    Most of those are older games, or games I don't play anyway. I still have SP1 installed.

    ya it&#39;s fixable though with a patch...look at the bottom (by the time u read this it may be the middle or something) of the thread where the guy says all his p2p programs are freezing for a link to a patch.

    Max Payne 2 works for me.

    Edit: As does KOTOR.

    It&#39;s probably worth noting that that isn&#39;t a list of games that won&#39;t work, more list of games that behave differently.
