Can this be played over hamachi or something like it? This would be interesting to get people to play this with

If anyone wants to run this in multiplayer over the internet as I recently did for a game night, the ports you need to forward are 2322 and 2323. It may only be one, I'm not sure, but forwarding both did allow a surprisingly stable and effective internet multiplayer game!

If you want to run it on a windows 10 machine, do not bother installing it. Just mount it using a virtual drive. Open the "Life" folder and just open the "life" application. It will jump right into the game

It opened with Virtual Clone Drive mentioned in these comments, but I got an error saying it isn't compatible with 64-bit windows. Any tips?

I installed this on a vm box windows xp vm and when i run the game, it is a solid black screen. Any thoughts? I can hear the sound, i just don't get any of the video.

I was able to download the Virtual Clone Drive that DisneyGirl spoke about but how do you use it to make this download to work? No archives found is all I get when I try to extract files.

I got it to work. The link for the Virtual Clone drive no longer works. I found the Virtual Clone Drive here: https://download.cnet.com/Virtual-CloneDrive/3000-20432_4-173879.html.

I tried to run this, but I can't get the .iso file to open. I downloaded one of the files they said I needed to read .iso files, but it still won't open. What do I need to do? Do I need to burn it to a disc for it to work?

Thank you so much for making this available, being able to play this game after so many years brings me a little joy during this pandemic situation

@Razor, i think you would go to options and wherever it says English, you would adjust to your language. That's if they have the option to change it to french.
Je pense que vous iriez aux options et partout où il est dit anglais, vous vous adapteriez à votre langue. C'est s'ils ont la possibilité de le changer en français.

Best version of life. I run it in windows xp pack 2 for the best performance. It has a bit of lag for certain things, but the gameplay is identical to back when this was new.
