Some/most of them need a few tweaks, custom wrapper or unofficial fixes. But I'm certain they're all playable in Windows 7.
Oh, and only Starship Creator Warp II is not playable in Windows 10.

Hexen95

Crashy options menu (which starts crashing from Win98 onward)

Setting to Windows 95 compatibility allows me to play without crash.

Their original releases might have problems with forced anti aliasing on some cards+drivers combinations and garbled colours on menus under Win7, which is easily fixed by using DirectDraw Compatibility Tool.

I can add HotRod American Street Drag to the list. It installed and ran perfectly on my windows 7 Ultimate system. Didn't have to use compatibility mode or anything it just worked.

I completely forgot about the colour problem. I personally would kill explorer.exe in the Task Manager as I didn't know about the existence of the app, will be adding this in the list though. I didn't try the anti aliasing in the driver, I have a GF 7 series card which doesn't have problem too. Perhaps I probably have to add a system requirements for my fixes to work.

I remember Fallout having palette issues. Are you judging from late rereleases?

Shadows of the Empire also had fog issues with a large range of 200x hardware.

Fallout and Fallout 2 gave me colour palette issues in Windows 7 but not in any later OS. Since I don't use Windows 7 much, I don't test or play the games there too much and I don't clearly remember which games had palette issue; as for every old game on Windows 7, I closed explorer.exe to get proper palette. For this purpose, I have mentioned to use DirectDraw Compatibility Tool for games having palette issues.

SOTE didn't give me any problems on my GF7 and GF10 hardware with the latest driver. Also dgVoodoo worked fine, so I mentioned it to be used for any graphical glitches, at the beginning of the post 😉. Don't know how dgVoodoo works out on 200x hardware and I need some feedbacks, since I don't have my HD 5450 anymore. Drivers are getting better so things are getting easier. I remember around 2013, I could not play SOTE at all. But now it runs just fine without any tweaks.
