Hi guys.

this is my first time in this forum so i'll say a quick hello.

Im stuck on a coule of things that i am desperate to get some help for.

I recently bought a pc game which was created in the 90's. i tried to install the game by the usual methods but it won't start.

After tryng some many possible ways of getting the game to load i contacted the seller to see how he got the game to start.

As you can imagine this guy was no help at all. all he said was i had to change my settings to be able to play the game but i aint no professor so i am absolutly stuck.

I would very much appreciate some good advice and help from someone who knows what they are doing.

Thank you for all that reply. your co-operation is appreciated.
