    Tried to play WC2 the other day, needed compatibility mode. Was nowhere in the properties, or anywhere to be found. Any other way to get compatibility mode with Win7 (if it's not appearing in the properties tab)?

    Pretty much a bad joke, it's a pretty common "issue" with an easy fix.

    I can understand it failing on the operating system and the DirectX thing, it can't recognise the newer versions. Fair enough.

    But it also failed on memory, when it quite clearly states that your computer has 4GB, when the requirement is 8MB. I mean what, you have too much? 'Woah no, hold your horses, that's just TOO MUCH POWER.'

    Did the game really not understand that 4GB (4000MB) was more than 8 MB?

    Probably because 4GB is 4096 MB.

    I'm going to learn how to use DOSBox at some point. Got a ton of old games I really loved playing back in the day, that I'd like to break out now.

    When that game was released, RAM in the orders of gigabytes was unheard of. Have you considered that it does not know what "GB" would mean in the context of RAM and simply errs on the side of caution?

    And yes, machines much more powerful than what applications were designed for can cause numerous problems, thus should not be supported by the developer.
