Lurid Land - the Windows 9x version is not working

Postby Gagster » 2019-11-07 @ 03:21

Lurid Land is a game I discovered more than half-a-life ago while browsing a random demo CD; the game is more like a Lode Runner with more focus on puzzles (runs in 800x600).

The game (luckily) got both a MS-DOS version and a Windows 9x version. Using DOSBox combined with Gravis Ultrasound settings applied makes the DOS-version run perfectly, but the Windows 9x version is a tricky beast.

Even by using a combination of the ddraw wrapper of dgVoodoo2 and all the various Windows 10 compatibility settings, this game crashes more or less after the first intro screen.

Having the MS-DOS version of this game emulated perfectly, there really isn't any practical reason for also having the Windows 9x version running without issues, but it would be cool to get this game to run without the use of an emulator.
