Hey everyone, hope someone will read this. So frustrating!

Just tried running both on my Windows 10 Pro rig, with a 980ti running on the 362 drivers.
20th Anniversary edition just crashes once I click an option in the main menu. Doesn't matter which.
15th Anniversary is a bit better - the menu is smooth and works well, the game starts, but the screen flickers like hell, and at a different rate for each scene.
I suppose no one is running it on Win 10? Cause if I'm not the only one, this is unplayable.

I can only say, I also have this problem: windows 10 home, gtx 980 on the 353.82 drivers.

exactly the same problem with both versions.
I've only run the 15th Anniversary version, and only on Windows 7, but it worked perfectly. Does WIndows 10 have a Windows 7 compatibility mode? Might be worth playing around with compatibility modes to see if you can get it to work (try all of the compatibility modes just in case).

Other than that, I'm not sure what to suggest. GOG claims that it works on Windows 10, so you should try contacting GOG support also and see if they can help.
Compatibility doesn't work unfortunately. I've also tried running as administrator; no dice.

I've got two other machines with wildly different specs that I'll try it on later today/evening:

- Core 2 duo e6600, ati 4850
- surface pro 2: i5-4300, hd4400

We'll see!
Alright, just tested it:

i5 4300 + intel HD4400, windows 10 pro
- Works fine, both fullscreen and windowed
- 15th Flickering in full screen, windowed works

i7 3770k + GTX980, windows 10 home
- 20th Black screen with cursor
- 15th Flickering in full screen, windowed works

C2D E6600 + ATI 4850, windows 10 home
- to be done

Curious to see if there is any new info on this. I did not purchase through GOG, but have experienced the same issues described by others when running the 15th Anniversary Edition on Windows 10. Everything looks fine in Windowed mode, but I get constant flickering when trying to run in fullscreen at any resolution.
Works fine here on Windows 10 x64. No actions required. G-Sync ON/OFF no difference.

I've got the same problem with my 15th Anniversary Edition. I used to be able to play it without problems on Win7 and now on Win10x64 screen flickers in Full-screen mode. Any solutions found yet?
Don't know about the 15th Anniversary edition, but I can confirm that the 20th anniversary edition works on Windows 10.
