Postby BMoore_1986 » Sun Dec 30, 2018 3:40 am

I folks i wanted ot dust off this old game and found this site, i still ahve my original 6 disk set but there is a hefty scratch in disk 1 and i can't seem to get past 99% on launching the setup app. Does anyone have any ideas? I can upload some pics of the original 6 discs if anyone wants proof. Thanks.

first clean off with window cleaner then dry off, then try to install, If it still won't install use a very, very, very light coating of Vaseline, very light coat or you might gum it up, Very light.

In the UK there are stores where you can have media polished and cleaned:

I did find one based in the USA that does it via mail:

The vaseline thing looks handy if you are in hurry, I'll have to give it a try next time I have some damaged media.

Are you up and running BMoore_1986?
