Looking for a certain type of single player rpg game
« on: January 23, 2012, 11:42:51 AM »
Is there an easy enough single player rpg where I can choose to play a villainess that is compatible w/ win7?  Something like DC Universe Online, only not as hard & I don't have to worry about other players?

You can try Bethesda RPGs, they let you be a tremendous asshole. Fallout games even have a karma system to track how evil you are.

So lets see if I have this right. You want a single player, third person, open world, cake walk, action RPG that allows you to play as an evil chick. Hmmm, that's a tough one. Other than the Bethesda titles already mention nothing really comes to mind.

Ok thanks, I do have TES III & IV.  Didn't buy V yet, as it is too bloody for me & I haven't quite done much w/ IV yet.  I will look into the 2 KOTOR games.

EDIT:  I looked into the KOTOR games & KOTOR I for sure, is definitely not compatible for Win7.  II I think can be worked out, but it would be frustrating for me to figure out.  I wish there was something that could be compatible w/ Win7???

Install game -> Make a shortcut -> Right click shortcut -> Properties -> Compatibility* -> tick "Run in Compatibility mode"* -> select Windows XP sp3. If it wont launch, try a different mode until it boots properly. Presto, you can play KotOR.

*I'm guessing what the English names for these functions are, but they should loosely resemble my translations.

KotOR runs fine on Win7 for me.  Win7 Pro 32-bit.  Got the Steam version.

Just to make this clear, almost all windows games, be it a game made for win XP or even win98 will run on Windows 7. There are just two things you need to know. How to enable compatibility mode, which I already explained, and how to cap fps to keep some games from running too fast (I usually do this by forcing v-synch on at 60hz).For example, I have launched the original Deus Ex and Hitman 2 this way, and they both run fine. In most cases, win XP games will run out of the box on Win 7 without having to do any of these things.
