This is the error message I receive when I try to run this game:
Direct Draw Error
DDERR_Unsupported in file
F:\MM8src\MM8\Code\ screen 16.cpp at line number: 2542
I used to play this game all the time when I had a Windows 98 computer, it was one of my favorite games as a kid, and I am really hoping this game will work. It was one of my favorite fantasy games of all time, that and HOMM2 and HOMM3.
-Thank you in advance,
Althought not the same line number, a similar error returned this for 7.
Since it's the same engine, did you try this.
