I have just tried to load Myst again on the 98 SE machine......both with and without changing the display .,..changed to 256 colours and 640 X 480....The game loaded or
at least told me that the installation was successful....
I then tried to run the game with and with out the 256 colour and the 640 X 480 and I got the same result....ie.
First a message came up and said that an Error had occured and I clicked Ignore but had to close the error message....then the screen turned to some wonderful mixed up colours and the mesage " That this program had performed an illegal operation and would close down "
And, the Darn CD Drive would not open and the only left to do was a Warm Boot.
Machine specs.....Win 98 SE...300Mhz Clock.....48 speed Atapi CD-R/ RW Drive.( This has now for some unknown reason decided to rename itself Drive "E" instead of "D"....Display card is
S3 ViRGE PCI (325) (Display adapter)..SiS6326 (display adapter)...Plug and Play Monitor....
Multimedia OPTi Plug-N-Play sound system...Wave device for Voice Modem....Ethernet Card for the Broadband Box.
Dont know if any of the above is to blame.
