It's been awhile since I have come to this site, but I had a very specific question.  I managed to snag a copy of WOTW for PC for cheap but I wanted to know if it will run at all on Vista 64 bit?  Has anyone tried it yet on Vista and if so could you share some info with me on this?  It would be greatly appreciated.

 

By the way,  I did get the PSone WOTW game and let me tell you, I was not disappointed with it at all.  Totally worth getting, especially for the Thunderchild stage, which is my favorite part of the whole game.  If anyone sees this gem, grab it ASAP because it is pretty hard to find these days anywhere.

I use Vista, there is a compatibility mode you can use to play older games. After you have installed the game right click on the icon you use to load up the game, go to properties, compatibility then change it to an older version of windows then click apply.

Just fished my game out of the loft to play on laptop (using vista).

Tried changing the compatability mode after installation but the game doesn't want to load in any mode.

I have just recently got a new vista laptop. And just 15 mins ago I installed JW TWOTW PC game on the vista laptop. I tried all of the compatability modes. It did not work. But, the patch for the XP works for it!

I'm using windows 7 and can't find a compatibility mode that works.

 

What's this about a patch?

best of luck... I've tried everything and cant get it to work. I even sent payment for that unofficial game disc that's meant to have patches and editors on... no word back and no disc.
