      How i said previously games don't sell digitally. Legally first game you can get as USAF sponsored for free here. http://www.gamewatcher.com/mods/the-suffering-mod/full-game-sponsored-by-the-us-air-force But i don't know will it work because i guess ad servers don't exist anymore. For me this version just hang out in process. Retail CD can launch "launcher" but games it's just black screen for on one moment and then desktop.

      People keep playing on modern hardware and OS, so it's a Intel driver problem. I tried everything, compatibility, drivers, but no changes.
