Issues fixed[edit]

Game not starting on Windows 10[edit]

Enable the following compatibility settings for the Game.exe file: Compatibility mode (Windows XP (Service Pack 3)), Reduced color mode (8-bit (256) color), Run in 640x480 screen resolution, and Run this program as an administrator[3]
Since the screen is now set at 640x480, playing the game Windowed can be difficult because of the window border and taskbar.
