I know there is a similar question to this one, but the person asking that question was running the game on a virtual machine on a Mac. I'm currently trying to run it on an HP Pavilion dv7 quad core with a Radeon 6770M graphics card and a Core i7 processor. I've tried different compatibility settings, making it administrative on opening, and all the other recommended stuff for getting this program to work; nothing has worked. I can hear the music, but I can't see any of the opening animations. And when I ALT-TAB out and go back in, the title screen is static and in black and white. Can anyone help?

And you have experimented with all the colour/resolution settings on the Compatibility tab? –  Hex Jan 14 '12 at 12:37
The 256 color and 640x480resolution checkboxes? Yes, I've tried those too, and it won't work. –  Brookensteen Jan 14 '12 at 14:35
I couldn't get it to work on win7 without using a virtual machine running windows xp, and even then sometimes it would work and sometimes It just wouldn't. –  Ashley Nunn Jan 14 '12 at 15:48
The main reason is that it was programmed in assembly language (!) and as such, heavily relies upon the Windows 9x x86 architecture. –  Jason Berkan Jan 27 '12 at 23:11
Odd, this game works just fine for me on the same computer with the default configuration. Have you changed anything pertaining to the graphics drivers? –  William Mar 15 '12 at 3:11
