Dungeon keeper 1 and 2 on vista?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Is playing Dungeon Keeper 1 and 2 on vista possible?

In DK1 i can load it to the intro screen then it exits to a box at top-left of corner.

On DK2 it crashes after 5 secs in-game.


Please tell me how to run these on vista without dual booting.

it most likely is not Vista...but your 8800. in XP it was as simple as running dxdiag and disabling hardware acceleration. You can't do that in Vista...at least to my knowledge.

Under XP I get simlar things with a lot of old games...and that is how I fix them.

So I guess it might be your 8800 AND Vista...since it is Vista's fault that you can't turn it off.

DK2 <3 omg. haha best game ever
i too cant run it with my 8800 either. i get black squares all over the screen and then it crashes. i have tried everything, many patches and vista fixes ect. i used to be able to run it on vista, but i dont remember how..and i dont remember if it was with my 7600

i haven't tried it on my laptop yet, but it may work.
