HowTo / Notes


At present, do NOT attempt to play SimTower with sound support enabled.

It will crash or hang infinitely, depending on your Windows version setting. In either case, it's not playable.

Disable sound, either by editing SIMTOWER.INI or disabling your sound device in winecfg's audio tab.

This is true as of 1.1.13 and today's latest git (1-23-09).
