Hi there. 64 bit Windows and 64 bit internet are completely different. One is the architecture in which the Windows platform was written, putting it very simply the amount of work the operating system can do at one time, the other is the speed at which you can receive broadband signals.

Hope this helps

    What would cause the game and my computer to not be compatible?

  • Kevin Penn May 18, 2011

    If it is an old game then it would not have been written to perform properly on a 64 bit operating system. The only thing I can suggest to try and get it working is to right click the game icon, click properties and then select the check box that says "Run in compatibility mode for Windows XP Service Pack 3". If that does not work then it basically means the program was not supposed to ever work on a 64 bit system and probably never will.

How can I load the 32 bit program on a 64 bit machine?


Hi,

I will assume you are using Windows Vista or Windows 7, which is a newer operating system then what the game was intended for. Microsoft Windows has a Compatibility feature you can use to run games in Compatibility mode. Once you install the game, you can right click on the game Icon(should be on your desktop) then choose properties. In the properties go to the Compatibility Tab and click Run program in Compatibility Mode and in the drop down box try selecting Windows Xp(any service pack). Also check the Run Program As Administrator. In some cases you can get the older games to run.

Monopoly platinum collection cd will not work. It states that we do not have indeo codec for windows 7. It says contact hasboro for this info. Any suggestions


Actually Indeo Codec isn't supported for Microsoft Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Mac operating systems.A long time ago they were supported but the Ligos Corp discontinued using it.Here's an article about the Indeo Codec http://www.ligos.com/index.php/home/support/indeosupport .Indeo Codecs are not compatible with any 64-bit version of Windows operating systems. Ligos decided that when Windows 7 was born that Indeo Codecs were no longer going to be supported. Ligos asked that anyone that had the Indeo Codec contact Microsoft support http://support.microsoft.com/ to get the latest version of Indeo Codecs that may already have been installed on computers.But remember that Indeo Codecs IS NOT supported/compatible with any version of Windows 7. Ligos Corp only distributes the Indeo software for legacy applications still requiring its use in Windows 95, 98, ME, XP and NT/2000 operating systems.Personally I have never had a problem playing a game on my husband's Windows 7 64 bit laptop but we've always used a certain codec pack http://www.softpedia.com/get/Multimedia/Video/Encoders-Converter-DIVX-Related/ACE-Mega-CoDecS-Pack.shtml .When you install the codec pack pick the professional version installation of it....it gives you everything all the codec you need to watch/play anything.Make sure every type of codec/file association is checked.Scroll all the way down until you see something about antivirus...you may uncheck that...if you keep it checked.after the software install it will run a virus scan.The option is up to you.GOOD LUCK and have fun claiming Monopoly properties. :)

If you need to open ports on your router just follow the manual. If you need one just add a comment and I'll get right back to you. If this doesn't work do the same. Go slow and follow instructions. This should fix your problems. Keep track of what you do so it can be undone to start fresh just in case this doesn't work but it should.

Firewalls
GameSpy Arcade is 100% reliant on your Internet connection being fully functional. The same holds true for any games that you want to play online against other people. Firewalls and proxy servers are designed to block your Internet connection in order to minimize the chances that your computer will be accessed (or hacked!) by "unwanted visitors." They also have the unfortunate side-effect of disabling many of the things you might want to do online -- like play games -- since these activities depend on your PC making an unimpeded connection to other computers. Therefore, if you are using a firewall or proxy, Arcade may not function properly nor will you be able to download and install all of the files that you need in order to use the software to play games online.

Connecting to different places online requires access through "ports" in your PC's Internet connection, and firewalls and proxies will close certain ports for your protection. This is not always necessary, but you as the firewall/proxy owner are the only one who can open those ports. We can't do it for you - but we can give you some tips on how to configure your firewall / proxy to allow Arcade to work properly.

What is a firewall or proxy?
Firewalls and proxies are software programs or pieces of hardware designed to protect your computer and/or network from Internet intruders. Some of these are:
  • Windows XP Firewall
  • Norton Internet Security
  • Tiny Personal Firewall
  • Zonealarm
  • Sygate (proxy)
  • Wingate (proxy)
  • Internet Connection Sharing aka ICS - provided by Windows 98SE and higher (proxy)
  • Linksys Routers (hardware firewall)
  • D-Link Routers (hardware firewall)
  • Cisco Routers (hardware firewall)

Working Around the Firewall / Proxy

If you are behind a firewall/proxy and are able to change its settings, Arcade needs the following TCP ports open in order to function:
  • 6667 (IRC)
  • 3783 (Voice Chat Port)
  • 27900 (Master Server UDP Heartbeat)
  • 28900 (Master Server List Request)
  • 29900 (GP Connection Manager)
  • 29901 (GP Search Manager)
  • 13139 (Custom UDP Pings)
  • 6515 (Dplay UDP)
  • 6500 (Query Port)

    Disabling firewalls will not work
    Unfortunately, in most cases, firewalls/proxies cannot simply be disabled in order to allow you to use Arcade and your game. Disabling the firewall / proxy will not open the necessary ports. It will simply shut down the firewall/proxy and leave the ports closed. Also, many factors may conflict with your firewall: Internet Connection Sharing, the use of more than one firewall, or your operating system may all cause conflicts that keep you from enjoying Arcade.
  • Special notes to Windows XP users:
    Windows XP has a built-in firewall. If you are using 3rd party firewalls/proxies with Windows XP, you will have to consult both the firewall/proxy developer and Microsoft to determine their compatibility with one another. You will also need to speak to your game's developer in order to determine the game's compatibility with WindowsXP, its firewall and your 3rd party firewall/proxy.


    Disabling / Setting Permissions on Specific Firewall Programs

    We do not recommend disabling your firewall. Disabling it will not make it open up the ports it has already closed. Instead, you need to configure it to allow access to Arcade. This is usually called "giving permission," and can be accomplised quickly by following these steps:

  • Windows XP Service Pack 2 -- The built-in firewall that comes bundled with Windows XP will affect two areas of your Arcade experience: 1) Arcade itself (including the login process, using PlayerSpy, chat, using the Download Manager and playing games) and 2) Hosting any parlor or peer-to-peer games. In order to use Arcade and play games properly with Windows XP, you should follow these steps:

    1) Unblocking GameSpy Arcade During Login: Click the "Unblock" button in the Windows XP firewall prompt the first time you attempt to log into Arcade atfer installing Service Pack 2

    2) Unblocking GameSpy Arcade via Control Panel: If you forgot to click "Unblock" in Step 1, or if you want to be ahead of the curve, you can configure the XP firewall to unblock Arcade via the Windows Control Panel. To do this: Click on Start > Settings > Control Panel > Windows Firewall. In the Windows Firewall menu, Click on the Exceptions tab. If GameSpy Arcade is not listed, Click on the Add Program button, find GameSpy Arcade on the list of available programs and click the OK button.

    3) Unblocking Your Games: This can be done in one of two ways: a) Either wait for Windows to prompt you to unblock the game and click the Unblock button (this usually happens the first time you attempt to host a game after installing Service Pack 2, or; b) Use the Windows Control Panel to add the game to your list of Exceptions, using the same method listed in step 2 above.

    4) Unblocking Ports: You can take the unblocking process a step further by instructing Windows to open the Firewall to all ports used by GameSpy Arcade and most of its supported games. To do this: Click on Start > Settings > Control Panel > Windows Firewall. From the Windows Firewall Menu, click on the Exceptions tab, then click on the Add Ports button. From the Add Ports Menu, enter a port from the list of ports at the top of this Arcade support page. Be sure to indicate whether this is a UDP or TCP port (the list above should indicate which it is).
