Silent Hill: Homecoming is not running well with Windows 7 x64.
Needed to add d3dx9_38.dll and xinput1_3.dll into /Windows/System/
After that game runs, but a lot of bugs are occured. Physics is not normal, some of actions are stopped like in intro my killer is stunned, instead that he is lying dead on ground. Also when tried to open security door to reach some guy, game stopped responding (crashes), or when tried to search around, guy showed up, but when opened door, my character is stunned, only end task helps.

If anyone knows if this crazy physics in game can be fixed, please tell me.
Thanks in advance,

Prince of Persia (2008) is working fine. The Saboteur is also up and running, but there are innumerable glitches (maybe that is the problem of the game itself).

Yes, unfortunately, the game is quite a bit sluggish due to bad optimization. Last I heard, a patch was supposed to be released, although I'm not sure if it got past the beta stage by now. I already finished the game and uninstalled it, so I don't feel the need to check.

A few more results for Windows 7 Home Premium x64
(AMD Phenom X4 9600 - nVidia 9800 GT - Realtek HD Audio)

Working perfectly (no compatibility modes used):
Driver: Parallel Lines
Age of Empires: Collector's Edition DVD
(AoE1,RoR,AoE2,Conq)

Working with issues:
Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance
- Seems to require an Creative EAX/X-fi -compatible soundcard. Hangs on a black screen without one. I got it fooled with a software EAX driver (ALchemy Universal). Volume is VERY low, but game is otherwise playable.


Not Working:
Need for Speed: Road Challenge (EU version of NFS:High Stakes)
- With official patches, it crashes. With unofficial (XP-)fixes it runs, but is painfully slow.

All games installed from Retail DVDs/CDs.

I'm facing numerous trigger event bugs (not to mention sluggishness), i.e. I've got the car and parked it in the garage but the checkpoint is not triggering- this is just one of many really annoying bugs.

CoD 4 single player works in x86. It works fine if all settings are at low. (not sound or anything like that, but things like 'number of corpses' should be tiny or small.

EDIT: I am saying this because it says CoD4 single player works for x64 only.
