Default Popcap games - 12-12-2008, 12:43 PM

Any one have any of these on the M9? I installed one and it seems ok so far.

Peggle Nights plays fine. I have had no issues with it so far.

I'm currently running:

Zuma Deluxe
Bejeweled 2
Luxor 2
Luxor 3
Bricks of Egypt

Not all PopCap, but all the same kind of thing.

The Mini 9 seems well suited to these games if you're using an external mouse.

The main thing I learned was steer clear of hardware acceleration or high res settings, especially on Bejeweled 2, as it errors out of the program and does something to the registry that even re-installing the game won't fix.

I run 'em at 800x600 where I have the choice and they all run perfectly with no hiccups, even when things get busy on screen.
