mkreku: I love that the original post from the GoG team is dated November 2009..

Good luck getting that Win 7 compatible sign up! I'm not holding my breath.
GOG have been progressively working on making their catalogue officially compatible with Windows 7, they just haven't made any note of this in this thread. Most games in the catalogue are now marked as being compatible, and the remaining ones generally work fine anyway.

If you're unsure about the Windows 7 compatibility state of a game that doesn't list it on its store page check with the game's forum for confirmation.
This would be very nice. I so far have bought two games from GOG, Arx Fatalis and Planescape: Torment, and I cannot get either to run properly on win 7.

Have you posted your problems on their individual forums here? I don't have Planescape: Torment but I've had no problems playing GOG's Arx Fatalis on Windows 7 64-bit.

I recently played throught by retail boxed version of Torment fine - I'm on 32bit Win 7 but I'm sure I would have heard more if more people were having problems...

I have looked at all the forums i can find on both, and none have a solution for me. they both start up, but they run at like one 20th of what they should. Arx has to run at very low settings, and torment is so slow i quit playing because t made it basically impossible. And this is a pc that runs Crysis on high at 50 fps.

Arx Fatalis has problems on certain configurations--Nvidia cards seem to be especially affected. Have you tried the unofficial patch? Some users have reported that this improves their performance problems.

Goethe: If we already purchased a game that currently is not compatible on one's operating system, when they are compatible, we wouldn't need to purchase them again, correct?

The fact that we purchased the game once (located in our profile) would simply require another download for the new compatibility?
I believe it is in GOG's best interest to update the games in their catalouge so that they work on the newest systems. It wouldn't make too much sense for them to charge people double who just happend to buy it earlier then somebody else did. :)

Once you buy a game, it is yours, and you can download it as much as you want. I, for instance, redownloaded Heroes of Might and Magic 2 since a new version came out last year here....Now, there is always a chance that the game will be pulled due to some legal matter (ie: game rights being sold to someone else who won't make another deal with GOG), but, since there is no DRM you can always keep what you downloaded. GOG, unlike most other digital download companies is not in the bussiness of ripping off people, and "renting" you game licenses. Welcome aboard Goethe and have fun with Your good old games! :D

Is it just me, or are all games now listed as Windows 7 compatible? I asked about this already on the Gangland thread, but somehow this thread seems more appropriate :D .

Can we get some kind of official news notification about this?

Edit: Okay, I've found some games that weren't listed as Windows 7 compatible. Earthworm Jim 3D, Empire Earth, Evolva. False alarm, I guess.

All the Sierra games on GOG are Windows 7 compatible; all you need to do is download the updated installers from the My Account page.
