  5. I’ve mounted the ISO, can see it as a drive when I back out to “This PC,” but the game is still asking for a disc when I try to run it 🙁 How do I fix this?

  6. I can’t get the game to run at fullscreen, only windowed mode. The only screensize it lets me play is 300 x 200, and I need anyone’s help to resolve this. If i try to run fullscreen it says I’m not direct 9x adapter compatible. It’s really frustrating. Otherwise runs great!

  7. Still says I can’t run it without a disk, even though I copied and pasted the .exe file from NoCD folder into folder that I unzipped the file to, super confusing (might just be me to be honest, but I have no idea what to do now!)
