Advice needed for Windows 7

Recommended Posts

I have had Windows XP for my operating system for quite some time now.

 

I want to upgarde to Windows 7. But I have Lock on 1.02 and Black Shark (DVD).

 

a) Can I run the original Lock On in Win 7?

b) Do I have to do anything special for Black Shark except Deactivate - Reactivate?

 

Looking forward to buy FC 2.0 and DCS A10 but both on dvd.

 

If any body can give me advice on these matters I would greatly appreciate it.

 

Thank You

a) Should not be a problem as far as I know, though I haven't tried it myself.

b) Deactivate DCS:BS, install new OS, install DCS:BS, patch, activate.

I play nowadays the good-old LOMAC 1.02 on W7x64 but I planning to buy FC1.

I read many places that FC1 has problems with W7 (starforce protection?) and cannot be run on it...

 

Can someone or ED confirm: is FC1 run on W7x64 systems without any problems?

 

Thanks.

 

(And no, I don't want to buy FC2 at the moment, actually, LOMAC1.02 is still good for me, but perhaps the FC1 would be better)

Dnnzed FC1 fully patched works perfectly on windows 7 64.

 

When vista first came out if I recall, starforce caused problems then, but only because that version of starforce wasnt compatible with vista, but within days an update to fc1 was available that fixed the problem.

 

Basically you will or should not have any problems running fc1 on win7 64.

but, if you have upgraded your OS, i am assuming you have a new PC? then get FC2.0. you will not regret it!

 

i also did a "gotchas" guide a while back which may help;
