DESPERATE to get Z going on Windows 7 64bit !!!

Post by Phil K » 2010-11-21, 17:47

Could anyone - ANYONE please point me to a download of Z that will work on Windows 7 64bit ?
I used to have it AND Z steel soldiers - lost the first, and the 2nd doesn't work on Win7 64 now.
PLEASE could anyone help ?
A link to somewhere with a WORKING Z would be fabulous
And any help to get Steel Soldiers going would be hugely appreciated too.

Heading in the right direction....I can get it to open, but won't scroll, and I have to right click to send grunts etc, the menu won't open, and it's only two thirds of screen. And the gun fights seem to last three times as long as I remember before one wins
But hell, compared to before, thats a great improvement ! (Wasn't working before)

It is poor compared to the original. VERY poor
But I can't fathom out how you can get it to work but it just refuses to on mine.
Installed OK but won't run.

Yeah it was a shock when it worked. Mayve it might be your graphics card that might be stopping it from working. What graphics card do you have?

NVidea GeForce 9800 GT - hardly a crappy card ! :lol:
Not the fastest, but not too far behind the leading group, Id say
So it's a bit of a mystery.
