Hover game from windows 95

  Madrat 00:18 20 Jan 04

Can anyone tell me how I can get the hover game from the windows 95 CD to run on XP.

Ive tryed telling it to run as win 95 in the compatability file but the game just frezzes on start up. My kids loved this game and so did I and would love to be able to use it again.

i downloaded 'Hover!' from a link at the bottom of this page click here

it installed and runs in XP for me, with and without choosing compatabilty mode, but was warned about not having a 256 color video driver.

sorry if that doesn't help you, but at least you know it can run on XP.

im using the earlier version of directX9, and not 9.0b?

fiatman, the zip file is straight off the win95 CD, so i wouldn't expect any different result for you.

just thought id post the link in case anyone else wanted a go.

i installed DX9.0b and the game still runs, so it can't be that.

from Hover help file;


Your computer may not respond if:
- You have reserved a large amount of RAM for a RAM disk or SmartDrive.
- You are low on disk space (for the page file).
- You have disabled Virtual Memory.
