Starshot Space Circus Fever on Windows 10

Post by seepee » Tue Jul 09, 2019 5:01 pm

So I recently got Starshot and I wanted to play it of course, but I cant get it to work. There are solutions to fix it on windows 7 and all but nothing for windows 10. Since the game doesn't install normally, just a simply put in the disc and play game, I can't do much to edit the files. Is there someway to play it on Windows 10?

Create a folder on your hard drive e.g. c:\games\starshot and copy everything from a CD into it. Then rename or delete Intro, IntroD and IntroF.

Install nGlide and launch the game with c:\games\starshot\starshot.exe.

Does it return to desktop? Black screen?

It doesn't really do much of anything. I click on the .exe file, the "do you want this application to make changes to your device" box pops up, I hit yes and then nothing happens after that. The only thing that works is the setup screen in the 'setup' folder, it says it's launching the game but then nothing happens with that either

What if you try to run .exe as an administrator? Right click on starshot.exe and select Run as administrator.

Nothing happens except for the compatibility option popping up. I already set it to Windows 95/98/XP and still nothing happens

Works fine for me with W10 and GTX 960. I don't know, maybe try setting Screen resolution: By desktop and Refresh rate: By desktop in nGlide configurator.
