Windows 7: Some general questions on playing older games in Win 7

17 Feb 2011   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit

On my experience these games from your list are playable: Half-Life 2, TES4 Oblivion, NWN2, Battlefield 1942.
And for old games, installing Setup.exe in compatibility and administrator mode helps, very often.

P.S.: SledgeDG, your avatar is cool! But using a Tux as an avatar in a win7forum... Well that's weird... :P

I just like the underlying irony besides Tux are ultimately cool and great artwork

as for Sacred, I just love what the goblin shaman says: "Schlagt Ihm den Kopf ab, ich brauche einen neuen Aschenbecher"

(Cut off his head, I'm in need of a new ash tray)
