ive got windows 8.1 ive downloaded the 1.4 patch and run it under compatibility issue. It declared win xp service pack 3. when i run the game in any mode. or original file the game runs the the screen "need to be in 250 color" not a problem press ok then a black screen loads with new mouse icon. if i wiggle it around it'll freeze up.
I had a similar issue. However I discovered the following: at the black screen hit alt-tab to get back to desktop and then select the loaded (running) game from your toolbar. I am playing continuously for the last few weeks and this is how I load the game every time. I cannot explain why this works, but it works every day.
It's attempting to run the opening video -- which probably bonks out on modern computers. In the DAT folder, there's an EFS.INI file and if you set "video_on=0", it skips the video loading attempt.
