Additional Comments

TO attempt to run this game you will need a program to set the video mode to software system memory setting. Then set your linux xwindow screen to 16 bit color mode or it will throw a fit about it since there is no 3d acceleration. Then you need a no cd patch which can be found online due to the cd-rom not found. The game is stuck when Jill says I do not know what happened. Then they just stand there at the mansion door with breathing movements.
