I see people saying that this works in Windows 7 64-bit, but I can't get it to work. All I get is a blank screen; it doesn't reach the menu, and the only way to get out is to do a hard reset (no ctrl-alt-del even).
The Windows error log says:
Nnot sure how much that helps. I get two such errors logged at the same timestamp whenever I try it.
This is on a Core i7 Quad with a GeForce GT 320M graphics card. I tried using the compatibility modes for Windows 98/ME, Windows 95, and none at all; it was the same result each time. I also tried launching it in 256 colors and even 640x480 resolution (modifying conquer.ini also).
Now, I do have an old XP machine that I can drag out, and I have verified that the game runs properly on it even in high-res mode (which looks great, by the way). But it's kind of a hassle and I'd like to be able to play on my shiny new machine instead.
Can you help? I'd be happy to provide any other information you might need.
