After downloading this game, including "Download 3", I get the following when I try to play---

"Windows system 32/d3dx9_43.dll is either not designed to run on windows (I have 8.1) or it contains an error. Try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact your system administrator or the software vendor for support. Error status 0xc000012f.

Any ideas about this? I downloaded from "GOG"

Thanks

Try installing DirectX 9 from Microsoft.
The game apparently needs DirectX 9.

The support article at
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/179113
mentions games that need DirectX 9 under the
"Install DirectX End-User Runtime if your application or game requires an earlier version of DirectX"
heading and links to the download ***here***

Download versions of games don't always include all the DirectX files the game needs.

Hi Gordon,

what on earth, some finnish language!? I appreciate your nice gesture! smile

Have a nice day you too! In Finland we tend to wish "Hauskaa päivän jatkoa!".

I hope you have already been successful in solving the dll problem and enjoyed your new game.
I liked it a lot, could have been a bit longer though.

Timo
