NO, this is an old 2005 code from Calvinus and was never designed to work on such an O/S. I managed to run it win Win7 on my PC though (in windowed mode and with UAC and AV off)

Hello,

I am running the game with windows 8, evrything works fine but the "map colors". They are weird, as I recall playing this game a long time ago these colors do not match.
I tried switching from 32 to 16bit colors in the setup, change compatibility mod on win7, xp, etc.. but either the game crash all the time or nothing change.
I used to play it on my old computer with win7 and do not had any problem.
Thank you in advance for any help.

PS: I found out that my lap top for "road trip" is equiped with Intel card which seems to be the problem as I read on a different post.

The game was developped in 2005, light years before Win8, so it's already a miracle that it works. The developper is no longer active on this product and it can only be used "as is".

I just got this game yesterday and it is working with windows using XP compatability mode. It crashes occasionally though.
