Post The Blackstone Chronicles

I don't know how old this game is but it's unusual.Kind of creepy. I'm having trouble with the game sticking though. I don't know if I did something wrong or my sound card isn't right. I was almost at the end then the game kept sticking.Hanging, studdering.I tried reinstalling it and still the problem exists. Anybody have any ideas? It might be way old but it's alot of fun to play. If I could run it right that is. Thanks. The Blackstone Chronicles

Never heard of it.

What are its system requirements and what's the copyright date on the box?

I guess it's not all that old then. What are your computer's specs?

I assume you're running Windows 98, your Pentium is at least 300 and you've got 128 RAM. If this isn't the case that's probably your problem. Box recommendations are the MINIMUM needed to run the game (like Microsoft saying Windows 98 will run on 32 MB of RAM. Ha! Ever tried that? You can feel your beard growing while the Microsoft hamster limps along on its hamster wheel). The obvious things to check are your video card's RAM, CD ROM speed (if you're playing the game off of the CD). Also make sure your hard drive isn't almost full, sometimes that slows games down.

Please know that I'm not an expert on this machine. I'm learning every day but somrtimes I still get stumped. Where do I find out how much RAM I've got? What else do I have to know Oh Mighty One?

Click on the "System" icon in "Control Panel." Click on the tab that says "General" (if it's not there already).
