Games that were tested on a Win Vista/7 LAN6votes I like it
Magnitus says: First time we tried on LAN, it complained about a missing CD early in the game... didn't have any problems the subsequent times and we played with 2-4 players. Played regularly across the Internet without any problems. Playable in co-op!
Magnitus says: Played a single game without any problem whatsoever. However, there was not co-op mode (only player vs player) so we moved on to it's successor.
Magnitus says: Played 3 games. It worked quite well and is playable in co-op vs the computer. However, my friend didn't like the game, so we didn't try it more than that in multiplayer.
Magnitus says: Played a couple of times on LAN without trouble. Playable in pvp, in coop or a mix of the two. Great game. Haven't tried it across the internet yet.
Magnitus says: Good with Vista, so so with 7. Made it work on LAN with 7 as a client, but not as a host (Vista hosted). Worked easily for Vista, but had to tweak the Firewall for 7 (you can also turn it off). Doesn't handle leaving games or disconnects well.
Magnitus says: Ran well across the LAN. You can't add computer controlled cars in multi-player races, but the derby mode is great fun even with just 2 players. We managed to play 4 players races without any hassle, but derby mode would occasionally crash.
Magnitus says: Played with 2 players on a Vista/7 LAN. The game won't recover from any network glitch (you'll have to quit), but we did manage to play 1 game out of 2 to the end. Will have to play more to determine overall stability.
Magnitus says: Worked with 6 players on a LAN with no problem. One player even had a intermittent connection and the game never crashed or got corrupted. Very stable.
Magnitus says: Managed to make it work for 2 players just fine, but when a third player tried to join, the game complained about CD-keys. That was on a LAN and not the internet. I'll have to try various things and comment at a later time.
Magnitus says: The game ran on Vista and 7 machines, but they couldn't connect to one another in multi (tried both with Vista and 7 hosting). We managed to make it work with Vista/XP, but we didn't have the time to really play and assess the overall stability.
Magnitus says: Couldn't play multiplayer using the shortcut, but there is a special executable in the game's directory with pre-configured workarounds (look at the support section). Played a game with 3 players on LAN and it was very easy and stable, no crashes.
Magnitus says: Played this game with 3 players on a LAN. Easy to setup, but glitchy. The game crashed while playing for someone during our first 2 tries: no way to recover. Third game was fine, but the boys decided to play something else halfway through.
Magnitus says: Worked like a charm for a LAN game with my friend. Played for 6 hours straight. No crashes. Easy to setup too.
Treat your GOGmix as your child - name it! ;)
Coming up with a cool and descriptive title should be your first priority. Being original is in your best interest - bet you wanna get lots of nice votes, right? Go all crazy if you want, but be sure to keep it civil!
So, what are the ingredients?
Pick a game that belongs in your GOGmix from the list, or find it by typing something in the text field. Relevance is key here - Earthworm Jim doesn't quite fit the "Sexiest heroines of all time" bill now, does it?
Justify your choice... Or not!
OK, so it's not required, but now that you went through the trouble of adding a game, telling everyone why you did it would be a nice finishing touch. After you're done here, add another game, rinse, repeat.
