I've had quite a bit of trouble getting several sci32 games to run under xp. i can almost finish sq6, but can't pick up the gallstones or pills in stellar's body.|
My main concern though, is getting lighthouse running, cuz it won't run at all. Just gives me a weird interpreter/script error, any way i can still get it to run on xp (and i've tried compatibility modes, they never do squat for me).
All help is appreciated, since this is one of my all-time fav sierra adventures.

DOS ports works just fine. But some times ago i played those games on XP without problems (on another machine). ::) I guess it's caused by too fast CPU leads to overflow/etc in scripts. No ideas how to fix that atm ???
hehe, yeah, LSL7 DID work fine, but then it quit working for some reason.|
mostly having to do with it not detecting the correct cdrom (since i have 2, so i get confused in the setup when it asks me whether i want to use both).
i'll try some cpu slowdown utilities, or maybe abandonloader will work
