    NOLF2 worked on Vista x64, with a little bit of beating and the odd crash.

    I found I had to set the launch exe and the lithtech exe into compatability and required administrator to get it to work

    Different engines, so not sure. Would have tested, but I just didn't have room in my bag to bring every single one of my games in, tbh.

    Thanks

    It seems that 2 games in the article's list are playable on my setup, though they are not retail. One is Beyond Good & Evil, bought through Steam, the other is Fallout 2, bought through GOG (Good Old Games).

    As an added note, the older Fallout 1 (GOG) also works, although I had to rename the old ddraw.ddl file into something else for it to work smoothly. Messiah (GOG) does not seem to work with my Nvidia 9600GT, though it works when I switch to my built in Intel GPU included in my G41 mobo.

    Open Transport Tycoon 64bit works like a charm, as well as modified Doom, Doom 2, and its ilk. I have yet tested the X-Com series however, as they are not available on Steam in my region.

    Just a quick update - for some reason, my problems with Fallout 3 seem to have disappeared (aside from not being able to add to Windows Games Explorer) when I updated from Catalyst 9.3 to 9.10. Not a clue why, but I'm happier that my autosaves are safe now!

    No problems running BF1942 or BF2 on Vista x64. Have them both running with admin priviledges and not installed in Program Files. It's a punkbuster thing I believe.

    Hmmm...I have a DOS-disk and an old 266mhz celeron in the garage...required for Freespace2, which wouldn't even run under Win95.
    I wonder if I should get it out and see if it runs :D

    Good article - as for Dune II it works perfectly via DoxBox on Vista, so I'm sure it'll work under DosBox on 7.

    Saying that some of my CD based games don't work well under DoxBox on Vista - Screamer 2 is the obvious one that worked fine on XP with Dosbox but refuses to work correctly on Vista.

    Looks like dual-booting XP32bit/7 64bit is the best option for teh time being...

    enemy territory demo 2.0 works if you install from disk it mite not work (or demo downloa)

    steam auto installs DX9 update and MS 2005 C++ redistributable

    i am guessing that the full game will as well (just payed for it so find out in 2-3 hrs as i need to go out)

    Hi,

    just registered (after reading the site almost daily for a year) to comment that I got Thief: The Dark Project running on Vista 32-bit after 2 days of googling/fiddling on a ATi card. Don't remember how I did it though ...
