Windows 7: 64 bit games

02 Aug 2009   #11

Windows10 Pro - 64Bit vs.10547

Both UT2004 and UT3 utilise 64-bit - if fully patched - both go like hell..!!
Half-Life 2 is also very well optimized - ultra smooth play..

Egosoft's X3:TC seems to run much more smoothly in 64-bit..
..though it's not optimised as such - there's heavy CPU/RAM usage in that game, by design..

so i installed need for speed underground 2 instead and that works fine even if it is my 200th time of playing it.
also i finally got to play halo 2 bought it ages ago thinking i could play it on my mrs laptop(it has vista) but it was pretty ****ty trying to play it on there so its been on the shelf gathering dust till now.
I have the same problem with Far cry. I changed some graphical options - lowering a few things and now I can actually see what is going on, just water is one big blue-gray thing ... You must put lightning to low ... but I still can't play such game, under win XP 32 bit everything is O.K.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

You should try HL2 with Fake Factory's Cinematic mod.
Its like playing a whole new game.
It is very demanding as in 64 bit,3 or 4 gig ram,and a good vid card.
In return you get new music,updated graphics,3d models etc.
Couldnt play it before,but with W7-64 it runs very good
