I came here to share a link with yall that my friend used to get the game working on windows 10. IT WORKS AND I HAVE BEEN PLAYING IT NON STOP!

Got it installed on an XP VM configured with 256 colors. The application will open, but once it loads it will not get past a picture frame with a building in it. Not sure what settings I may be missing. Any help will be appreciated.

I've tried running it on plain Dosbox, Dfender, ScrummVM, and on an XP VM with no luck. Any files I need to specifically extract and put in a folder and upload onto a VM? Or do I need to convert something? Any suggestions are most welcome!! :(

Been looking for this game everyone and almost died from excitement when I found it here.

Can someone please tell me how to get it to run on windows 10?!

I'm currently trying to install a Virtual Machine with Windows XP to see if I can run it there. If anyone else has suggestions let me know please!

Loved the game as a child, used to have the CD somewhere. Can't seem to get this to work no matter what I try.
