I just got a CD-ROM of my favorite computer game from the mid-90s! After several tries with different emulators, though, I'm having no luck getting it to run on my machine. Can you help me play
The jewel case I was sent didn't have system requirements on it, just installation instructions for Windows 3.1, Windows 95, and an unspecified version of Macintosh, but I've been able to find online these system requirements for the Mac version
and these for the Windows version:
IBM-PC or compatible 486/25SX or faster,
4MB RAM, 8 MB recommended,16-bit sound card,
and a double speed CD-ROM drive or higher, mouse,
DOS 5.0 or higher, Windows 3.1 or Windows 95,
Super VGA (256 color mode, also supports thousands
of colors video mode if available to provide extremely
realistic video display.)
I've got a MacBook Pro running OS 10.6, and my girlfriend has a MacBook Pro running OS 10.4. Here's what I've tried so far:
, by itself - eventually get to run the "install.exe" file on the CD - but then when I try to run the newly created "degree.exe" file, the disc whirls and nothing happens.
- Trying to run the "install.exe" file, I get told that there's an issue with shell.dll, similar to this issue
with other Broderbund title, Myst - but don't understand the recommendations at the link.
I'm not an expert at any of this kind of stuff, so I might be making an obvious mistake here. Thank you so much for your help.
