    Games VS Vista Beta 2

    I'm a big fan of running games on the wrong OS, so now I'm curious to see how your games fare.

    This might end up as a big list, so I reckon it'll have to be in easily charted form. Take the following example:

    Code:
    Title                         | Vista | Installs | Runs | Non-Root | Performs | Games
    ------------------------------+-------+----------+------+----------+----------+-------
    American McGee's Alice        |  x64  |   YES    |  YES |    YES   |   YES    |  YES
    Fur Fighters                  |  x64  |   NO     |  NO  |    NO    |   NO     |  NO
    The first column relates to whether the game installs at all (without hacking about unneccessarily). The second as to whether the installed game runs. The third as to whether the game causes a security warning dialog when you run it. The forth as to whether it runs "normally" (a bit slower than XP is to be expected). The fifth and final for whether the game integrates into the "Games" section of the Start menu

    Be sure to state whether you're using the 32 or 64-bit version of Vista. I'm gonna put as many of my games as I can to the test this weekend.

    Oh, and if something doesn't appear in the Games screen, then wait a bit - games have been adding themselves, with new artwork and ESRB ratings, as time goes by - which is rather cool.

    Good idea on the list, although I'm just too tired to compile it in that form atm sorry .
    Just installed HL2 again today, and have tried to run CSS on the 32-bit version of Vista.
    Installs and runs fine, but massive artifacting...so not sure whether it's a driver issue or what...can be a good thing...textures are all over the place, which means sometimes I can see through walls/doors....handy...but damn annoying

    Found the same with Civ 4 re the patching - I used FileMon in the end to find what it downloaded, and it turns out to be an InstallShield program which requires admin rights which is left in "My Games\Civilization IV\patch" in the user's profile.

    Even fiddling the installer for Fahrenheit so it gets past the DirectX check doesn't work - the game launches a process which consumes 100% CPU time but doesn't display anything (works fine under XP x64).

    It would also be very useful to have the grpahics card used mentioned here too - as ATI still has much better Vista support with it's drivers than Nvidia at the moment...

    When I get round to installing Vista on my gaming pc I will post some updates

    Baldur's Gate II is laggy graphically, I suspect as it only supports OpenGL rendering.

    Sacred I didn't hold any hope for as XP x64 doesn't run it either - the copy protection they used tries to load a 32-bit kernel mode driver at runtime, and the authors have flatly refused to supply one that works on x64 platforms.

    I think SpellForce's copy protection as being the reason it doesn't run - all that happens is a box appears with "the command completed successfully" in it (works okay under XP x64).
