If you are having problems getting the game to work correctly, we highly recommend going to our Help pages. Using our Help pages is always the quickest way to get technical problems resolved. Here are a few suggested articles that have helped many people correct these types of problems in the past:

Game Crashing, Freezing, or Blank Screen

Game Compatibility

While we can offer a known solution for technical issues in the forums, or other tech savvy pond residents can swim by with good tips and suggestions, we cannot provide the same excellent level of support provided by our Customer Support team.

The forums are not very well suited for the kinds of information gathering and troubleshooting that get these types of issues corrected quickly.

If there is a problem with the game, our Support Team can also gather necessary information on what types of computers are being affected by the problem and deliver this information to the developer for a fix.

If you are not able to get a game working properly using our Help pages, please get in touch with our Customer Support team, you can find a link to contact our Support team on the front page of our Help pages.

*Please reserve this thread for tech issues only. If you are seeking game play assistance (i.e. hints and tips), the best thing to do is to start a new thread in the game's Forum by clicking on 'Create New Discussion.'

I'm having trouble when the game comes on, the screen is tall and skinny. I have changed the resolution and reinstalled the game...any other idea. PS...I was playing this game and when I went back to play it, it started acting up.

I know this is an old game but I know it's also still for sale and says it's compatible with newer systems running Win 7 and 8.
I bought it years ago and it's a favorite but now having to move forward on a newer system (so long XP) the game isn't running very nicely.
I just put it on my Win 7 computer and while it will run, it's jumpy and flashy, especially when you link actions for the speed bonus or when you try to move things around. It certainly isn't the joy it used to be. As I said, it's a favorite and I can't bear the thought that this wonderful game will fall by the wayside as technology plows ahead.
My computer system is in good working order and as up to date as I know to make it but as it's an old game, so is there anything I can do to make it run more smoothly?
And any advice for running it on Win 8? The devs say it won't work but it's listed as compatible on the game page here.
