  1. Hi :)

    Well you can forget any 16 bit games like 95 or 98....

    The others you will have to try compatability mode, but I doubt you will have a lot of luck apart from maybe the XP games...

    All the best Brett :)
  2. This is some info I think you would like to read about. There is some info on how to play really old games like dos types. In this program there is the link so you have to scroll down a bit to find it.

    What I just said is in the first link. The rest of the links are info on how and what you need to do. I hope this helpss and good luck to you.

  3. Compatibility mode should cover you on most games for 2000-VISTA & XP. I agree with the above posters, you will have more trouble with the 16-bit games - unless you are running something like DOS Box.
