  3. I’ve installed it on my Windows 11 laptop. Even though it marks it as a virus, the file looks safe to me even though the installer tool looked a bit sus. Also I didn’t have to mount anything, I unpacked the zip and hit setup.exe in the file. It was a pretty smooth experience. Love the old nostalgic game!

  4. Im on windows 11 and after i run the game it opens the program compatibility system and it says that the app cant run because it causes security or performance issues on windows. I was able to play it normally last year, while I was using windows 10, but now this happens. Does anyone know how to fix it?
