Discord and Windows XP

Recommended Posts

Probably its not possible to get an actual app to get working.Or make a XP-compatable app from scratch(i think discord is open source) and make it look like the original discord but xp compatable :)

No I do not believe it is.
Web version works good enough for me anyway.

I like the web version too but the voice chat function doesnt work.It says "Upgrade to the latest chrome,opera,firefox 38+ or use the app"

Electron-based, I think.
I just stick with web version.

Yep, Discord uses Electron and Electron doesn't work on XP. Besides, the web version doesn't work neither on Chrome 49 nor on Chromium 54 as the page doesn't load and it's just blank. On Firefox 59.9 ESR Discord *does* load, however it's buggy.

 

I think @Dibya will be pleased to know that another app uses Electron. (He hates it xD).

Has anyone tried using one of @roytam1's browsers and spoofing the user agent?

IIRC roytam1's Basilisk fork (I dunno how's the case with PM28) allows you to use the Discord voicechat feature.

... There was a recent identical thread over at the Vista subforum:

Read my detailed reply here... or TL;DR:

1. Use Basilisk52[Serpent 52.9.0] with a SSUAO for Discord to pretend you're using FirefoxESR 60 on Win7+, or

2. Use FirefoxESR 52.9.0 and change its default UAO for Discord, with the aid of extensions, to the one of FxESR 60 (on Win7+).

New Moon (27 or 28) won't work at all, because of no support for WebRTC (used by Discord's voice chat feature).

Easiest to change in about:config, at key: general.useragent.override.discordapp.com
I use value: Mozilla/5.0 (7; Windows 7 X86; rv:63.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/63.0

Discord voice calls work on Yandex Browser (Chrome 57 engine, IIRC) without any modification.
