Well, a few weeks ago I was feeling a bit nostalgic. So, I went to amazon and bought a game that I loved as a child. It's called the lost mind of doctor brain. Well anyway, I tried to install this on windows vista (I know, but I was hopeful ) and that didn't work, then I tried on xp and it installed w/o crashing at least. But then I try to run it and can't cuz it needs 256 colors. So, I right click the exe and set compatibility to 256 colors. I run it and it actually loads, but when I start playing it gets really screwy and then crashes. Then I tried installing windows 3.1 on vmware (the os i played it on as a child) but I can only get 16 colors cuz i can't find any vmware drivers for that OS. I'm starting to get fed up.
Does anyone have a solution (however patchwork it may be)?
I was thinking about installing windows 2000 on vmware which i think has a native 256 color setting. What do you think?
