Hey tigala -

It sounds like it's an old, DOS version of the game.

I'm wondering if you can run that game in one of the "compatibility modes" in Vista, maybe Win 98?

A "full screen" back in the DOS days may be much less than even the VGA 640x480 mode.

You may have to download and install Microsoft's Virtual PC (or similar) program and run your game(s) in a "virtual" environment.

Hopefully, someone here may have experience with DOS running in Vista.


I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!
