From what little research I've done....

It looks like the only way to get it to play in full screen mode AND be able to save/load is to play in Windows 95 compatibility mode and to disable visual themes. Hope that helps

It's in the Compatibility tab. When you right click on the desktop icon, you go to Properties and then to Compatibility.

I have installed the game now and i did what you told me it goes full screen mode but the actual game is small and there is a black border around it,

I managed to save the game but i cannot load it as no box appears?

Why is this and do you know a solution?

Regards Paul
