    I was wondering if we could start to compile a list of Games that work on
    Windows Vista... As this would make it easier for many of us..

    I have.

    Zoo Tycoon 2*
    Half-Life 2*
    Civilization 4*
    Battlefield 2
    Rise of Legends
    Quake III Arena***
    Unreal Tournament 2003***
    Black and White 2
    Warcraft 3**
    World of Warcraft
    Ghost Recon Advanced Warfigher
    Sim City 4*
    Guild Wars
    Call of Duty 2

    *Problems, on my setup I had to run them into a window first to prevent them
    from crashing, I'm assuming a video driver bug not letting them pick up
    resolution details. Others have mentioned lowering the desktop resolution
    to the same as their default start-up resolution resolves it too.

    **Works fine with retail version, but latest patch breaks sound.

    ***Mouse acceleration seems to be turned on.

    That's the list so far. :cool:

    Starcraft is running good but patches need to be run as administrator
    otherwise you'll get an error.

    Add Fifa 2006. Works like a charm, but desktop resolution has to be changed
    to 1024*768 before the game is run.

  12. GTA San Andreas works quite well, not perfect, some gfx glitches with
    vertical lines, but runs without slowdowns on my system.

    freezes and crashes..but have also had 20+ hours of excellent playtime under
    Vista..both versions.
