Forum rules


Please read the following rules before posting a download request in this area:

1. Don't post a request if you have under 10 posts as stated on the front page. If you do anyway, it will be deleted without further notice. This also applies to other members: If you see a request by someone with less than 10 posts and it hasn't been deleted yet, please don't reply to it.
2. Don't request for warez or any copyrighted software. Only betas (no matter how old or new) and finals of operating systems and applications that are at least 10 years old and therefore classified as abandonware are allowed to be uploaded to and shared on the BetaArchive FTP server.
3. If you have your own FTP server where you'd like other members to upload what you're looking for to, please don't post its login details in any open forum as that will probably lead to abuse. Post the login details in the Private Servers section instead.
4. Check that we don't already have the file on our FTP servers. If you don't have access to the FTP servers then ask someone who has (a moderator for example).

I've got the Vista Beta 1 Solitaire on XP - it seems to work well except for the help and statistics menus, so I removed those menu options using resource hacker.

The XP Solitaire is actually exactly the same as the Windows 3.1 one, save for a few new card backs and things. The new one has nice effects like when the cards are turned over, and the cards themselves are much bigger (the 3.1/XP ones are tiny, I suppose because the game is so old that it was designed so that the cards were the right size on the old 640x480 screens of the day) and higher resolution/antialiased. Once you've played the Vista one, it's horrible going back to the old one.

One problem I can see with this is that Vista only includes the new 3D-accelerated versions of the games, which run too slowly to really use on a low-spec-graphics PC, so there'll be no more sneaky Freecell for bored office workers unless their company upgrades all the PCs to ones containing proper graphics cards!
