    Default Gaming On Vista 5365

    Hi,

    As a gamer and a Vista fan... i'll give you guys some feedback of my testing!
    PS: This time i only tried to play the games with Daemon tools 3.33 and also with DT 3rd party tools

    My config:
    MSI NEO 2 LS with Pentium 4c @ 3200mhz
    1Go Ram DDR400 ( 4x256mo )
    XFX Nvidia Geforce 6600 GT AGP
    160Go HITACHI 7200rpm 8mb ( C: )
    Freecom F-1 CDRW 52 ( E: )
    Daemon Tools 3.33 ( D: )
    All Games will be running in 1024x768!

    Drivers:
    Original Vista DirectX Drivers ( DirectX9c or DirectX10 ?)
    Original Vista Nvidia Drivers ( 87.45 )
    All Vista Available Updates

    Games Tested:

    - Half Life 2 ( Daemon 3.33 + Securom loader V1.2 )
    This game works really great ( Fast enough... not buggy )

    - Farcry V1.33 ( Daemon 3.33 )
    Works ok but framerate is a little below the minimum
    With HDR and 4xAA activated, it runs around 30fps

    - F.E.A.R 1.03 ( Daemon 3.33 + Securom loader V1.2 )
    Same as Farcry... runs around 35fps

    - Tiger Woods 06 ( Daemon 3.33 + SD Hide 4 )
    Runs without problems ( Good game speed )

    - Sims 2 Open For Business ( Daemon 3.33 + SD Hide 4 )
    Really runs like on XP

    - Toca Race Driver 3
    No emulation possible...! ( Daemon 3.33 is not good enough )
    Vista message informing that the game is imcompatible
    with Vista ( Even if i tried to play from the original DVD! )

    - Gt Legends
    No Emulation possible...!
    Same remarks as Toca 3 ( Funny because i could make it
    run from the original dvd in Vista 5342 )

    - Prince Of persia ( Two Thrones )
    Same as above ( But this one plays from the original DVD! )
    ( Average framerate and a little buggy )

    - StillLife ( Daemon 3.33 not good enough )
    Plays great like xp from the original DVD!

    - NBA Live 06 ( Daemon 3.33 + SD Hide 4 )
    No problems at all! Great gameplay!


    PS: This 5365 version of Vista is definitely improved in framerate speed for the majority of my own games! Compatibility is changing from one build to the other! But Starforce 3 Games are nearly impossible to play even from the original DVD's or CD's.

    I wanna say a big thank you to the team for the creation of this Securom loader V1.2... Able to play F.E.A.R and Half Life 2 from emulation thanks to that little progy!

    RESUME:
    Even that Vista Build are getting very stable and more and more compatible.... it is not like playing on XP with most of the games i tried.

    Hope i could help some people!

    Sincerely
    SFkilla23

    Default Question

    Hi all. I have a quick question. The Beta 2/RC0 of Windows Vista is due this month, so I was wondering if you will add support for it. I've read in some other threads that you will wait for a more "stable" version of the OS before you release a compatible version of DT. I think, since this build will be available to everyone, not just the beta testers, that you could consider it stable.
    Thank you.

    Try using Daemon-Tools 3.33.

    Well, I tried the 3.33 version, and it works fine, but as I needed more virtual drives, I installed Virtual CD 7, and it works great, but I don't think there's any emulation.
    Right now I am using the 5381 build, just installed about 12 hours ago. It's the same thing as Beta 2 / RC0, and there are huuuge improvements, but I will let you discover them for yourself.
    Thanks for the tip, and I really hope there will be Vista support in DT soon.
