Played most games and wanted to download some old ones, but there are various warnings about old games not working on new computers. Have these problems been fixed and is it safe to play them

I don't entirely know, but I have heard of people who have.

If they don't work, try turning off the game's sound (not the computer's).

And I suggest that the game's speed be at medium or lower (not the highest setting).

It depends upon whether you have a Mac or Windows computer. Most of the Exile games are OS 9 for Mac computers except that Khoth has a carbonized OS X version for Blades of Exile so you have to play them in Classic mode or use an emulator like Basilisk. For Windows computers there shouldn't be as much of a problems if you have the games open with Windows XP mode.

I think you mean Windows 95 mode. :P

Exile runs fine under Windows XP. Under Vista, you must switch the compatability mode to Windows XP.

I had to set E1 to 95 when I was playing it in XP.

Must be system specific. E1 runs fine on both my XP machines.

Look the Windows versions I've run Exile games under were Windows 3.1 and XP so I haven't as much experience with them.

It really depends upon the machine in use.
