Fantastic game, pure nostalgia. However, will not work on Win 10 even with the Frontschweine fix (Win 10), at least on current Win10 builds. I tried downloading different ddraw files from github, but none of them fix the missing textures (you can see the water through the floor).

It's a shame that while the game is being sold, the sold version only works on Windows 7 and presumably XP. Not sure about Linux. Windows 8 won't work and neither will Windows 10. I was going to just play it on Windows 98 (you can either virtualize or emulate older versions of Windows) however they don't provide you with an installer or files of the original game version, and consequently it won't run on the original OS it was made for. This game is just unplayable for anyone without Windows 7/XP and that's silly.
There were community fixes for Windows 10 a while ago but those don't work anymore either.
