This game has to be run on dos box if your system is windows 7 or greater. Dos box has a full screen option that can be set to true in the option.bat file in it′s program file folder.
Place the extracted gizmos and gadgets at your root directory. Ie c:gizmos and gadgets. I recommend renaming the folder to something simple like gizmos.
Now run dos box. Type the following commands and hit enter after each command. Please note that capitalization is important
MOUNT C C:gizmos
ssg -gv -so
Game should run for you.
Still no sound, after changing the compatibility, on windows XP
How do I do what the readfirst file says?
There are a few command line switches that you can try if you have problems
getting the game to work.
To make sound adjustments:
-si pc speaker
-sb Sound Blaster
-sm Microsoft Sound System
-sn sound off
For example, to run with Sound Blaster settings you′d type
ssg -sb (enter)
to start the game.
This is great for being able to play the basic game, build the vehicles, solve puzzles, and throw bananas at monkeys, but it′s not quite the same as the original. There′s no voice, there′s no puzzle customization (for turning off the puzzle types you don′t like), and the music/sound is not quite what I remember it being.
