Hello, Does anyone know of patches for these games? I have never got them to play, even on Win'98.

For Mystery of the Nautilus, no. I don't know about Time Machine.

Big Fish has a "casualized" version of Mystery of the Nautilus they call Secrets of the Nautilus. I'm playing it right now. It's been changed quite a bit, the the original screens, music and general plot are still there.

I think you had to have Windows Media Player 7 or 8 and DirectX 8 for the 2002 version of Nautilus to work in Win98 or XP. Of course later versions of Windows Media Player are probably not compatible.

Inferno had a setup walkthrough for Time Machine on XP, with a link to the patch at FileFront

Draclvr, I,too, am playing that game now and enjoying it very much. That is what started me thinking about the old Nautilus game.
