Starship Titanic - 07/10/03 02:50 PM

I just received Starship Titanic and installed it with no problems (full install) on Windows ME. However, when the first playable screen comes up, all I see is this room with a big black space underneath it; apparently this is where some interface bar is supposed to be. I also get a hand to get the CDS but I can't pick them up. I have to Control Escape to exit because I don't have a menu. I have turned my color to 16-bit and even tried turning my hardware accelerator all the way down. This doesn't seem to work. Can someone help me with this problem? Thanks in advance,

How far into the game have you played. I don't think you get an actual save screen until you're on the ship. I played the game so long ago that I can't remember for sure, but I don't think you're really able to do anything like collect inventory or save until you're on the ship. Are you able to click on things at all? I think you have to keep clicking around until you trigger the cut scene.

I am at the very beginning. I can turn on the computer and eject the CD drive on the computer. However, I can't pick up the CDS next to the computer even though I get a hand icon on it.

Unfortunately I can't remember exactly what I did at the beginning. I do remember I eventually had to put the CD in the CD drive (the one in the game) but I don't remember if I had to do anything else first. It's been over 3 years since I played the game.

Has anyone else reading this played it more recently?

There's a patch, though as far as I can tell it's for a crash to desktop at the start of the game, which is not your problem.

I just looked in the manual and it says to go to the computer & click on the CD drawer & it will open.

Then drag the Starship Titanic CD which is on the desk into the computer. The CD drawer closes.

The game starts.

Thanks, I just figured that drag the CD. I was trying to pick it up and it was getting so frustrating! Yet again, I bothered you guys with something so stupid. I'm sorry. You guys are the greatest!
