Issues fixed[edit]

Game installer won't run under 64 bit Windows[edit]

Since the installer is a 16-bit program, they won't work in 64-bit operating systems. To remedy this use the appropriate fixed installer found here: [1] to create an updated install disk with which you can install and run the game. There are three files to download depending on which installation media you have.

Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/361690/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (361690) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
