    Robot City is an old '95 game. Nevermind why I'm wasting my time with it..

    I can load the game just fine and everything works except for a small glitch in the display. When I move the mouse it leaves a large square trail behind it and distorts the screen turning it black.

    The help file mentions this and I am running the game in 640x480 and 256 color just as it says I should.

    Any ideas?

    Here is the section of the help file that mentions it:

    ****************************************************************
    7. Video Display Problems
    ****************************************************************
    Robot City requires 256-color mode
    Robot City is an 8-bit, 256-color application. In order to view
    Robot City, you need a video card which supports at least 256
    colors in 640x480 resolution. Robot City requires you run in 256
    color mode. Other modes will cause colors to appear incorrectly
    and may cause streaking or trails on the screen. If you are not
    in 256-color mode, a warning dialog will appear when you launch
    Robot City telling you to correct the problem, exit and restart
    Windows.
