Hello everyone! I've been looking for this game for a long time and I'm glad I was finally able to find it in the ISO cellar.

Anyways, my problem is when I go to save the game I get a message that says "The disk is full. The temporary game file cannot be updated." Then it quits to the main menu without saving the game. The harddrive the game is installed to has 20 gigs of free space. I'm running the game in Windows 95 compatibility mode in Vista, and I'm running it off of a CD I burned with the disc image (burned with Daemon tools lite, and Astroburn lite).

Other than the "disk is full" error, the game runs fine, and I get all audio. I can play the game, but it's a bit hard to get through the game without the ability to save or die, haha! Does anyone know of something I can try to fix it?

I don't have a copy of windows 3.1/95/98, so running a virtual machine isn't the best option for me because I would have to steal a copy from somewhere :omg:

Not really a Vista problem.
The harddrive the game is installed to has 20 gigs of free space. This. It's a common issue with early 90's games - if you provide them with too much free HDD space, when the game attempts to check the amount of available space the value won't fit into the type the game executable was programmed to use.
Put the game on a smaller partition, with significantly less space - 1-2 GB would be about right. Should work perfectly fine then.
