Just bought this game a few days back and today is the first time i have tried to play. i click to play and it loaded but is all a serries of lines across the screen. goes all the way to the menu and still is nothing but angry lines of nothing. hit the escape key and left the game thank the gods. updated my graphics and all and reloaded it still all lines on the screen despite being 1% more legible. any ideas how i can play this classic gem of my childhood?
