Windows 7
« on: 2009-11-20, 10:14:12 PM »
Hey I just got Windows 7 installed on my computer. I tried to see if SGDK1 still works, and (after trying many compatibility options) sadly it doesn't. the closest i got was running "Chameleon Man" but the only thing that worked was the logo animation (most likely because its a avi file). All other error messages was automation error.

although something weird did happen, whenever i ran it in Win9x mode, it would close whenever i tried to open a file. the same thing in 2K, XP, and Vista modes ran normally. (odd)

hey! i just got SGDK1.4.6 to (almost) work on Windows 7. to run it, you need to install a feature called Virtual Machine from microsoft that lets you emulate past OS's like WinXP. the only problem is the screen resolution must be 640x480 to work, so games running at higher resolution cannot work. running games is also very jerky, but averages at about 40fps. ill post more details when i get some time
