11th Hour - 08/22/08 03:30 PM

I think I was given this game many,many years ago and could not get it to run on my PC which I think was windows 98.
Amazon say they have copies which run on windows 2000/vista. Does any one know if the game was up-graded to run on modern PC's

I have not heard of any upgrades oldlady.

EDIT: They both say 95/98 Here.

I played the game several years back on my Windows XP with no problems, but I can't remember if I had to patch it or not.

Thanks for the quick reply Ana. Just checked amazon uk again. Its being sold through amazon by a company called GAMES4U - UK and says it'a a new version for Windows XP & Vista ( not windows 2000 as misquoted ) I was wondering if anyone here in the UK knows as I belive it was supposed to be a classic of its time.

Sorry oldlady, the software is not being distributed legally from what I can tell. Here is the Website and here is what it says:

Quote:
What we sell is the modified software which enables the game to be run on XP and/or VISTA, the game is distributed for FREE on CD-R 0r DVD-R with the software. The games are either in the public domain or their creators are no longer in business.
.


To my knowledge the rights to 11th hour have not been released to the public domain. I am sure someone will correct me if I am wrong.

The fact that you are not buying the game but the software to run it is very shady indeed.

Old Lady,
I have 11th hour installed on my XP computer right now. I don't think I did anything special to install it, but I'm not sure now. It's playing in a small screen (there's probably a way to enlarge it but it's not that important to me) and so far, playing flawlessly.

Don't know about any recent updates, but I needed a patch to install 11th Hour on my XP-machine. I haven't played it yet but it started up alright so I think it will be fine smile
