Game flickers wildly, does not run

Post by keoman »

Hi. Having trouble running this game. It flickers wildly and is unresponsive. I have problems several years ago, but solved them by setting the FPS very low, to 9. But now it will not run. I tried shutting down all other programs. Could it be a problem with Direct X?

reinstalled on windows 11, and while yes it stops that issue, you still can't alt tab out the game and play, or alter the screen size that much, so works now, but some will still have issues with the game on some hardware in windows 10 and 11 i'm sorry to say, but yes now at least the game runs, but can't see if getting put back on the compatability list and fully supported im sorry to say
