Hi,

I've been searching many blogs and forums regarding Outlaws on Win7.

I couldn't find nothing on how to play it without the CD. It's really annoying to insert the CD everytime I want to play it.

And I wasn't able to find a walkthrough on how to play it on Win 7. I tried to copy, but CD is asked.

Can anyone help me here?

Hey all. I just found my old Outlaws discs. I am running Windows 7 64-bit, so I had to bypass the install and copied the OUTLAWS folder off the disc straight to my desktop, as other sites have suggested. The first half of the main campaign, all the historical missions, and the multiplayer work fine. But when it comes time to switch discs in the campaign, I get a "could not load level" after putting the second disc in.

Does anyone know how to solve this problem? Or has anyone found a workaround?

Try killing explorer process. It works with color issues in some games.

Look this link for more information:

The game itself will work on x64 Windows 7 (and vista no doubt) however the installer fails to function.

To get the game running;

Insert game disk one.
Go to, Start -> Computer, right click on your CD/DVD drive, and click Open.
Copy the folder named "OUTLAWS" - this folder contains the game executable, config files, sounds, etc, and paste it anywhere on your computer.
In the OUTLAWS folder there will be an executable called "OLWIN", double click that and the game should run. You'll need the CD left in the drive of course.

You can also run the game straight from the disk.

The game itself runs OK, the movies have incorrect colours and some textures in-game have seem like the colour has been inverted/colour artifacts.

EDIT: Forgot to mention the game runs perfectly in windowed mode, but I run it full screen as I prefer to use a mouse to look around, rather than just using the keyboard.

This tread also offers a 32-bit installer: http://vogons.zetafleet.com/viewtopic.php?t=22280&sid=7937f 66e70f0bd549cb6375ff8a50239

This sounds like a problem that was discussed recently here: http://forums.lucasarts.com/thread.jspa?threadID=143885&tst art=0 . Basically, the installer is not compatible with Windows 7, but the actual game might be. While in that thread they linked to discussions of how to copy the game files directly from the CD for the game Jedi Knight, if you can do something similar and directly copy the game files for Outlaws, you may be able to get the game up and running.

Agreed it should, however it does not. There's a message about a 32 vs 64 bit application.

i haven't dived that far deep into it, but it's far from a no-brainer to get Outlaws installed onto Windows 7.

Any of the windows games, should work on Windows Seven. I know World of Warcraft works on the Windows Seven, so I'm pretty sure that Outlaws would work as well.

Is Outlaws ever going to be available to run on Windows 7.
It was fun to play but since I had to update my computer doe to unforeseen circumstances, I can no longer run some of my favorite games. Is there a solution.
