Turns out they mean "you actually have to have bought a game", not necessarily "your account has to have a game on it". I'm saying this because I thought the warning was just there to prevent people from registering solely for the game.

From the Midnight Club 2 Steam page: "Notice: This game does not support Windows 7 or Windows Vista."

That's Reeeeeeaaaaaaal nice of you RockStar. Give everyone a free game that 99% of people can't even run. I'm sure there must be a way to hack it into running on Vista or 7, but no one is going to bother doing that for a mediocre 10 year old racing game.

Yeah. I saw that and just updated my post. There's some discussion in the steam forum about getting it working, but do so at your own risk.

I already have Midnight Club 2 on Steam from a Rockstar complete pack or something. I don't recall ever playing it.

Yeah, as I said, there are sure to be hacks that will get it running. But I can't imagine many people will want to go to that effort just to play Midnight Club 2. I might do it, just because I like messing with PC games and tweaking/hacking them into optimal performance, but the majority of people aren't going to bother.

Just saw this on another site. Last time i saw this game in motion was a video review when it was new. But i'm gonna give it a shot now.

Not worth trying to run an old game for widows 7 so I'll pass.

Thanks for the heads up.

Anyone who joined the Rockstar group for this offer should now see the game in their Steam library. It seems to work fine for me on Windows 7 without messing with anything.
