I though that this would be the best place to ask the question about this old game:
I'm having problems with one of the fonts in the game. It's completely illegible.
I'm running Vista 32Bit SP1. I've tried googling it and such, but I can't find much about this, or the game in general actually.
Help would be much appreciated.

I am running on a 1600x900 screen. I don't think it's the resolution (and the game itself is locked at 640x480).
Did you set the game short cut to run as an admin (Compatibility tab) Also on the same tab try check marking "Run in 256 colors" . . . =)
One recurring problem that seems to happen could be this:

Did you install in default folder?

Try installing OUTSIDE c:\program files.

Use c:\games\ or soemthing. Might fix...?
Holy Cow I remember playing this game years ago.

GameRager: This isn't a compatibility issue that can be fixed easily though. IMO if the game runs fine in Win7 and looks like shite(fonts/etc) in Vista then it has to be a font related issue or something else that's isolated with Vista.....as I played it long ago in XP and it ran fine as well.

You could try adding the -hardmouse parameter to the end of the shortcut target to make it use the alternate mouse handling. The shortcut target will then look something like this:

"C:\Program Files\Darkstone\Darkstone.exe" -hardmouse

...with the path depending on wherever you have Darkstone installed on your end, of course.
