How To Get Up And Running
@Judas Maybe make a different version of those pink "see-thru" textures and upload it after you're done with it? I'm sure as hell Win 8 doesn't read pink as a transparent color.
I don't think Machines supports the fancy see-through .png files we have nowadays. Don't know for sure though.
@Judas Yeah it shouldn't be able to use .pngs. Machines is just told to ignore pixels of that magenta color. And I didn't have any issues at all with machines except for performance. So yeah, Win8 just gives different weird results I guess.
I have the same problem. Have you been able to fix it?
I was so excited when the game and menus were loading, until I tried to play it
windows 8.1 with compatibilitymode on windows xp and also tried it on windows 98 mode.
Back in '99 i had the original game on discs and played it on a windows 98 pc.
Somehow, even then, the same visual errors occured frequently, not always, but more like 6/10 times
Anyone who might know a solution here?
This might simply be of no use, but I'll post it just in case.
I'm using Windows 7, and I haven't used any compatibility settings at all. Have you tried running the game without any specific configuration?
Newcomer here. waves
Just installed it last night and now I have this problem.
And another thing is that when i run the game, its not being run as any task in my task bar. If I alt tab, I have to use the task manager to get back in. As seen here.
Im win 7 pro 64 bit. Haven't been running any compatibility settings. I have SLI implemented on two nvidia gtx 970s. i7 etc... and I just want to play my old flame :C
I noticed that you are using Daemon Tools. Have you tried using Magic Disc?
Here is the dll-files fixer:
I'm not entirely sure what that program actually does to help me. It doesnt do anything for DLL files except have a search bar where you can type in the name of a file that you already know. I don't even know if a DLL file is my problem and if it is, which one? There's more files than that one. And that file fixer only lets me download one free dll. And I suppose i could TRY magic disc but I have little faith.
Edit: magic disc didn't do anything. Also I forgot to mention earlier that the opening cut scene at the start of the game doesn't show the visuals, I can only hear that 1998 Bass music :P
Oh... Well, that's all I had. Sorry. But others might provide better assistance! :)
I played this game when I was like 10 years old. I am now 28 and never forget it. I tried several times to play and download the game via this site. Recently I finally managed to play it on my macbook! Completed the campaign again and played several skirmish games, i loved it.
