Description of Spider-Man Windows
Super-hero games are always difficult: you want to include challenge to the players, but you want the hero to still feel “super” in the hands of the player. Spider-Man shows a bit of promise and comes close to being up to the task.
Spider-Man has wall-crawling, web-slinging action, super-strength, and even his spidey-senses in this arcade-style adventure beat-em-up. He even has Stan “the Man” Lee offering narration at the beginnings of each level! Unfortunately, what he doesn't have are decent camera angles or a robust quality assurance inspection.
The arcade-style play can involve having to rewatch cutscenes and narration over and over again as you try to get the level right. The clumsy camera means it's difficult to see around corners or where you're supposed to crawl or jump or what bad-guys you're supposed to not get shot by. The poor quality assurance means Spider-Man is full of game-breaking bugs that will prevent you from finishing the game, including ones that will corrupt saves or leave you stuck in a loading or cutscene loop.
There are a few ways to get around some of these issues; certain bugs are allegedly due to framerate issues [cutscene loops are supposed to occur when framerates exceed 30 FPS], which can be resolved with programs and tinkering that will manually cap the framerate at which Spider-Man will run. But is it worth it? Since there are many game-breaking bugs and the framerate issue is only one of them, it's hard to recommend the PC port of this title.

It always crashes as soon as I launch it. I read the comment that supposedly fixed it, but It didn't work

Those who are facing black screen and then the game closes. Here is the solution:
1. Right click on spideyPC.exe and click on troubleshoot compatibility
2. Save the settings and Run the Game
3. Enjoy your childhood game!!

Guys it's easy to install and play.
Follow the steps carefully.
Step1: Download the file and extract
Step2: If you have UltraIso (If you don't then install it) Open it
Step3: In Ultra iso there is an option to mount. At first open the file in ultra iso an press on the MDF file and mount it to CD drive.
Step4: The file will be mounted in the virtual drive in CD ROM. Now open it and install the game
Step 5: After game is installed, Now download a patch up file available here as a FIX file and replace it in the exe file. Now the game is ready to play

So, both with a new download and using Daemon, and when I used to have the CD and updated the operating system, after the cut scene before the first boss battle (with Scorpion) I'm just all of a sudden falling out a window. It won't let me play the battle.
Anyone know what to do about that?

lostg 2019-07-07 0 point Windows version
for those who have a mdf and mds files, use daemon tools lite or pro, whichever you want, install daemon tools and then open the mdf with daemon tools.
WAVYGRAVY 2019-06-11 3 points Mac version
I know im probably not gonna get an answer to this question, since there are already 3 other people asking it, but what do I do with the mdf and mds file?

@SPIDEY What NO-CD file??? I don't seem to have it, is that the name of the file?

Anyone else having issues with audio? I have the game downloaded and it's playable, just the audio doesn't work.

For those wondering why the Spider-Man game runs so fast on modern Windows operating systems, this is because it is running at 60 frames per second when it should run at 30. I recommend using RivaTuner Statistics Server. It can reduce the frames to 30.
Spidey 2019-02-17 4 points Windows version
Use UltraISO to open the MDF file. Daemon tools might work too. Extract the contents somewhere and run the setup file. Once it's installed, take the NO-CD file and paste it into your game directory. The file should replace the existing "SpideyPC.exe" and you should be able to run the game without the CD. If you have any problems, try changing the compatibility mode to an older Windows version by right clicking the exe and going to properties compatibility compatibility mode.

It says the binkw32.dll is missing and I can't play it. Any way of fixing this?
Blue 2018-10-06 1 point Windows version
I can't download the game, once it gets about half-way it cancels the download and says "Failed - No file"

hey peeps .. just finished downloading the game .. just one word.. fantastic..
sodaddict 2018-07-30 1 point Windows version
I wouldn't recommend the PC version, the graphics are flickery and there are many different game-breaking glitches preventing you from proceeding (i.e Venom Chase and Sewage Plant).
Tristan Lewis 2018-05-07 4 points Windows version
I have unzipped the file, now what programme do I use to open it? There are 2 files, one is 'spiderman.mdf' and the other is 'spiderman.mds'. Please help

I don't know if it's because of my Mac or not, but the game's audio glitches so much. As in, every two seconds, the audio dies and then comes back. It's really annoying.

Would be nice if you mentioned this only works on Power PC macs with the old IBM chips...
