This game is for Windows 95/98/ME. And you dont specify what is your problem. The game doesn't install? Or after installation, it doesn't run? What exactly happens?

Anyway, if you're having problems running the game, you can try to:

If you're on XP or Vista:
- Install latest Direct-X (9 or 10, according to your OS, on Win98 and ahead you can install up to Direct-X 9): http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=2da43d38-db71-4c1b-bc6a-9b6652cd92a3&DisplayLang=en

- If on XP/Vista, right-click on the game EXE and set compatibility mode (select properties, then compatibility, and on "compatibility mode" select to run the program as Windows 98 (try all options to see if it runs on any) - and try also the checkboxes below, to run the game in 256 color mode, on 640x480 resolution and to disable "visual themes".

Also update your graphics driver to the latest version available.

It has DINPUT.dll error


Dinput.dll errors usually appear when a game or other software program is started. and are caused in one way or another by an issue with Microsoft DirectX.

The dinput.dll file is one of many files contained in the DirectX software collection. Since DirectX is utilized by most Windows based games and advanced graphics programs, dinput.dll errors usually show up only when using these programs.

Solutions:

1. For Dinput.dll not found. Reinstalling Direct X should fix this.

2. Install the latest version of Microsoft DirectX. Chances are, upgrading to the latest version of DirectX will fix the dinput.dll not found error.

Note: Microsoft often releases updates to DirectX without updating the version number or letter so be sure to install the latest release even if your version is technically the same.

Note: The latest version of DirectX should be installed no matter if you're running Windows 7, Windows Vista, or Windows XP. The installation may include DirectX 11, DirectX 10, and DirectX 9 files, but they run side-by-side without problem on all of these operating systems.

3. Assuming the latest DirectX version from Microsoft doesn't fix the dinput.dll error you're receiving, look for a DirectX installation program on your game or application CD or DVD. Usually, if a game or other program utilizes DirectX, the software developers will include a copy of DirectX on the installation disc.

Sometimes, though not often, the DirectX version included on the disc is a better fit for the program than the latest version available online.

Uninstall the game or software program and then reinstall it again. Something might have happened to the program files that work with dinput.dll and a reinstall could do the trick.

Restore the dinput.dll file from the latest DirectX software package. If the above troubleshooting steps haven't worked to solve your dinput.dll error, try extracting the dinput.dll individually from the DirectX downloadable package.

4. Update the drivers for your video card. While it's not the most common solution, in some situations updating the drivers for the video card in your computer could correct this DirectX issue.

I cant download directx 8.1 what should i do???


DirectX is freeware. You can do a Google search using "directx 8.1".

Have you tried one of the following sites?:
http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=4938
http://www.brothersoft.com/downloads/directx-8.1.html
http://www.hitsquad.com/smm/programs/DirectX_8/
http://www.oldversion.com/download-DirectX-8.1.html

http://www.softwarepatch.com/windows/directx-80a.html

Note:
DirectX 8.1 is for Windows 98/Me. It is the highest release of DirectX that will run on Windows 98 or Windows Me (later versions such as DirectX 9 will NOT run on these versions of Windows). Windows 2000/XP/Vista users should get the later release though.
Best of luck to you, from 11407336.

I got problem with d3dx9_29dll was not found.anyone could help?


There are quite a few different ways that d3dx9_29.dll errors may show up on your PC. Some of the more common d3dx9_29.dll errors are listed here:
  • "D3DX9_29.DLL Not Found"

  • "File d3dx9_29.dll not found"

  • "Error while starting game executable - couldn't load DLL file d3dx9_29.dll."

  • "D3dx9_29.dll is missing"

  • "D3DX9_29.DLL is missing. Replace D3DX9_29.DLL and try again."

  • "D3dx9_29.dll not found. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem."

  • "Missing component d3dx9_29.dll"

  • "This application failed to start because d3dx9_29.dll was not found!"
D3dx9_29.dll errors usually appear when a software program, most often a game, is started. Occasionally, d3dx9_29.dll errors will display after a game is loaded but right before the game begins. Unlike many other dll errors which can have complicated causes and fixes, d3dx9_29.dll issues are caused in one way or another by a single issue - some kind of problem with Microsoft DirectX. The d3dx9_29.dll file is one of many files contained in the DirectX software collection. Since DirectX is utilized by most Windows based games and advanced graphics programs, d3dx9_29.dll errors usually show up only when using these programs.

Resolution

Important Note: Do not, under any circumstances, download the d3dx9_29.dll DLL file individually from any "DLL download site." There are a number of different reasons that downloading DLLs from these sites are never a good idea.

Note: If you've already downloaded d3dx9_29.dll from one of those DLL download sites, remove it from wherever you put it and continue with the following steps.

1. Restart your computer if you haven't yet done so.

The d3dx9_29.dll error might be a fluke or one-time issue and a simple restart could clear it up completely. It's unlikely this will fix the problem, but restarting is always a good first troubleshooting step.

2. Install the latest version of Microsoft DirectX 9. Chances are, upgrading to the latest version of DirectX 9 will fix the d3dx9_29.dll not found error.

Note: Microsoft often releases updates to DirectX 9 without updating the version number or letter so be sure to install the latest release even if your version is technically the same.

Note: Are you a Windows Vista user with DirectX 10? Your game or program may still need DirectX 9 files to run properly so give the installation a try. Don't worry, both versions of DirectX can be run side by side in Windows Vista.

3. Assuming the latest DirectX version from Microsoft doesn't fix the d3dx9_29.dll error you're receiving, look for a DirectX installation program on your game or application CD or DVD. Usually, if a game or other program utilizes DirectX, the software developers will include a copy of DirectX on the installation disc.

Sometimes, though not often, the DirectX version included on the disc is a better fit for the program than the latest version available online.

4. Uninstall the game or software program and then reinstall it again. Something may have happened to the files in the program that work with d3dx9_29.dll and a reinstall could do the trick.

5. Restore the d3dx9_29.dll file from DirectX 9. If the above standard troubleshooting steps haven't worked to solve your d3dx9_29.dll error, try extracting the d3dx9_29.dll individually from the DirectX 9 package.

6. Update the drivers for your video card. While it's not the most common solution, in some situations updating the drivers for the video card in your computer could correct this DirectX issue.
