This is probably because your CPU is too fast (you heard me) for the game and it makes your computer freeze.

Try using DOSBox.

Just drag&drop game executabel over dosbox and it should work fine.

try pressing ctrl+F12 or ctrl+F8 to get the game running faster. BTW it does slow all the things, and that's exactly what we want!

i pressed both combinations to the end :whistle: Yes I know his function - to slow down it's great fo win XP but it's kinda booooooooooooring to wait 2 times longer to do the same thing LOL

DOSBox is mainly for XP, and XP users mainly have big machine. If you don't have at least 1.5 gigahertz of power in your machine then don't use DOSBox.

If you have Win98 Se then you should be able to run 90% of the old games easily anyways.
