I finally got everything up and running on Vista Home Premium x64. I was a bit aprehensive about the compatibility of the OS, but so far it's been good. I've been able to get about 98% of the games I own installed. Here is a screenshot of the games I have installed:

You have all them games installed on the 64bit version of Vista and they all run and work fine. even Quake do you have Need for Speed Porche.

I don't have Porche Unleashed, but I do have NFS 3 and High Stakes. Those were two games I couldn't get working correctly. I believe Porche Unleashed uses the High Stakes engine.

I don't think there are many I have that would be considered horrible. Sure Diakatana and MOO3 may be on the cusp of horribleness, but they do have their good sides. There are also games I have that have been hyped up big time before release and then considered average by many reviews after release. Some would consider those games horrible, but I find actually good. I just finished Advent Rising on Saturday and consider it a good game.

I can't belive you got games like quake to work,on the 64bit version of Vista,I heard they would work with the 32bit version of vista.I heard any game based on a 16bit would not work at all on the 64bit version.

Your hard drive must be huge! :-)
Right now I have Vampire-Bloodlines installed in Vista and I am trying to get Splinter Cell-Double Agent to work right. I have a lot more games installed in XP and will gradually shift them over to Vista in time.

I can't get Splinter Cell Double Agent installed. It keeps giving me a CRC error and says only low resolution textures will be available. I just cancel it after that.

Anyway, I only have 12 games installed so far. I've been taking it slowly and I've also been slowed down trying to get some installed properly (like I mention above).

CRC errors end up being bad media. could be either DVD or hard drive.

But it installs fine under XP. That's why it has me stumped.

Since I switched to Vista I don't have any plans to install older games again, except GTR2. The only installed game right now is Live for Speed.

that makes no sence at all

Supreme Commander

I didn't say anything is wrong with them, per se...

"It's not you, It's me": How I break up with older games ;)

I just don't find entertainment value in something that has been improved upon and most games have.
