it does say that Windows XP is supported.

Perhaps you can get off your high stag now?

Update:  I had some issues getting the game to run on Windows 8.1 actually a week ago that I resolved by getting Visual c++ redistributables update installed.  Since I don't have windows XP anymore however I'm not sure how you would go about getting this installed on a windows XP machine.

This thread http://z3.invisionfree.com/UrW_forum/index.php?showtopic=8393 from the old forums may or may not help you.

Works fine for me on XP and always has.  :)
No problem installing it either.  :)
What's so special about Win.10 anyway?  :P

I'd suggest to follow JEB's advice on this one. The computer (graphics card specirfically) in question probably doesn't support hardware rendering.
