Game Wont Run

I figure anyone can reply to this thread and ill try to keep the list updated when I can. Try to keep game specific discussions in their own topics. However,if you feel that one of the games listed should be in a different category, let me know. The difference between Fully and Partially playable,is that Fully playable means it has playable frame rates through all or most of the game. Halo,for example,has playable frame rates on all multiplayer maps if you are alone, with 15 other people, not so much.

I just bought by mini9 so its like a month before I get it, in the mean time...

I did not see a response to Starwars Galaxies - anyone try?

Also, can someone try Civ IV - Colonization? (Pretty Please)

Thank you!

Also, is the catalog of playable games expanded by upgrades such as increase ram to 2GB and change out HD from stock to Runcore?

Thanks for the info...

Civ IV - Colonization works just fine. You just have to tweak the config file, the same as you do for the standard game.

Does anyone know where I find the config file or what I have to do to it? Thanks.

I know nobody cares about these games, but I've tried these games recently.

Dungeon Siege
Neverwinter Nights
The Sims 2: Deluxe
The Sims 2: IKEA
Thief Gold
Thief 2

Unfortuately, Microsoft killed ZoneMatch, so now there is even less reason to play DS.

Good to know NWN works. I may actually put it on the 10v and 9 both.

Alienware M11xR2 - Core i5 1.06 - 4 GB - 250 GB HD

FPS drops a little on the larger maps, but that's to be expected. The nice thing is that NWN runs in 1024x600 (and not boxed 800x600). Down side is that it's still a small gaming size and you need to have most of the inventories/quick meus minimized most of the time. I guess it just forces those of us into utilizing macros and hot keys more. Maybe that's a good thing.

It's an older game, but System Shock 2 runs very well.
