Read Full Description


  • If the installation doesn't start, or you get an error at the end of installation - try to launch Setup.exe in compatibility mode with old version of Windows (98, 2000 or XP)
  • It is recommended to run the game in compatibility mode with old version of Windows, like Windows 95/98, 2000 or XP. Also, if you have troubles with running the game on modern systems - try to use DxWnd, check this thread for settings
  • NoCD for version 1.0 showed 2 warnings on VirusTotal, NoCD for version 1.115b showed 6 warnings. Files are safe to use, all warnings are generic, about suspicious/unsafe file, usual case with "cracked" exe-files
  • The game works on DirectX 8, so if you're using Windows 8, 8.1, 10 or 11 - you need to enable DirectPlay: Go to Control Panel, and select 'Programs'. Select 'Turn Windows features on and off', click on 'Legacy Components' and check the box 'DirectPlay'. Select OK, once the installation is done, restart your computer
  • Looks like the game doesn't have framerate limit, and when it runs on more than 60 FPS, it may cause troubles. You can set framerate limit in control panel of you video card, if it has such function, or use one of framerate limiter utilities. Or you can try to use custom NoCDs with FPS limit by ChemicalFlood, but we didn't test it, so try it at your own risk
  • You can find cheat codes for the game here
