Hi Maggie, GOG doesn't list Windows 10 as a supported system on their webpage for Longest Journey, but there are folks with Windows 10 posting in the GOG forum for the game, saying they are playing it. I have also seen mention of a couple of glitches with the game and Windows 10 for some people, but apparently there are workarounds.

Maybe someone else will be able to give you more information, or they can speak from personal experience. I'm still running Windows 7.

I moved your post over to Glitches because this was a technical question rather than a comment on the actual game.

Marian I have seen many posts on different sites most I will not trust but some I do and they are playing it. I have the game but somehow one disc got lost so I am buying a new one. Thanks will let you know.

If you got the game from GOG, then the only posts you should be reading are from their website. If it says on the GOG website that Windows 10 is not supported for this game, then it probably won't play. You can read through the posts at the GOG website and see if any of the things some of the other people who also got it at GOG will work for you.

I'm not sure if the disk version will play on Windows 10 - one of my disks broke and I never replaced it.

Yes, there are folks on the GOG forum playing it, but some posters had to use some workarounds, as I mentioned in my last post.

I hope you will be able to play the game, maggie.

If you have trouble, let us know.

The GOG version works perfectly for me in Windows 10, although not officially supported by GOG for that OS. The only glitch I've encountered is that the "yes" and "no" buttons don't appear, for example when you quit the game. The workaround is simply to press "y" for yes and "n" for no.

In the latest GOG version (and disc version with the latest patch) a pop-up window allows you to change a few technical things before starting the game, like playing in software mode. The only thing I've done there is to check "force single buffer" in order for anti-aliasing to work.

Thanks for that information. That workaround you mentioned above is what I had been reading about - and it's a very simple one, too.

That's great - maybe that one would work for Maggie. Although I think she already purchased it again from Steam. Hopefully one or the other will work.

I always chuckle at us - gamers, that is. The things we won't do to play the games we love!
