This is my very first post on Windows Vista Forums and I am eager to get into this thread!
First off....Windows Vista Ultimate.....is the very best you can buy for gaming.
This features the 64bit OS version which can process 14GB of RAM at top speeds you can find in a new OS. I would definitely recommend this OS for gaming and none other.
Now on to the main part of my thread: Compatibility Gaming! This is the most discussed issue for gamers across the US. The problem is how do you get games to work (specifically older games) on Windows Vista Ultimate? Well, there are 3 solutions. 1: You could wait until the company of the game makes a OS patch for the game although that could take a while. 2: You could go into the game files and put the game into compatibility mode for your OS. And 3: You could revert back to an older OS that works for your game. Which one would you choose? I would choose #2.
They are always going to make games work on a newer OS. Lets take the game Lord of The Rings Battle for Middle Earth 1&2. Electronic Arts (EA) has already made a patch for those two that will have 85% more chance of running on Vista! If doesn't work then it's the type of computer hardware you are using. The hardware would 100% guarantee be outdated! In that case just get more recent hardware!? It's not that difficult! With a bit of research, common sense, and problem solving skills you can get gaming compatibility issues out of your hair!
I hope this thread has helped a couple of you out there!
