Still no sound, after changing the compatibility, on windows XP
How do I do what the readfirst file says?
There are a few command line switches that you can try if you have problems
getting the game to work.
To make sound adjustments:
-si pc speaker
-sb Sound Blaster
-sm Microsoft Sound System
-sn sound off
For example, to run with Sound Blaster settings you'd type
ssg -sb (enter)
to start the game.

solved it u.u
DOSbox is the answer.

G&G wont run on 64-bit W8
Knowbody added this comment on 2013-09-27 :
Since this is a 16-bit game, it won't run in a 64-bit OS unless you use DOSbox or something.
It might run in Windows XP, but I haven't tried.

I'm running this through D-Fend Reloaded, and I can hear the sounds but I can't see any picture? I'm running 64-bit Windows 7.

#4483 I'm not sure which game you are thinking of, but this game is part of the Super Solver's franchise, all of which I believe use the same character.
Bigthan added this comment on 2012-11-13 :
I got it working great using a DOS emulator, DOSBOX. It's free and if you look up the "Setup and Installation of DOSBox" instructions it's pretty simple to setup and use.
bon17 added this comment on 2012-10-13 :
sound doesn't work on xp. tried all options.
Computerfail added this comment on 2012-09-18 :
When I try to install, an error message reads that my computer settings are incompatible... what to do? And yeah I did take the files out of the zip folder but ugh I don't understand computers. Thanks in advance if anyone ever reads this.

The game in the tombs is ancient empires
hmm added this comment on 2012-09-01 :
does anybody remember the game before this one with the same character? In that one you went around to ancient tombs.

Hiro added this comment on 2011-10-21 :
Tried right clicking the setup.exe and running it under windows xp and even windows 95 compatibility. Nothing.
Nadia added this comment on 2011-08-07 :
When I opened the downloaded file and extracted it with WinRar, it gave me a lot of different things. What do I click on to make it run?
admin added this comment on 2011-07-04 :
This is a windows application, you need to run the setup from windows. Works very well of Windows XP !
Reba added this comment on 2011-07-02 :
I keep getting the "Given folder does not have an executable file" message when I try to load the unzipped folder into my D-Fend reloaded. Is there something I'm missing, here? This is the only game I've had trouble with so far.
Rianna added this comment on 2011-05-07 :
Ah, I was trying to get it to run on windows 7 64 bit, but I have an old xp box and it works fine on that. Thanks for the help!
admin added this comment on 2011-05-03 :
Just ran this on a windows XP computer, installation went fine.
What you should do though is :
Right click on the program (or shortcut, or setup if it doesn't work) and set compatibility mode to windows 95, or the oldest you can get.
Rianna added this comment on 2011-04-29 :
I've just downloaded the files, and although there is a setup file, there doesn't appear to be a program file. When I extracted the files, it gave a message about there being an encryption problem. I haven't had this problem with any other games. Anyone know what the problem could be? Thanks!
Debbie added this comment on 2011-03-15 :
Will this be able to run with DOSBox *with* sound? I already have a program but I'm unable to get any audio with the game :(
admin added this comment on 2011-03-14 :
Hi Dela, this is a windows application and you won't be able to play it on a mac without an additionnal software.
You will have to install it on a windows machine or install on your mac a software like CrossOver.
Dela added this comment on 2011-03-14 :
Has this worked for anyone on a mac?
