had to run the setup in compatibility mode, then patch it, then run the game in XP SP2 mode, which is funny as I could never get the game to run right in XP..

also had to check the boxes for "disable visual themes". "disable desktop compsition" and "disable display scaling pm high DPI settings"

Lol, I hate you so much right now... I could just kiss you lol...

I so can't wait for W7 OEM to come out just so I can play DK2 again! lol...

What patches did you run?

Yeh, I couldn't EVER get it to run in WXP... It'd crash after a few minutes...

flat install which on my disk puts it at 1.3, then ran the 1.3 to 1.7 update. also installed all 3 bonus packs.

my disc has 1.3 to 1.6 on it, but if you run that, you can't run the 1.3 to 1.7

I thought you were running W7 already?

so far it seems to run great, not having any of the issues with sound or crashes and such like I did on XP.

it's taking me a bit to get used to the controls and moving the map, etc.

I am only running W7 on the spare computer that my son plays on, just to test it out; waiting to put W7 on my main computer until the dell oem goes out next month.

Lol yeh the new ui anoys me; I usually always roll back to the "windows classic" skin, but can't really see doing that in W7 lol...

may be a driver issue, I'm using an nvidia 9800 and other than the fact it is set to 800x600,so it does look a bit pixalated, it looks and plays fine

have to start the DKII.exe in compatibility mode, winXP SP2 or 3, other than that I didn't have to do anything special

actually, I'm running it on 1024x768, thats the max it will go.

are you getting the black blocks during the cinematic? or does it continue into actual game play? try installing the windows 7 codec pack from betanews

if I a remember correctly, that ati card isn't much of an actual game card, more designed for multi media, my dad bought one and I had to return it cause it was junk.

I really don't know what else to tell ya, I had no issues installing it or running it, just had to set XPSP3 mode, and away she went.

I was just browsing the gallery feature to see how it worked and noticed the picture of Dungeon Keeper 2. I loved this game! I may have to revisit it now that I know people have managed to get it working under windows 7. I wish they made a DK3. frown

well, I can play it, Gizmo is still having issues. I think it may be the video card, but no way to to be sure yet.
I was bummed that DK3 never "saw the light of day" either, I was so looking forward to it.

Now I play WoW. not quite the same, but fulfills my OCD issues.
Fallout3 was/is a lot of fun.

RE Wow, I don't think I could get into a MMORPG because my schedule is too erratic to be accountable to a group of real people in a game. tongue You have to have allies or join a "clan" to get anywhere in it, right? Maybe I misunderstand how it works. Man, I feel old. I prefer to sacrifice creatures in a lonely, desolate dungeon. grin

get the expansion packs if you haven't, I can probably send them to you ;-) I have played through it as the "good guy", I want to buss through it again as evil.

I do have issues with it in Win7, randomly locks up, and I can't play the anchorage expansion at all, which really sucks. was hoping they would patch it but I guess they aren't interested.

they are making an MMORPG out of it, I can't wait.

you can play wow solo, just need to be in a group to access the dungeons/instances, they have 5 man, 10 and 25. used to haev 40 man raids, those were the days, lol - MC RAIDERS! (inside joke)
but they have a new improved "looking for group" tool that makes it a lot easier to pick up a random group on the fly to get in to a dungeon.

if you enjoy solo play, then I'm betting your a diablo person, I'm looking forward to Diablo 3, the shots I have seen are awesome, but it looks like it will be at least another year before it is out.

I use a monitor for a TV up here, I decided a 22" wide screen was better than the a little 13" tube, and the new media center in Win7 is slick, and I have a dual tuner card, so I get the free digital channels too, sunday football in HD is nice.
