    Default hey guys need help with 16 bit driver games on 64 bit pcs

    K its all very complacated for me and im a x member (might return for etw) of the online community.

    I dont think i knew too many here but if anyone knows me then great to see you again! everybody thanks in advanced for any help!

    I have this game Zeus: Master of Olympus

    I have tried so much to get this game to work and have done a lot of research.

    Heres what i know is wrong:

    Its an old game that used to run on 16 bit drivers. Now drivers are a bit more advanced these days and they are reaching 64 bit and from what i gather some new vista computers are also 32 bit

    If you are running a 32 bit driver it will play

    64 bit, it wont.

    Im 64 bit and used to love this game!

    Hi dreadedmob,

    You mistakenly posted your question in the Gameroom. I'll move it to the Apothecary, since it's more likely you'll get a helpful answer there.



    EDIT: On second thoughts, I'll move it to the Hard and Software forum, since your problem isn't exactly related to a TW title

    Have you tried running the game in Windows 95/98 compatibility mode?

    When you try to run the game what errror message do you see?

    I tried and when i do that it changes colour settings and then stops as if nothing happened. when its not on compatability nothing happens at all.. also i was messing around with a few of the colour options to see if that would do something but it didnt.

    Hmmm... you could try running Windows 95/98 in a virtual machine. That might do the trick.

    You're on Vista 64bit? I'm pretty sure 16-bit applications just plain don't run in 64bit Vista.

    Running a VM would probably work, but that sounds like an awful lot of work- I guess it depends how much he loves the game.
