Thanks for letting me know about that.
I wonder if Draconis Entertaiment will be making their games Windows 7 compatible starting in 2009 as well.

Hi Trenton,
Yes, I have. I did manage to get ahold of the Windows 7 early beta and things are not looking too good for the majority of accessible games. The Windows 7 beta release I tested did not ship with any VB 6 support at all natively. That means the majority of the accessible games out there from GMA, Jim Kitchen, BSC, L-Works, DanZ Games, and so on are not going to work out of the box with Windows 7. I'm sorry to say unless those developers are willing to put the time and money into going to something like VB .NET. Those games are going to be difficult to get running on Windows 7, and you basically have to force a full VB 6 runtime install on there and hope it all works when Win 7 is finally released. On the bright side those developers who have walked away from VB and are using .NET technologies should be good to go. Rail Racer current demo worked fine on Windows 7 once you installed a copy of the managed DirectX libraries and .NET Framework 1.1. The 3D Volocity game by BPC Programs also worked ok. All of the USA Games products are being made Windows 7 ready. Beyond that have fun installing and fiddling with VB 6 libraries trying to get them to run properly.

Just wait til Windows Seven comes out.
Not liking the results for it. By the way, I hear the Windows Seven start up sound is quite strange.
From a gaming perspective, has anyone tried Windows Seven beta with any of
the blind friendly games out there yet?
