Cool! Yeah I posted that in the thread like 20 minutes after I got all of the achievements so it was all still fresh in my memory as to what I did to make it work lol. Just make sure you get a brand new copy of the GOTY edition on Amazon, because there will be a 20 digit code you have to use to link it to GFWL that will be inside the case for the game. If it's a used copy, that code might already be used, so then you would have wasted your money. But yeah, have fun with it! When you go to use/play it, just let me know if you have any more questions. I'm always happy to help!
Yeah, I did it on my laptop and it runs Windows 8. I played it about a month and a half ago, and it worked fine. Here is a link to a thread where I posted what I did to make it work. You have to do a little bit of work to make the game compatible to play, but it can be done. And it's not too hard at all. Are you looking to play it? If so, if I can be of any help, let me know and I'll definitely try to help you get it running!
I have a stupid question, but is there any way you are working on a G/RM for Risk? I remember you did them for Monopoly, so I thought I'd take a chance and ask lol. I want to play it, but barely remember how to play the board game, so I'd definitely need a little guidance to refresh my memory. Hence, I'll probably wait to get it until a G/RM is put out lol.
