Additional Comments

Using Windows 98 in winecfg.

In order to run run the game one need to patch the content of the CD in order to get rid of the famous Director Player 5.0 error message "This program requires at least 3MB of free virtual memory to run." using this method https://www.sacah.net/2008/01/how-to-edit-director-player-60-to-stop.html.
I created a folder called ~/krakelsabc and copied the CDs content there and then patched the damm.exe-file with the patcher from the link. After that I mounted ~/krakelsabc as a drive in winecfg with "CD-ROM" attribute and run "damm.exe" successfully in order to start the game.


The game needs to be started from the CD, there are no .exe-files installed to the hard drive.
