Hi @ all.
I got problems with the game "Magic: The Gathering", as I use Windows XP Professionals but unfortunately the Game doesn´t seem to work with this System, although it ran perfect on win98.
Can someone help me ? Is there some tool to make it work ?!

Is it "Magic The Gathering Deluxe" or another program?

If it's a DOS program, I propose you to try using DOSBox. It's the best DOS emulator for WinXP.

A quick search on your favorite search engine will give you the program easily.

I believe he means shandalar/the microprose game. There are 3 potential solutions:
1) Install it on 98, then copy the installed files over to XP.
2) Install on XP (without using compatibility mode), then apply the manalink 1.3.2 unofficial patch.
3) Download it from the-underdogs.org. The version downloadable from there installs and works perfectly on XP.

As Cyberswipe said.

I myself have Manalink and manage to run Shandalar fine. There is a lot of bugs in that game tough, a lot of cards which doesn't do what they really should etc. But that's an old version of the rules too, they were still using "interupts" back then... I think you won't get cards newer than Arabian Nights either. ;)

For the sake of the people who tried helping, I'll translate this second post:

"I got it to work myself, thanks to anyone who looked anyway..."

Now you see the violence inherent in the system!
