Cannont Install Op1
« on: January 07, 2009, 01:52:10 AM »
Hi, i just found this game in my basement and had to play it, so i tried from this disk and ur downloadable ISO file and mounted it on Deamon tools. both asked me if i wanted to install and when i did it opened up the setup but it was minimized. I've tried changing screen resolution and forcing it to run at 256 colors. nothing works

then it gets weirder , after a few tries it gives me this error:

File Error, Cannot Find GDI.DLL

followed by:

Can't run 16-bit Windows Program
    Cannot Find file E:\setup.exe ... bla bla bla check path ...bla ... libraries...

sry for the paragraph i just cant figgure it out.


UPDATE:

--- Just as random as it happend it installed ... AND it seem's to work properly but i got an error when quiting and changed my them to all green and black lol somthing that happened back on the day wen i used to play this... well im tired ill report back tomaro if the game still holds ... thnkx if any one read my post.
