I’ll keep post updated if any changes happen.
Recently last officially supported version was [27.4.2]
. But from now on we can use actual version of software.
Here is small instruction list on how to make things rollin’ under mighty Windows 7:
Obtain hacked [QT 6.3.1 DLLs for Windows 7]
[QT6 is not officially supported] Download [CFF Explorer]
[direct link] for basic resource hackery Obviously grab latest zipped archive [OBS Studio 29.
Without further ado, straight to the facts:
last version with sane amount of system services, which can’t be turned off absence of [neural networks API]
, which is used for telemetry, collection/profiling user data with subsequent uploading collected information to third-parties [for the first time technology was introduced in Android 8.1] full support of any modern browser [even Android 6.0 can handle this] ability to load legacy Android 2.x applications without any issues [Android 14 is already blocking such apps] I care about older stuff simply because of code quality.

No chitter here, just plain breakdown of the most important stuff.
► WINDOWS 7 FIREWALL▼
[Outpost Firewall Pro]

ddraw.ini ◄ main configuration file f2_res.ini ◄ settings for high resolution patch fallout2.cfg ◄ classic settings file from 90s [preserved for compatibility almost depricated for now] Here i’ll mention the most important setttings, which can come in handy for almost every Fallout player out there.

No bla-bla-bla here. Just a little breakdown of best computer games ever.
[X-COM: Enemy Unknown]
[Transport Tycoon Deluxe]
[Stalker: Shadow of Chernobyl]
[The Incredible Machine III]
If you would like to play these games on modern computer you are in luck, coz most of them were forked to open-source or remastered versions.
/ Extended version
[Stalker: Shadow of Chernobyl OGSR]
[Civilization II:Test of Time]
[Diablo II: Resurrected]
And yeah, no cyberpunk 2077 here.

¶ ESSENTIAL INTRODUCTION Finally I get up all one’s courage to compile and publish essential stuff regarding Windows 7 optimization. Note that full version of the guide will be released somewhere around early 2023. Check the warm place to stay on the edge. And now….Let’s dive into the tweaking process!
All console commands should be executed from command line with with administrative privileges. Most of mentioned tweaks could be done via control panel, to enter it in a fast way just type in command line or execute Start Run:

UPDATED ON: 2023-02-15 Secure Boot now supported [officially]
▒ HARDWARE Motherboard: Gigabyte X570 Aorus Ultra BIOS: F34 [F35b breaks compatibility with Windows 7]
I think that guide will be useful due to nightmarish non-ergonomic structure of Gigabyte’s BIOS menus.
▒ UEFI vs MBR Windows 7 supports UEFI only partially, there is no native handling of this modern tech. I don’t see any reason to use UEFI, only if you want to boot from drive which is larger than 2TB.
UPDATED ON: 2023-02-06 v1.0b: please [contact me]
if you find errors or inaccuracies.
In this guide i will quickly show my system configuration tweaked for privacy. I’m using essential stuff like 3G/4G/WiFi & BT. Additional pleasantries are blocked.
