Hey there, I have a Mini 9. I have been running Colin McRae 2005 (from GOG.com) in WinXP. It used to start running choppy in the game after about 5 minutes but since I tried setting GMA Boost to 400Mhz, it doesn't appear to have the same issues. Anyways, I'll add this to the list as I have it set up for now.

Colin McRae Rally 2005

Its a free download these days from Rockstar Games - hit up their website, sign your name, get an email link, download the 300MB file, and its all your's. GTA 1 is also free there.





Combat Mission Afrika Corps works great. Very cheap to buy, or download. The whole series ('Combat Mission') are brilliant, and very immersive.

GI Combat : Episode 1 Battle of Normandy requires Direct X 8.1 compatible 3D graphics card with 32MB RAM (integrated video and Voodoo cards are NOT supported) - does not work at all and errors with 'Could not initialise the 3D environment'.

_______________________________________________


Sudden Strike also works OK and needs nothing additional. It too uses Direct X 8.1, but does not seem to care about integrated video. Note: this is for SS 1 only, not the sequels. I don't have these games, nor have I tested them.




MAME 32 (see this thread http://www.mydellmini.com/forum/gma-...-mini-9-a.html )



I am in the uk and Rockstar's 'classic collection' needs a US address to get it to work. I then decided to download the game from another website, after install. the exe to run the game had an error 'Keyboard is not supported' eh? help pls? :S

Mini 10 uses GMA500, Mini 9 and 10v uses GMA950 which is better.

I saw unreal tournament 2004 in the first post (and checked out just a few random pages before the last one) and didn't notice UT game of the year edition.
in case anyone cares, not only does it run perfectly, I have it installed on my class 6 sdhc so it doesn't take up any ssd space at all. great game, and there are still people out there playing it online

is there a thread of games people have running off of sdhc cards? if not, maybe we should start one...
