Hi Drac. I had no issues installing and running Alter Ego on my Windows 7 Pro 64 bit. This is my new ASUS G73 gaming laptop...so it's pretty "suped up." However, Windows 7 in and of itself is not an issue with this game.

Hi, borzoe. I'm going to guess your GMA 3100 is the problem. That is a very weak video chip and may not be able to run the game. Let me check on the game requirements for you and you may have to post your issue as a separate post here in the Glitches forum to get some help.

EDIT: The game requires a minimum of a GeForce FX 5700 or better. You should definitely post your question as a separate subject here in the Glitches forum. I don't know enough about these on-board video chips to help you out, but Jenny100 or InlandAZ should be able to give you more info.

Harry Potter & The Prisoner of Azkaban plays on Windows 7 64-bit edition with no problems.

Played though the entire game without incident.

It had listed Windows 98 and ME in it's system requirements, along with XP and 2000.

I bought Medal of Honor Airborne, I had not realized but it doesn't support 64-bit that my W7 has, I am installing it in an old XP. I don't know if it works in W7 32-bit. It does support Vista 32-bit.

Before I add it to the "no play" list, can you tell me if you tried any of the compatibility options in Win 7?

I didn't but in the Read Me it says it doesn't support 64-bit, I don't thing you can use that kind of compatibility, can I?

If it says that in the Read Me, then it probably won't work. But you could always give it a try and see what happens. Games that were created in 16-bit definitely won't work. For instance Shivers 2 plays just fine, but Shiver 1 doesn't because Shivers 1 is a 16-bit game.

I'll try it this afternoon and let you know.

I know how to play in Compatibility but not how to install that way, even the installation itself doesn't start, it ask for the code and later it stops.

To install in compatibility mode, you navigate to the disk, right click on the installation file, select Troubleshoot Compatibility and follow the promts.

I'm not holding my breath!

Draclvr,

I found Troubleshooting Compatibility, it ask in which PC worked, I put XP since it works without any problem, but the installation collapse the same way. I assume it should work in W7-32bit.

Thanks for your time.

Thanks Draclvr for all the info, but I am still having a problem with Dracula: Resurrection. It seems to start ok but then as soon as it gets to the opening scence it starts to get choppy. When I finally enter the game (having to skip over everything by using the spacebar) I can move around but as soon as I go to open a door, it locks up (until I hit the spacebar again, which just makes me skip the scene anyway) Please help.... growing more and more frustrated!

Hello, luckeeme1299 and welcome to Gameboomers! Since this sounds like an issue that might be best sorted out in a thread of its own, why don't you start a new subject here in the Glitches forum, so we can start gettting you going in this game.
