Default Second-hand Cd-Rom of Lords of the Realm 2

It refuses to work because it cannot detect an obsolete type of video card on my XP Volkswagen Bus HALP!

It would be nice to review it. Otherwise I'll just dig up a cracked version or some such.

Being a 1996 game it wasn't supposed to run on Windows XP was it? Did you try the usual solutions? Compatibility mode set to Win95, colours set to 256, or such. You could try setting up a Virtual Machine with Win95 installed.

Does the detection fail while installing the game, or when running it after it's been installed?
If it's the former, the issue could be avoided by manually copying the relevant files to a folder where he game should be located.
