Able to install from original cryo cds on windows 10 in XP compatibility mode, but game goes blank near end of introduction.

Would like to play this game again. Any suggestions?

Well, it was made for Windows 95/98, not made for XP.
Maybe one of the other compatibility settings would be better, if they're available in Windows 10.

I see GOG only sells it for Windows XP, Vista, 7, and 8 -- not for 10

So it may not be possible to get it working on Windows 10 outside of emulation -- or it may work on some Windows 10 computers but not dependably, so GOG won't support it on 10.

I don't use 10 for gaming, so maybe someone else will have better ideas.

The game might be trying to play a video for which your system does not have the right codec installed. If this is Indeo then it exists on Win7 to Win10, but has not been registered by default for security reasons.
