Myth II: Soulblighter won't run [SOLVED]

Postby bjwil1991 » 2017-11-13 @ 02:43

I have a copy of Myth II: Soulblighter for Windows, and when I try to run the game, even if there isn't anything running in the background, I get this error message:

Error message when trying to launch Myth II.


It's trying to run on a Socket 370 system with the following specs:

Shuttle AV18 V3 motherboard
VIA Apollo Pro 133A chipset
VIA AC'97 Audio (Sound Blaster compatible)
512MB SD-RAM PC-133
VIA C3 700A 700MHz CPU
200GB Maxtor 6Y200P0 IDE HDD (DMA enabled in Windows) <-- Limited to 32GB using SeaTools for DOS since the drive was used in the K6/2-300 system previously which has HDD space limitation up to 32GB
LG CD Burner (DMA enabled in Windows)
Gigabyte 52x CD-ROM Drive (DMA enabled in Windows)
3.5" 1.44MB FDD
Windows 98SE
400W Diablotek PSU
Compaq Keyboard and Mouse
JBL Platinum speakers with monitor mounts (special CRT monitors).
ASUS V3800M/32M (nVidia Riva TNT2 M64 AGP 4x/2x)
RealTek RTL8139D FastEthernet PCI Card
NEC MultiSync LCD1530V

Every other game runs without issues, just this game doesn't want to throw the dice.

Should also mention, I have enough storage space on my HDD:

Enough storage space.

Salvation Army. It looks like Command and Conquers/Civilization mashup developed by Bungie.
