I know this sounds spammy, but it's not an ad or anything else.

I have been trying to get Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri to work on my Win 7 laptop and all that happened was I was pulling out my hair in frustration - and given that I don't have much to begin with, it had to stop! :lol:

Instead of downloading patches and tweaking files to try and run awesome old XP games like Total Annihilation or Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri, I went over to Good Old Games (Google it yourself) and picked them up for a five bucks each.

Most of them are under 10 bucks and they don't need internet connections or monthly fees to play - it's just the like old days, pay a few bucks and play as much as you want, when you want.

Oh yeah it's a great site. They just got a bunch of old Lucasarts classics like TIE Fighter, X-Wing, and Sam and Max hit the Road. They also have System Shock 2 which is still fantastic and where I got my name from.

I run Vista 64 bit and play old games from around 2000 or so. I just changed the setting to run on the older Windows version. Think one ran on Windows 95. 8O

I'd be happy if I could find the XP version of Spider Solitaire and Free Cell. :lol:

Thanks for the info. I've been looking to play Duke Nukem for years and like you couldn't be bothered with the hassle.

While perusing the site I couldn't remember and old game called Wasteland 2 and wondered why it was 59.95 when everything else was under 10 bucks. Turns out they consider 2014 old.

Who knew. :lol:
