AA= SIMON THE SORCERER 1 and 2 CD version

AA doesnt run under DOS
AA doesnt run under doxbox
AA runs poorly under windows

how poorly?
mouse is too fast
sound is bad
aspect ratio is wrong

why? AA is a win95 program and they removed the DOS EXE file

AA only runs under SCUMMVM

Then it won't be the first old Windows game that had trouble running on more recent versions of Windows; which is one reason why ScummVM is so cool :). In fact, one of the games I'm working on right now, Starship Titanic, only works with certain compatibility kludges and full-screen only, and even then doesn't work for everyone due to third party libraries and video drivers.

I ran into a lot of problems running Discworld 2 on Windows XP. I got it to work and then I upgraded my graphics card and it gave me errors. It was a nightmare.

Then ScummVM announced support for it.
