Windows 7 Games Compatibility Testing

http://www.bit-tech.net/gaming/pc/20...lity-testing/1

Joe, ever afraid of losing touch with his oldest games, tests more than 60 games on Microsoft's new Windows 7, including a bunch of indie and Steam-based games. Does Deus Ex work on Windows 7? We find out if Windows 7 is the ultimate gaming OS.

Couldn't get my driver for the wireless card working on the x64 RTM version, until I installed it using Vista SP2 compatibility mode. So there are scenarios where compatibility mode is actually useful.

Retail version of Titan Quest on Vista had problems (missing driver in DX10 that was in DX9), however Steam version works fine on 7 (RC 64 version, waiting on Postie for 7Home).

Steam version of Indy & the fate of Atlantis works great (original CD version also runs but crashes to desktop after a few minutes).
Civ 4 on Steam works great as does UT3, Crayon Physics & World of Goo.

Nobody had any lying around. Thought about downloading a WOW trial to test, but MMOs update so fast that it didn't seem worthwhile tbh...

I just have a question, I skimmed the article and you may have already stated this. Did you use Windows 7 Ultimate? Ultimate is the only version which actually has the XP compatibility mode so if you were using a different version this may fix some issues.

I can't wait to get my FREE!!! copy from Micro$oft .

Beyond Good and Evil (Steam Version) Works fine on 7 x64, albeit with some graphical glitches that aren't bad enough for me to warrant investigating

Read the article. It answers that question.

I'm only not answering it here because it's not as simple as your question makes out. We did use Ultimate, but there are two types of XP mode. There's an XP Mode intended for businesses wanting increased compatibility in office software and then there's the general purpose XP Compatibility mode which is in all versions of Windows and has been since XP. The 'True XP Mode' intended for businesses is actually completely unsuitable for games because of the way it isolates the graphics drivers. The article discusses this in more depth

I would read but I have an assignment to finish, looks like I will have to do it later.

*EDIT*
Cheers, thanks for that Joe.
