Issues fixed[edit]

Game installer won't run under 64 bit Windows[edit]

Since the installer is a 16-bit program, they won't work in 64-bit operating systems. To remedy this use the appropriate fixed installer found here: [1] to create an updated install disk with which you can install and run the game. There are three files to download depending on which installation media you have.
