(re: re: re: RAMA: Do any of you remember that one?)
Ran into two problems trying to install on XP. First, I clicked setup.exe, heard the fanfare (didn’t see anything), and then the app hung. This happened to me before with GK2. I haven’t found anyone else who’s had this problem but I know it’s due to some kind of conflict between my computer and a specific file that’s part of the install program. From my GK2 experience I knew how to work around it (if anyone else has this problem, email me and I can tell you what to do).
Okay, then I installed (didn’t install DirectX when prompted!) and tried to launch the game. I got a script error that looked a lot like the script error I got when I tried to run Phantasmagoria II on XP. I tried a few things (changed screen resolution, used compatibility mode) but didn’t put a lot of effort into trying to get it up.
I have a Win98 machine that I’m sure RAMA will run on. I will try it at some point. I need to get a switch box so I can swap between my two computers without it being such a hassle (they share the same monitor). Maybe after I pay off my Christmas bills…
