Issues fixed[edit]

Installing and running on 64-Bit Systems[edit]

This is for those that have the original physical CD.
Install using workarounds for 64-Bit Systems[citation needed]
  1. Insert the CD.
  2. Copy all the game's files to a folder.
  3. Inside the folder with the game's files, make note of the executable's name.
  4. After noting the name, delete the original 16-bit executable.
  5. Find the file with the same name as the executable, but with the extension .W32.
  6. Rename this file. Delete the .W32 extension and put a .EXE extension in place of it.
  7. If any error boxes come up, say OK.
  8. Run the Game.

Notes

The game's resolution will still be its original resolution with a black border. You can go into the game settings with ESC and change to Windowed mode if you prefer.
