I dug out my old homeworld disk, wanting to really play it for the first time (I never really appreciated games as an art form kid, now I do, especially with the crap being churned out now). It apparently won't install on windows 7, but it could be a DVD drive error, it has been a bit of a problem, I'll admit. I tried it on an old XP machine but no dice there. I then installed XP mode on Win7 to try it there. There I get an error saying "couldn't initialize default render mode" (might not be exact message, but close)
All my Win7 and XP mode updates are installed, nvidia drivers up to date, I'm out of ideas. Please help? I'd really like to enjoy this game as an adult now that I can appreciate it.
