It'd be helpful for people willing to help if you posted what version of Windows are you running, probably as well your video card.

For some reason Torrented old games work better for me than my cd's. *shrugs*

Perhaps the autoexec.nt file is not set up properly, or it's corrupted. What are you running to install the game?

NRN_Sumo1: From what I've read about your computer not being particularly happy with most programs that don't give other people trouble, your system is probably just the exception to the rule. ;) Pity even supposedly identical computers are as identical with each other as chalk is with cheese. But I guess that's part of the hazard of trying to use PCs.

Do not use those two microsoft files -- config.nt and autoexec.nt -- they just do not work like the old files - config.sys and autoexec.bat files and that is that. First you need ms-dos drivers and secondly since the Extended Dos manager from Rational systems is used for the game -- it just does not jive with what microsoft considers proper ms-dos programs. The game is - but then microsoft does not include the real drivers back then that were used -- it is all set up in the Registry and the files microsoft supplies nowadays just do not work like the old files did from microsoft. Just use Dos-box or some program for ms-dos games that will work and includes the better files for ms-dos programs.

It sounds like you are using a windows 95 version of the game and trying to play it in dos. You need to get a copy of the dos version of the game. Besides dosbox, your other option is to run vmware server which is free( http://vmware.com) install does and run it in pure dos or windows 95 in a simulated environment.
