About running this game fullscreen:
As other have already mentioned, Earthworm Jim Special Edition (and a bunch of other early Win95 games, such as Pitfall: Mayan Adventure) won't run fullsceen on 64-bit Windows because it relies on a 16-bit library called DisplayDib (dispdlb.dll) to get direct access to video.

But I've found three potential solutions to this conundrum:
1) DxWnd, a tool which can make old Windows game switch from fullscreen to windowed mode, and vice-versa;
2) winevdm, a 16-bit Windows programs emulator for 64-bit Windows systems;
3) Boxedwine, another 16-bit Windows emulator which is based on Wine, a Windows compatibility layer for Linux systems. They have already tested it on Earthworm Jim demo, which is the reason I'm posting on this thread.

I couldn't test any of those yet because I'm using Linux now (so I'm going to try Wine, a Linux tool, so I hopefully can play my copy of Pitfall: the Mayan Adventure), but I hope at least one of these three tools can help you guys.

PS: I'm not allowed to post links at this moment, but it's easy to find those programs on Google.

Thanks for the info. I will try to test them and report my results here if I get to test them.
