Gothic II under Windows 7?

Anyone get it to work(G2 w/NoTR). I can install just fine, but when I go to run the game, the process it launches just sits there and nothing happens.

Did you try running the "compatibility mode"?
does win7 have that?
Just right click the gothic2 icon on the desktop and choose properties- compatibility mode will be in there somewhere, just select XP should work fine there if not choose the other.

Hope this will work for you.

Tried that, tried everything.

Finally got it to work by using a German exe 'fix' patch over on World of Gothic. It replaces the .exe and the version shows as 2.6 (fix) rather than 2.7. No problems so far.

And now it's back to not starting again. I'm not sure what the problem is here, since there seem to be other people running it fine on Windows 7.
