Postby Karza222 » Sat May 19, 2018 5:48 pm

I downloaded the game and installed it but nothing happens when i run it, the mouse cursos just loads a bit and stops. Is there a way to make it work on Windows8?

try the direct x emulator?
D3D8to9 v1.8
d3d8to9 is a pseudo-driver module that aims to improve the compatibility and stability in games using Direct3D 8 rendering by converting all API calls and low-level Direct3D shaders equivalent elements 9. It also allows games concerned get new opportunities from proven and written wrappers tools Direct3D 9.

You say you installed it, but you don't mention applying the crack. Did you copy the crack file to the game install folder ?

Running the game in compatibility mode for Windows XP some times fixes the issue. But ZX is right, running the game in a virtual machine may be the only way to get it to run properly.
