Default WingNuts: Temporal Navigator

Hi! I recently got a PC and there's an old game I want to play, WingNuts: Temporal Navigator. It's an old game (2001) and while the Mac version is easy to find and was released as freeware (it's non-Universal, but a system update at some point broke the music changing between levels, and with Rosetta, even running it is a little iffy), there was a PC version too (98/Me/2000/XP). I checked the "Is it abandonware" checklist, it's not being supported anymore and even Freeverse doesn't exist anymore (it was bought up by a series of companies, and the current holder, DeNA, holds no trace to Freeverse's original products). In fact, I remember that when Freeverse was still extant, I wrote their support a letter about the problems, but it was already officially discontinued at that point.

The PC version I've tried to find on other sources, even a demo (sadly the PC version's demo was hosted on Freeverse's now-defunct FTP). And no, if your suggestion was "get an emulator and play it", it uses OpenGL, which SheepShaver does not support.

Thanks and I appreciate any feedback!

Neither Chrome nor Firefox seem to like FilePlanet, probably because of all sorts of dubious mods hanging out there. The demo's fine, right?

Well, I didn't install it. But I downloaded it, if it matters. And just started - it seems legitimate (I didn't install game though, I am at work).

Good news is it does work, better news is that it is the full version locked behind a shareware prompt, so if I find the code then good times, bad news is there's only so many launches I can do before it presumably stops working, worse news is I have yet to come up with a solution to make it work. Windowed, compatibility modes...they all crash on the loading screen in 7. Crap!
