chautemoc: Win7 hasn't even been out a year...
Wouldve been pointless to test on beta software.

Spectro: It's been 10 months. That's a long time.
10 months is something around 300 days, so it's 2 days for testing one game if it runs on win 7. I would say, that it's fast not slow. And they have new releases to prepare along with old releases.
So we gonna get a list which games are win7 compatible now? The site crashes to often to look up for each games compatibility, and I have 108 gogs ;_;

Vision: Nah, I'm sorry. I still love GoG, but I really don't see any excuses working for this. We're going on what, two years now that they could have been working on this? Likely more than that honestly. Not to mention that this IS a business...

Sorry, you're wrong; that's one of several reasons why Microsoft allows access to their betas. It is not just to find and fix any issues in Windows itself, but to allow publishers time to find and fix any issues that occur with their software as well, so that things work smoothly across the board when the OS is released at retail.

So yeah, the beta time is precisely FOR testing of exactly this sort.

It looks like they've been spending time planning stunts where they close the site instead though...

Probably everything but these.
I redownloaded Teenagent just to test this. The installer is the same exactly as before, and yes, the game fucks up Games Explorer... again.

Windows 7 support, eh? Whatever...

EDIT: I think this puts things over the top now. I'm not angry or something, just... sad. I will stay on the forums, have a chat from time to time on the Steam group, but now I think I can say I'm done with purchasing games. I so much looked forward to official PROPER Windows 7 compatibility... but now, meh. I see you guys didn't even try. No offense.

Please explain me how did you end up with this official statement that 7 is supported? Because clearly nothing was done to this game in particular (I don't doubt about others as well).
Do I need to redownload all my games fro W7? They all work fine already and I really doubt they did any significant changes lol.

Tirpitz: Because many of You seek this knowledge I hereby bestow this Official Statement upon Thee:
We are still working on ensuring Win7 compatibility. Considering the quantity of games in our catalogue it will require us some time to make sure that this quantity comes with quality. So I do assure You that once GOG.com games are compatible with Windows7 a proper notice will appear on our site. After all that would be something boast, wouldn't it? :)
Most of the stuff that works on vista *should* work on 7 though. Most of the stuff is not all, so yea. Testing the entire catalogue is quite a feat :)

Unless you are having trouble with a particular game, then don't download them. Nothing was changed.
As I see a lot of games are declared as Win7 compatible, yeehaaw!
But just imagine the awful lot of testing work that will come with windows 8! I think THAT testing will definitely need a lot of time. But hopefully gog.com will then be twice as big as Blizzard and can afford a horde of testers. :D

thats great and all.. but commandos doesnt even work on my XP 64 bit yet
A little update...

Sorry about my rant in the previous posts... I was a little pissed not to see full Windows 7 support.

I will be making fully compatible installers that will also integrate the games (for the ones I own) in Games Explorer and make that great OS feature useful once again. Will post once they are done.
Can we have a list of games which are updated for Win7? I guess that many games were already working under Win7 and are unchanged, so there is no need to re-backup them now before gogs next great pr-idea starts. Otherwise I must re-download all new marked games again, which costs bandwith and time for me and for GOG. Thanks.


Edit: Beside Win7 support a list with all updated games by date is necessary to backup this games immediately.

Do you have over 150 games on your shelf?

If yes, be pissed (or keep an older computer handy)
If no, don't care.
^ this got out of context... lol. No, I'm not going to pirate GOG, hah. :)

(and won't post the installers here if you don't want tooooo or its not legal :))
