Descent:Freespace Problem
« on: March 11, 2006, 07:20:16 AM »
Well I finally decided to install my FS1 again on my this computer, but when i go to install it, it gives me a 16bit error, when i install it through another computer then copy it over, and i run the program, it opens the program quickly then closes in a black flash. :confused1

Odd. I was hoping that a proper install would get it to work. No idea what's causing the problem then.

here I attached a copy of the instructions I used on my computer to get freespace to work.  In my case The great war worked but but the Silent threat didn't.  I got this from microsoft but did not get the actual link.  Hope it works for you
