Fixes for Game Not Starting/Working

[Post New]by Jerrod777 on Dec 23, 17 2:27 PM
Problem: After installing the game, it wouldn't work in Windows XP, Windows 7, and Windows 10. I found a fix to allow this game to work.

Solution: After installing, navigate to the folder where the game is installed.
By default it is located at... C:\Program Files (x86)\Return to Mysterious Island, or C:\Program Files\Return to Mysterious Island

Open up the config.ini file by right-clicking and select "Edit".
Change the following line
bFullScreen=1so that it reads ... bFullscreen=0 (changing the 1 to a 0)
(this will tell the program to open in "Windowed" mode instead of fullscreen)

For Windows 10
Right-click "RTMI.exe" file in the folder and select 'Properties'
Click 'Compatibility' Tab
Check "Run this program in compatibility mode for: Windows XP (Service Pack 3)
Check "Run this program as an administrator"

Do the same for the file "zfgncmf.exe" Right-click and select 'Properties'
Click 'Compatibility' Tab
Check "Run this program in compatibility mode for: Windows XP (Service Pack 3)
Check "Run this program as an administrator"

This did not work for Return to Mysterious Island 2. I end up at a screen that plays music but only shows V1.05 in the lower left of the screen. Other than that the screen is blank.
I tried a few different compatibility options but all behave the same.
ARGH!
