CD version installed on WinXp with the 3DFX patches. Looks like it can't find the game.dat file but have Glidos
pointed to the right directory. Info on this game is pretty minimal anyone have any ideas to get it going?

For the record Glidos runs Blood and TR1 like a dream on the same system (see my sig) .

Is this a versioin of Screamer 2 from Steam , GoG or similar?

No, it's the CD version. I installed it via D-Fend if that makes a difference. So the install location
would be c:\program files\D-fend\virtualHD\S2.

Using D-Fend could be the problem. Glidos is supplied with an altered version of DOSBox and needs to use that.

Ok, so use Glidos to install the game? Wasn't aware there was an option for that in the menu.

I don't know much about D-Fend, but the usual way to use Glidos is to use the Adjust button to get into the config menu and from there set up the path to Screamer 2's exe and the disc image. Then you can start Screamer 2 from Glidos.

D-Fend is just a front end for dosbox. I only used it to install Screamer 2 on my XP system as trying to do it "straight way"
XP was throwing up errors during the setup. Maybe copying the install from my win98 system will work, I'll try it.
