Hey, thanks for your help... but I'm only able to play the game for about 30 seconds before the mouse changes and the game crashes. On DosBox, they've stated that the game is runable, but not playable, and someone confirms the crash within the first minute. How did you get it to work, might I ask?

The same for me, no more than 30 seconds!
