Hi,

I can’t run the majority of AGS games on Windows 7 32 bit. For instance I can not run games like Gemini Rue, The Shiva, and Al Emmo. I can run Resonance and the the Blackwell series. For the Blackwell series, I have to “Run as Administrator” though. Please help, I really want to play these great games. When I try to launch the game I can hear the music, but the screen is just black. What can I do?

Have you played around with the settings in the winsetup program for each of these games? First you should set it up to run as an administrator. Then run winsetup and try different graphic settings. (Direct3D/directDraw, different graphic filters and resolutions etc). If nothing else works try running the games in windowed mode.
