Please Help Me
I run Stars! in Oracle Virtual Box (running Windows XP) on my Win7 64 machine. This program is free, and useful for running other 16bit programs. I would be happy to walk you through setting it up on your machine. Do you have access to Windows XP installation software?
You can download the Oracle software at virtualbox. PM me here if you care to schedule some time to go over the setup.
Am quoting this because another new player with a Win7 64-bit machine is trying to get Stars! to run. Running virtual machine failed, probably due to a basic Win7 purchase vs. the more expensive ones. DosBox also is a commonly suggested solution, but seems to require more setup. At least that is my computer-challenged impression.
As if Neil hasn't done enough for others, like remapping for latest Dynamic Duos game !!
