After having withdrawal symptoms after finishing the Black Mirror trilogy (loved the whole thing by the way). I decided to try and install Overseer although I knew the DVD probably wouldn't work in Win 7. Anyway, put in the first CD and it worked O.K. even if graphics weren't perfect and as usual after a very short time the message of insert CD2 came up, put that one in and the thing wouldn't work at all! First time I've had that happen but then I haven't replayed the game since I first bought it years ago. Just wondering if anyone had any brilliant suggestions as how to fix the thing. smile

I guess you could try the how-to at the web archive ***here***.

The link for the 1.04 patch seems to work, though I don't know if the rest of it does. There seem to be some illustrations missing too.

And if you continue to have trouble getting the game working, you can buy it from GOG here. It's the DVD version and works just fine on my Windows 7 computer.
