Ah, what delicious memories! And I know just what you mean by jumping or being startled and I can remember 2 places in Shivers 1 -
Click to reveal..
crossing the lake in the beginning and in a dark hallway (between the walls) inside the mansion,
a sight which made me almost jump out of my chair! Loved this game. Must pull it out and try it on my XP. Thanks for the 'memories'.
Love, Betty Lou

Thanks for the help Dear Boomer friends but,due to a personal emergency I will have to be away from home with my computers and Shivers left behind. I did bring Barrow Hill, Darkfall, and SyberiaII with me. I am using a laptop for the first time in my life.(Strange). The typing is hard. I will retry Shivers when I get home. I kept my 98 because, when I got XP 98 was so old it wasn't worth anything.

Carrie The lowest setting my computer can set the size to is 600 x 800, the color has a choice of only 16 or 32 bit. I haven't tried it on this one yet anyway, it was a different XP computer with a different monitor. I may just go and install on that one instead.

Haven't tried it yet, either, but I stuck a note on the game box with Marian's suggestion (256 color; 640x480?), for when I finally get around to playing Shivers again.

So does anyone know whether Shivers will play on XP???
Looks like a good game that I've been wanting to play but haven't heard anyone saying it ran on XP?? Can someone let me know. Thx

Yes it will play on XP, but may be easier to install on some computers than others. I know it installed easily on my computer that was very basic, but had XP Pro. But, when we formatted the hard drive, we did it in Fat32, not NTFS. That computer I recently reformatted again, this time in NTFS. Anyway, tonight I installed Shivers on my computer with all the higher end stuff and it wasn't that easy. I have two DVD drives, no Cd and it did not like one of them at all. It finally installed in the other, just remember do not click the test part, cause unless you have an old computer, it will fail. Shivers/Sierra does not like new. I set my resolution to the lowest setting I have, screen was a decent size on my 19" monitor and set the color to black. I started the game and it played fine, though I didn't continue it.

Ellimay,
I mentioned a page or two ago that I've installed Shivers on XP, no problem. Others have also, but make sure, like "Hawk" mentioned, NOT to say "okay" to let the game check your machine for specs. My machine is about 4 years old, with XP Home Edition. Only problem is that it plays in a "box", rather than full screen.

If you scroll to the bottom of this page, it will explain how to run Shivers in a fullscreen mode:

thanks for the link Marian! I put it into my Favorites folder so I'll have Inferno's help handy.

Can someone tell me where to find the Gameboomers walkthrough for Shivers? I hunted Search and so far am not finding it. I did find Rae's set up, which I did not know I would need, so I will be using that. I recieved my game today and look forward to playing it.

McG-

The game is on my computer, thanks to a wonderful Boomer.

Thanks

Maggie help wave
