What graphics mode are you running it under? I can't get DirectDraw mode to work on Windows 7, what with the system pallete nonsense, but on Direct3D I get some fairly regular slowdown in big battles and/or when I've got the automap open. It's playable, but a bit annoying...

Just thought I'd add that Funcom's "The Longest Journey" and the new Aliens vs Predator Classic 2000 both work fine on the 10v. Worth noting that the AvP Classic 2000 also includes widescreen support unlike the original release so you can play it in 1024 x 600 just fine

I'm using Windows 7 on Dell mini 9. I was so exited to play Neverwinter Nights (first one) and installed it, but it's almost unplayable. It basically lags a lot even in 800 x 600 resolution. (Even movie's voice doesn't smoothly continue.) I also turned off every effect but still lagging, very unplayable. I feel Windows 7 works pretty well on my mini 9, though. Is it a compatibility issue between the game and the OS? Do you use Windows XP on mini 9?

edit: I gave it up for my mini 9 but I got it for my macbook and it works fine... As I've seen a dramatic difference in performance, I think it must be a compatibility issue, though...

Yeah it'd be nice if the OS compatibility was listed as well. If there's significant issues with getting a lot of these running on Win7 as opposed to XP it might be an excuse to tri-boot XP/Win7/OSX when I get my 10v.

Wanted to drop in and say that Motocross Madness 2, a 2000 game (8.8 on Gamespot), works great on my 1GB, 8GB SSD Mini 9. There's even a 1024x600 resolution setting built into the options. The graphics look pretty good on the Mini 9 screen, esp. for a 10yr old game.

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

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3

It runs very well. And i think that even THPS4 may run. Anyway, my dell is 1.6Ghz and 1Gb ram; the games on the list are meant to that or to 2gb?
