WIndows 7 Game Compatibility List.....

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
OK, so now that Build 7000 is out, let's start a new thread - regardless of previous experience, please list all games that you have tried on Build 7000, and your success / fail reasons.

Information
For ease of use, when listing games, list each one on its own line - makes it a lot easier to add to the list. Also, please list any hacking that you might need to do (compatibility mode, Run as Administrator, etc.)

NOTE
*New - I need to know if you are testing these games on Windows 7 x86 (32bit) or Windows 7 x86-64 (64bit).


WARNING
This thread is not to be used to ask questions. Use the regular forum for questions. Also, please read this list carefully - I am getting tired of the same game being mentioned 3 and 4 times....

Semi-working (partial functionality and / or hacking required):

* America's Army (works only when you don't use Punkbuster)
* Carmageddon 1 - graphical glitches during FMV. Playable and stable in normal gameplay.
* Carmageddon 2 - graphical glitches during FMV. Playable and stable in normal gameplay.
* COD4 Single Player (install nVidia ForceWare drivers 181.20+)
* Dark Sector (Needs to be run as admin)
* Diablo I - The in-game colors are messed up, like rainbows. Additionally, the intro videos play, but have weird blocks of off color. Running in compatibility mode does NOT work--the game complains about not being able to read diabdat.mpq off the CD
* Dungeon Keeper 2 Works only In XP Compatability mode, with menu and in game graphic gliches. Probably due to Drivers
* Everquest 2 - disable SLI
* Fallout 1 - graphical glitches during FMV. Playable and stable in normal gameplay.
* Fallout 2 - graphical glitches during FMV. Playable and stable in normal gameplay.)
* Grand Theft Auto 1 - Game save corrupts, like in Vista and causes game crash, can use GTA Fixer to fix the game each time to start it
* GTR Evolution (Trying on a fresh install to see if old OS install was corrupted
* IL2 Sturmovik 1946 Online - Hyperlobby client (required to play IL2 online) Must run as admin w/ win98 compatibility mode, still some graphical errors within the program, but nothing serious.
* Madden 08 (installer must run in Vista/XP compatibility mode)
* Myth 1: The Fallen Lords - Runs perfectly in "Compatibility mode for WinXP SP2"
* Myth 2: Soulblighter - Runs perfectly in "Compatibility mode for WinXP SP2"
* Neverwinter Nights (Diamond Ed) - installs and plays very Nice on x86. Run as admin.
* NFS: Porsche 2000 - works for me with some animation glitches when your driving with the dashboard cam
* Quake Live- Issues but works, with latest nVidia drivers loads full screen but get scan lines. (FF3, wont load right in IE8) (confirmed on x86-64)
* Silver (1999) - works fine except for the colors not being displayed correctly. (confirmed on x86-64)
* StepMania v3.9 installs and runs - however, if you add songs through the utility and if it doesn't have the rights, it will still be able to create the necessary files to create a song but, they get redirected in AppData (or somewhere else lost in the dump that is those places). Making both the utility and the game itself run permanantely as admin makes the game run perfectly withot a hitch. It runs great too without admin privilege.
* Sword of the Stars - Collectior Edition: Works if you update DX9, because not all DX9 files are in Win7
* System Shock 2 - You'll need to use unofficial patches and fixes to get it to work on anything above a Win9x based operating system, but it still works as well as it did on xp/vista with a little help.
o Through the Looking Glass: Honoring the Legacy of Looking Glass Studios
o Strangebedfellows.de - Index[/font]
* Test Drive 2002 - Use Compatibility for XP
* The Settlers - Rise of an Empire (Die Siedler - Aufstieg eines Königreichs) works perfectly fine under Windows 7 64 bit (beta build 7000). You have to download and install, however, the very latest TAGES V5.5.5.2 x64 driver from the tagesprotection.com web page. Earlier TAGES drivers will deny the start of this game under Windows 7 64 bit.
* The suffering - It's ad-supported (I didn't see any ads so far, though ). No spywares or virus detected. Yes it runs! I finally managed to run it under my Windows 7 x64. You must run it as an administrator and also run it in compatibility mode for Windows NT
* Windower program for Final Fantasy XI however does not work on build 7000 at all, but does work with latest beta build on 7022 7048 and 7057
* World Of Warcraft (runs badly) (also report of running good in x86-64)
* Worms Armageddon - Graphical corruption of the menu after a game round ends, same thing on Vista, hasn't been fixed for either OS.
* Yo Frankie! - Yo Frankie! is an open-source game designed by Blender Foundation. It plays really fine, except we have some glitches on the main menu.


Not Working:

* Albatross18 (aka PangYa ) does not work on Windows 7. I have tried running it in compatibility mode, which makes the game crash while launching. Every time I start the game running normally I get a weird error (error message is gibberish). Other players are experiencing this problem as well link. (confirmed on x86)
* Atomic Bomberman has graphic issues and no network play due to IPX not being installable.
* Call of Duty 5:World At War (multiplayer) (now reported to work)
* Command & Conquer: Zero Hour - problem with install sheild with a tmp file... (now reported to work)
* Counter-Strike (classic, non source) won't run on b7000 64bit, tried with nvidia drivers 179 and 181 on 8800GT, keeps saying OpenGL nor D3D are supported and goes back to software mode.
* Crisis Wars 64bit - Runs for a short time in compatability mode, then the screen goes berserk and you cant see anything! (NO GO)
* Fate Undiscovered Realms does not install. Autorun bombs right from the get go. Running manually in compatibility mode(s) and as admin still a no go.
* Half-Life (Not sure if it's just a driver issue or not, but the video spins and you can't move. Menu access is OK though. This is without trying compatibility mode.)
* Medal of Honor: Allied Assault
* NFS: Porsche Unleashed. Tried in XP compatibility... no go (now reported to work)


Please add more , be specific: tell me which version , what worked ,what didnt work , if you need to run as admin , Xp compatiblilty mode Etc.

I will update the list every 2 Days.....
