the fallout series for me is working fine i play without compatibility sometimes fallout tactics likes to not work sometimes its not bad the windows 7 compatibility mode is also better than vista so see if playing a game in xp service pack 3 that should work the best
Oh man, to bad I didn't see this thread before blowing my money on King's Quest. I guess I will just have to wait until they get this stuff Compatible with Win 7 :-/
So I am guessing that when it does become Compatible we just re-download the game?

Yes.

It's better that way. Unless you want a DRM that updates your games everytime...
That's what I thought, I just didn't know if it was going to maybe be a patch.

Nope..GOG's ethos is no hassle..so overall everyone having the same install is best.
After encountering a problem a couple of times (one of them being with Ground Control II) with the rundll32.exe occupying cpu, I found a solution. Since it seems Windows 7 (and Vista?) related I thought I'd post a link to the article that helped me out:
http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/w7itprogeneral/thread/d9aaef3d-d294-4a27-847f-0dc1422e3930
I'll repeat and "clarify". It is a "solution" to the problem where Game Explorer seems to intervene with game startup. Where first attempt of startup seems unsuccesfull but initiates rundll32.exe which hogs cpu power. And a second attempt of game startup is succesfull but with a continued high workload for the cpu, stemming from the first attempted startup.
So the Kings Quest games wont work with Windows 7?

Check the KQ forum/this thread.
The Guild gold works fine in windows 7 32 bits btw, tried it the other day when i was bored.
I'm running 7 Home Premium 32. Fallout, Divine Divinity, and Dark Fall: The Journal work well. Broken Sword 2 has a major glitch, but I'm doubtful that it's related to the OS.
Opinion side-note: I use Windows 7 on my cheapo laptop and like it a lot, but I can't really afford the $110 it'd cost to upgrade my only gaming-quality PC from XP to 7. Aside from that, I'm afraid it'd bork things beyond repair and would require a fresh install, which I have absolutely no idea how to do.

Fresh aka clean install is completely easy. You just click 'custom' and clean install I think it is when installing. Clean install is recommended by Microsoft.
I've played Fallout 1, Divine Divinity, Under a Killing Moon, Pandora Directive, and the first Gabriel Knight on Windows 7 64-bit and had no problems. A bit of video stuttering and the occasional audio hiccup during the Tex Murphy games, but nothing game-breaking.
Arcanum worked fine on Win 7 64 bit. Occasional graphics glitches, particularly with the cursor, but nothing show stopping.
BTW, I'm really new to GOG and I love it.

Does Die by the Sword still have that weird colors problem in Win 7 that can only be fixed (as of this time) by downloading the Xtended mod??
Keep in mind, I played DBtS on a pre-release copy of Win 7. Perhaps the official version has the bugs worked out of it.
