Hi.

Im trying to run an old game (11th Hour) on a specially bought pc (as it had a lower spec).

I have to run the program from the dos prompt which up to a point is ok.

when i have made the correct sound settings, the program says to click any key to get started. I then get kicked back to windows and get the following error:


Error: System does not have a linear frame buffer and the player cannot
Error: set a virtual frame buffer from s WINDOWS(tm) shell
Error: please exit windows and run the player from there

I have tried several things but all to no good.

can anyone help?

many thanks

Kev.

Have you tried running the game in DOS? I believe that game is DOS based.

yeah i have used the msdos prompt in 98 which just kicks me back to windows and then shows the error typed above.

I have shut down the system and restarted in dos.. but it then doesnt recognise the cdrom drive???
