Windows 7 Professional 64 bits
Warlords Battlecry III...

...currently running on my Seven 64bits.

1. To upgrade from 1.00 to 1.03, use the patch found on
Patches and Fixes: Warlords Battlecry 3 v1.03 Full Patch - Demo Movie Patch Download Section -
The other patchs don't run on Seven 64bits.

2. Use Windows XP SP3 compatibility.

Windows 7 x64 Ultimate
Some more to add

The following have been tested on Win 7 Ultimate (32-bit/x86), Ver. 6.1 Build 7600 - with the latest 'windows updates' (as of today )

Alot of small-time games, that are pretty much obsolete now.

Network Q Rally Championship
Late nineties 3D rally game. Doesnt install, due to its age it uses a 16-bit DOS installer. If you do start INSTALL.EXE, cmd opens and you get:
This system does not support fullscreen mode. Choose 'Close' to terminate the application
(for anyone interested, this plays perfectly on XP SP3)

Classic Car Racing (1C Company)

Harry Potter & The Half-Blood Prince

Sabrina The Teenage Witch: Brat Attack (1999, Simon & Schuster/Knowledge Adventure)
[Amazingly, but im sure no one really cares all that much]

Street Legal

[i dont own this game any more, but i am 100% certain it installed and played out of the box.]

Worms 2
(Team17, 1997)
REQUIRES WORK-AROUND: Installs fine (if using a more modern distro, i.e. Sold Out Software), but will not run properly (you will get colour corruption, i.e. everything goes an awful pink or green colour.) unless you end the process "explorer.exe" before playing. Other than that, works fine.

As a side note, when will we be seeing this 'google doc' ?
If and when its up and running, im very happy to contriubte or even help with the upkeep.
Also do you want compability for those 'shareware' games you get on games compilation discs (i.e. Daisy's Garden)?

Got more games to come, going through my library now!

Windows 7 x64 Ultimate

Empire Earth Gold - does not work. Installs fine, then the .exe runs and then closes itself. Tried compability settings and the stop explorer.exe trick - still no luck.

Windows 7 Retail

W7 Ultimate 64

I posted a thread on the Allods website about the issue I'm having:
Allods Online - A Completely Free To Play Online Game! • View topic - Allods Online blocked by Windows Firewall

Basically, it installs fine. Shortcut is set to launch from the "launcher.exe" file. But when I try to launch it, I get this weird error. After lots of troubleshooting, I tried launching it from another file in the program folder. "AOgame.exe". It launched fine. However, it crashes after about half an hour of game play. So I have to keep relogging in.

7 Ultimate x64 SP1

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (x64)
The Elder Scrolls IV: Knights of the Nine (x64)
The Elder Scrolls IV: Shivering Isles (x64)

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion GOTY Edition

Should all be added/placed under the 'Working' category, because all install and play and everything (even the Official DLC add-on contents). No idea about (x86), sorry.

Problem is, i remember it wouldnt work when i had windows vista and i'm concerned about it not working with windows 7. is there any way or are there any programs out there that would be best to make old games work on windows 7? it says it originally worked on windows 95, 98, 2000, and XP.

thanks for any help

i've checked out the dosbox website kuliddar mentioned, but im unsure as to which version i should download. any help here would be appreciated too
