Hello all!

It's been a while since I've posted here and I'm excited to try some of the new opts out! I've upgraded to Windows 10 x64, and I can't seem to get the game to install from the original CD's because I'm on a x64 system. Is there a workaround for this? I've seen some other people on here getting it to work on x64 systems, but that could just be with the GOG version or something. I've looked elsewhere for old games in general and found that it seems to be impossible. Is this true? Anyone have any ideas or tips?

Thanks in advance!

It's better to use the GOG version though, easier to install and configure...and not that costly

I have the Steam version myself and it works fine. I still have my modified installer disks as a backup though, it's just a bit more work.
