According to previous stuff said shouldnt all DX9 games be software emulated on Vista? If thats the case then its already emulated and that would be the problem with some of your hiccups. I believe thats what the Win XP compat is for. (Like 95 compat in XP ect) Idk, sounds like you deff need to wait for SP1 and more compatability before using Vista.

AFAIK.

Wild Tangent don't make games, but I may be wrong. Don't think they're the sort of games you wanna rush out to the Game store and buy anyway. The last experience that I had with Wild Tangent was a screensaver that cr@pped up my Win98 rig.

Who said they were

The article even starts with

Quote:
small development studios and individual programmers of casual games: St. John claims that at least nine out of ten games do not work with Vista.
Unless you're saying because they aren't an industry leader, their views don't count or they don't matter?

Everyone's got to start somewhere

Yep, that be the ones. Strangely enough if you look really hard on there it says "Windows Vista Compatible"

What I'm saying is that we don't hear Epic or CryTek complaining about this, with their huge projects that are far more complicated than the simple rubbish Wild Tangent put out
