While I have heard about the Stranger's Wrath laughter stuff (hell, I can't run it on this laptop without slowdown aplenty), the Abe's Oddysee/Exoddus thing is bunk. I have the Steam versions on here, working, under Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. I streamed completing both 100% about a year ago now.
Well, they don’t work for me, and I found a post in the Steam forums where it was basically explained that they try to launch at 640x480 in 256 colors mode and most systems don’t support that anymore.
There was a fix listed; a program you download that forces the games to run in windowed mode, but it seems absolutely silly that they’d sell you a broken game and expect you to fix it on your own time. That’s the kind of stuff you expect if you pirate a game, and what you pay money to avoid.
