Windows 7: Reversi-like Game

Reversi-like Game

A while back I had a cd that had a bunch of games for windows. One of the games was a great game, sort of like Othello and Reversi. One player used the green squares and the other player (or computer) used the red squares. The pieces had a sort of marble or lightening pattern on them. When one piece took over a space there was a sort of slamming sound. Does anyone know what this game is called ?

Update : I looked for a while and found the cd-rom with the games. The game I'm looking for is called Dominate. But the cd said that I don't have the right version of the software or of windows. The cd case does say Windows 3.1 or Windows 95. Is there any way to get the game for windows 7 ?

Hi Spottedfeather,

You can try installing/running the games using Compatibility Mode with Windows 95 settings. Let me know if that works for you.

I believe you right click the file and in properties it will say compatibility mode. Select the version of Windows from the drop down box be it 3.1 or 95. Not sure how far back it goes though.

Kylehimself is correct; if the CD-ROM does not launch an install process on insertion, then right-click the CD-ROM in your Computer folder and select Explore. Right-click the game's .exe and select Properties. Switch to the Compatibility tab and change the Compatibility to Windows 95. Click OK.

Let me know if that works...

EDIT: To clarify, it might be an old enough game that it doesn't install, but simply runs off the CD-ROM. In that case, follow the instructions in this post.

Try this PinBall (first reply has a method that doesn't require an XP disc, just an XP computer & a flash drive)

Yep sure thing - did you get Space Cadet up & running?

How is Dominate coming along, Spottedfeather? Did our advice help you at all?

Do you trust game reviews / worst game installed but got good review
Do you listen and trust game reviews or judge them for your self. Would you still buy a game if it only got fair review but the price was cheap enough. What game did you install and was deeply disappointed even when the game got a good review
