Yes, I have it on my Win 7 64bit based PC, installed and works PERFECTLY.

(If you have any wierd visual glitches happening, turn off any GPU AI, or SLI/Crossfire, the game HATES that, other then that you are good to go!)
Thanks, should be my next purchase on gog, unless something else i'ld like goes on sale for a good price :P

I bought and played through to the end Dark Star One without any hassles whatever on my 7/64 bit. I didn't have to do a single thing, just DL, install and play. Disciples 1 though.....
To the people who have games "Work just fine", I'm curious, do you let them install to their default directories (usually Program files (x86), or do you install them to a directory that you choose?

I have Gothic 1 and 2, and I NEVER install anything to "Program Files (X86), because I only keep my OS on drive C to avoid clutter and to give room to the page file.

The problem with Gothic 1&2 for me was just the NVidia drivers which have now been fixed.

But I'm wondering if all the people saying that a game doesn't work on on WIndows 7 is because they let it install to "Program File X86" I know installing some games (newer games) to that folder caused people some problems.

And to the people "Sticking with Windows XP", you're definitely missing out, I swore I wouldn't upgrade because I thought XP was M$'s "Ultimate OS", but all I cans say to you guys who are sticking with XP, Windows 7 blows XP away.

Just to add something to this post, I don't know if it's common knowledge but you have windows xp mode in windows 7 pro and ultimate. Installing games and programs in this mode enables you to run them in a virtual machine inside your operating system and make then behave like they would behave on actual windows xp machine. Only thing is - you need to dl the install files.

The only problem I had running Gothic 1&2 on Win7 64bit was Nvidias fault for not updating their drivers.
Since then they've updated the drivers and both of these games work fine for me.

I've also been able to run the original Empire Earths on my Win7 64 system, so I suggest you take a look at your system and make sure all your drivers are up-to-date, try running in any compatibility modes to see if that will work for you, and also try running the game as an administrator.

You don't give any data whatsoever of why those games don't run on your system, IE they freeze up, CTD, never start etc....

mothe: BTW, Broken Sword 1 doesn't start at all, Broken Sword 2 has no sound.
Aren't both of those supported by ScummVM? You might like to try getting the latest ScummVM and running them from that.
About to jump to W7 from XP just 2 Question 2:
- I think 64 willbe the future, so any reason NOT to get it?
- I guess with older games, which I like, XP-Mode from the W7 Pro version comes is really important?

Thanks :)

64-bit is the one to go for. If you have older hardware or devices they may not have 64-bit drivers available; however. You can use the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor to get an idea of whether drivers will be available. Vista drivers usually work on 7 if you can't get a proper driver, and many things will work fine with the generic drivers (monitors, mice, etc.)

As for XP Mode it actually isn't particularly suitable for gaming because it lacks 3D acceleration and does not support the 256 color display mode some early games require. These limitations can be partly solved by running XP Mode through VMware Player (free), but even it doesn't have full 3D support yet. XP Mode is just a pre-installed virtual machine, not some magical compatibility layer; if you have a suitable XP license you can install that in a virtual machine manually to achieve the same result.

The majority of games will run just fine natively, of course, and those that don't will probably have some fan patch or other workaround. GOG releases will also generally work (even if not mentioned on the store page) except for a couple of rare cases mentioned elsewhere in this thread.
