Progress is always good! I have a hard time getting off my duff and actually making a decision sometimes too... especially when there is a good bit of money involved! nice larger 22 and 24 inch monitors can be had for $100 or less right now. Just helped a friend pick out a nice 22" at Amazon for about $95. Can't wait to hear what you've decided to get!

Has anyone got this to run on Windows 10?

There's a guy here on YouTube who did.

He has information on the page about this - click on where it says "show more."

He says the following:

Technical Notes

* I played this game in a Windows 10 environment. (64-bit)
* Bought my version at 'Big Fish Games.' Played perfect on modern hardware. Buy it here: Heliopolis Prophecy
* Don't forget to play it in 640 x 480 px. resolution.
* You can use the wrapper 'dgVoodoo' to make the mouse in the main-menu even more smooth if you want.

Thanks. The version in my store doesn't work on Windows 10 though. I get this error when I run Eg2.exe: Direct Draw (DDERR_UNSUPPORTED) : CDirectDrawWindow::Open

Since Direct Draw is part of your video card, could that be where the fault lies?

I found this page here and am wondering if you have tried installing the game in compatibility mode?

That's a great resource post for a lot of very old games, Marian.

Thanks, but there's actually no setup file for the game. The whole unpacked game directory is in the zipped file. So just an .exe to run the game, and that doesn't work.

You can try ddraw.dll from DGVoodoo!
I had not run this game on Windows 10, but on Windows 7 everything is fine.
