does anyone still play this game and if so how can I run it on XP? I installed it and made it so it was under windows 98/ME compatibility but after I got past the character creation screen it went all black and I was leasving pointer trails all over it that didn't disappear
it was a fun game that I was looking to play again when I was bored

Been awhile, but yeah, a classic rpg!
Have you updated to version 1.2? The games auto-updater prolly doesn't work anymore so you'll need to find the patch elsewhere. I recall the game playing perfectly on my XP box after applying the patch.

weird it was patched to 1.2, it didn't work on XP unless I set the compatibility to 98/ME. I'm going to try to reinstall it and try the base game
looks like I was wrong, the 1.2 version works fine on XP

Running the gauntlet once again sounds like good old time fun!

I've got it and can send it to you as an e-mail attachment if you like. It's 26MB.

Better yet, I just put the file up for download at RapidShare.
If anyone else wants the Nox add-on, it can be downloaded up to 10 times over the next 90 days:

Oh I remember this game. My father and I used to play it. He was better at it. I kinda sucked, especially when facing Hecuba. I really loved the wizard class and you could get more money for your earthly clothes in a shop just outside that wizard castle. Warrior wasn't too bad either. Conjurer required too much skill.
