Hi Bo,

I hope you have success. That is too far back to remember if it's possible.

I cranked it up on my WinPro7 a few weeks back and it worked fine. I didn't have to anything special. Just stuck the disc into the computer and it started right up.

PS: I bought that game probably 15 years ago. And actually I did do one thing. I patched it after the initial re-installation.

Hi Jagger, I downloaded WitP from matrix and it works fine but it was free so I could care less, but to pay $19 for Uncommon Valor ouch You said you had no problems right?

Bo,

I liked Uncommon Valor way back in the day.
It was my first Matrix game and lead me into WITP and a bunch of others.

Honestly, from what I remember I can't see paying the cost for it here in 2017.

Like all games it has good and bad points. I can't remember either after all these years.

I hope you wind up happy.

If memory serves, right clicking on the UV icon, then going into properties and selecting the comparability drop-down list to XP or later should work.

Did you buy it yet, Bo? As I may have a boxed copy I'd mail you for free. (I like using my client's Fedex account!)

I probably last played it on XP. It was a simplified version of WITP of course. But not that simple. Worth $19 if you are breaking into the game system. Otherwise, WitP AE when it goes on sale again and like me start with small scenarios.

I was going to rosseau, but was not sure of it playing on my OS windows 7 home premium 64 bit. If you send it to me I would deeply appreciate it, and I will be eternally grateful and will agree with all your posts without reservation for at least 1 year Maybe Will e-mail you.

Hi Joe D, Joe Dimaggio maybe Do you remember what the OS systems are on the game.

P.S. Just looked it up Joe last OS mentioned was XP, what I am concerned about is my computer has 64 bit OS. Maybe someone can help me do a work around if I get the game.

I've had win7-64 for 7 years now and I'm sure I've fired UV up during that time without problem.

edit: just fired up the Coral Sea scenario and ran 4 turns. Works fine without any changes to settings. Be aware that your video card driver can affect things.

Just to clarify, the box will cost you more $10, so the final price is $29.95.

When I got Sovereignty, I had to update my video driver to get it to work. I have heard of cases where older games wouldn't run with newer drivers but that doesn't seem to be the case here. I also have NVIDIA (GTX 750Ti).

Yes I understood that, my question was what do I get for the extra ten dollars. Why can't a game this old be sold for less?

Bo,

Look at the product description to see what you get. I think it's just a box with the CD, maybe a manual, but check it out.

bo,

I was a 'plankowner' with UV, WiTP and now WiTP:AE. The latter has held the test of time well, but not perfectly.

UV is simply dated. I would very strongly recommend you move on rather than trying to retrofit an outdated game design and engine for an operating system that it probably won't run on very well.

Of course, that's my opinion. You're welcome to spend your money in whatever fashion you wish, even if that's chasing performance in 17 year old games.

The biggest issue with UV (I played solo and a couple of PBEMs) is this IMO:

You cannot adjust the maximum range of your planes. This is particularly dangerous for your bombers, especially the very long range and fragile Betties aka the mighty ship killers.

They might end up attacking their target without escort and get slaughtered. There's no way you can stop this. And yet I had a lot of fun with this game.

Jumping to AE is the best option but to each his own.

UV runs fine on Win 7. I like the game. I bought it at release and loved it. It's far more manageable that WITP:AE.
