Looking at my current install which runs fine on Win7 64bit, I have the settings:
Refresh Rate: Default
Display game in a window - OFF
Use Direct3D - ON
Stretch to full-screen - OFF
Compatability mode - OFF
and on the game .exe itself (Discipl.exe) under the 'Compatability' tab I seem to have "Disable visual themes" ticked. No idea why but I assume past me had good reasons.
Hope something there helps.

AH - but this time I took my eyes over to Reddit, where some bright spark noticed that CVG have, in some cases, 'mangled' email addresses - changing lowercase letters to uppercase or even adding random subdomains (neither of which would affect delivery)
Sure enough, my address over there was mangled (email@example.com was XxX@.yyy.com) and so I tested something.
First I changed my GMG email to something entirely different - attempting to redeem then told me "I had no voted" (which is fair enough)
Then I changed it back - now we're "in the matrix" again
Then I changing it to match the CVG one and BOOM - free game.
So here's some sage advice for everyone
1 - check your emails match EXACTLY
2 - when doing things like this, sites MUST come-up with ways of avoiding them turning into 'exploiter spigots'
3 - find the person who put in the 'error in the matrix' code and pension them off - they'll be ready for retirement surely!

I have a stupid doubt that's being in the back of my mind for a while. The page GMG has set up says "thanks for voting / use your GMG/Playfire account to login if you have one".
What would happen if I simply login and pick a game, having not done anything else? nothing, right?
edit: don't think this one has been posted - Sleeping Dogs for less than 5 eurobucks on Nuuvem.

Heads up, new Space Rangers re-release is discounted on Steam with a 20% discount (so 20 USD). Signs point to it being safe to buy, but I am still a bit wary and am waiting for more coverage

For english-speaking usersPlease use an English discussion board, located here. Do not post in russian forum, we don't need a language mess.
We don't want a language mess, either.

Yeah. That is one of MANY reasons that I am wary of this. Plus, I vaguely recall them mentioning they had to start from scratch as they lose a lot of the source and licenses, and SR2 had bugs that continued even after the first expansion.
That being said, they MAY be justified in that as apparently this series is much more popular in Eastern Europe. But that is mostly because the devs and publisher didn't bother to translate it and due to MANY distribution issues. But, whatever.

I guess it's their own hamfisted way to focus on their core audience, but it's unwelcoming to say the least. It bothers me that it affects my outlook (the game might be fantastic for all I know about it) and at the same time I can't help it. Well, I'm sure it'll wear off sooner or later.

GMG has some kind of horror sale. For some reason, Dear Esther is included in there. If there's someone who has been even slightly interested to see what all the fuss was about but hasn't bitten yet, it's €1.48 at the moment at my area.

It's very pretty. And it's quite a lovely bit of world building. It's a shame your only interaction with it is "Blimely that's gorgeous" and "PEW PEW PEW," but it's definitely worth ten bucks. Think of it like a bad action movie done by a really, really good director. It gets stuck up it's own nose in places, and it's really kinda dumb , but it's got a lot of craft and a lot of heart and it manages to distinguish itself from the rest of it's crowd without ever rising enough above being "just" a shooter to be dubbed a masterpiece. It's slick, smart, and at times frustrating.
Personally I like spectacle and shooting, so I don't need a masterpiece. Historical significance aside, I'd take Bioshock: Infinite over Half Life 2 any day. They are of a similar class, and I think Bioshock: Infinite does the job better. Except the ending. Half Life 2 knew how to do an ending. Balance be damned. Bioshock Infinite does the ending ending well, but while conceptually strong I found it weak in terms of presentation and the "boss" fight (a wave, here, rather than a big bad) was an awful slog. A shame, because like I said I enjoyed what the ending was trying to do they just failed in some basic elements of execution that were impeccable even in the worst moments of the rest of the game which left me confused and disappointed despite still, overall, enjoying the non-mechanical bits of the ending. Fuck that boss wave thing though.
