    Picked up this great-looking, great-sound bit of Star Wars stuff earlier. It installs, I've got some RegEdit Windows 7 work around: http://www.racketboy.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=26907&start=20

    Star Wars Behind The Magic Win 7 Fix
    1. Install Star Wars in Windows XP or older Windows, use the default \BTM Folder.
    2. Copy the Installed \BTM folder to a Mem Stick.
    3. Copy the \BTM Folder to the Win 7 Computer. Be sure the folder is C:\BTM
    4. Open Note Pad and Create a New Text File called: BTMx64 Install.reg
    5. Copy paste the Install Text, Save and then run to update the Registry. Note D is the disc reader.

    "Source Dir"="D:\\"
    "InstallType"=dword:00000009
    6. Create a shortcut of the Behind.exe and add to your Start Menu.
    7. may the Force be with you. Enjoy!

    Done all of it. Boot and...the image is static. If I alt tab in and out I can see different images - it does seem to be working behind the scenes by I can't get the images running.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    Don't bother, it's 50 minutes of George Lucas sitting in his office at Skywalker Ranch doing the nastiest sounding farts. Every now and again he says "that's the magic baby" and waves around a lit 100$ bill to get rid of the smell.

    Yeah. There's loads of stuff on it. Can't get the bastard to work.

    Just introducing the boy to Star Wars and this interactive encyclopedia seems really cool. Might have to install W95 just to get it going! :)

    I'm going to regret typing this but you really are one of those people that really should get a mac. You appear to be a fucking disaster near a PC. I know your stubbornness will make you scoff at the idea but have you seen your own thread creation history recently!

    Perhaps. But it's just a compatibility issue. The thing is from 1998 and I'm running W7 on my work laptop.

    My PC runs like the Millennium Falcon only not as fast. :)

    A mac isn't going to make 14 year old PC software work.

    Have you tried running BTM.exe in Win 98 compatibility mode?

    Haven't tried a VM, Boab. Never done it before. I'll have a look.

    DDevil, yeah, don't even get sound in W98, W85 and WinXP comp modes.

    Run it W98 in a VM and it's as choppy as fuck.

    Oh well. Fuck it.
