I found Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds on an ancient drive so, full of hopes of retro gaming, I cranked it up on Windows 7 (laptop, Core 2 duo, 32bit, 3(4)gig ram, intel 945 integrated graphics). It did cut-scenes (many happy memories, much expectation) and then BSOD'd (boo).
Tried compatibility settings but no dice - BSOD. Tried XP mode but it gives a DirectDraw error although the prerequisites app says all well.
I looked into the recent Gog re-release but the EXE has the same date as mine making me think it's the same release repackaged and so it will exhibit thr same problem.
Age of Empires behaves exactly the same (SWGB is a skin of AOA AFAIK?).
Anyone any ideas? Other than get a life perhaps?
