Amber on Win2000 OS issues - 08/26/03 06:48 PM

I'm trying to play Amber on Windows 2000 when it was written for Win95. I've got it installed and when I try to play it here is what happens:
-I get to view the nice autumn leaf video opening
-next, I get a message "script error: handler not defined #movutils" with the option to continue or quit
-when I press continue in the step above, I get another message "script error: handler not defined #newgame" with the option to continue or quit
-when I press continue, all I get is a black blank screen with my cursor on it. All I can do at this point is ctl+alt+del out and end the task of running the game.

When I opened up the directory, I can play all of the audio QuickTime files and listen to them. I also noticed a file called "movutils.dll". This is the .dll file for the movies I'm sure. I see no file that has anything to do with the "#newgame" message.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Bruce,

I will transfer this thread to our glitches. The experts there might get you going!

Amber cannot be played on Win 2000 or Win XP or even Win NT.

Period.

Sorry. frown

Inferno, I think you'll find a way of using a DOS emulator to run Master Lu before anyone ever comes up with a XP patch for Amber. lol
