No sound on oil tycoon 2 game

I have recently purchased a trilogy of PC tycoon games on CD One of the games was 'Oil Tycoon 2' - and the game plays perfectly, but there is no sound. I have 4 operating systems on my PC (Windows Vista - Win 7 - Windows 8.1 and Windows 10) It plays on all of them - but with no sound. My PC is a Dell 9500 desktop with 12 GB of memory and an AMD Radeon Sound card. All other games I have play perfectly including sound. I can go in and out of the different operating systems especially as some games play better on the different operating systems. I am not really a computer buff so any info would be helpful Chas

the solution on the cd disc is to remove the cd out then uninstall the all games installed in this cd drive replace cd drive when it comes to uninstalling sim delux is goto where saved games in sim deluxe and save folder to a different location then uninstall then re-install with new cd drive and hunt net for nc patches for games that work if this still doesn't work time for re-install windows from scratch if you have a spare hard drive use it to copy all game saves to it then redo windows and all drivers then all games then place saves back into place where they came from. good luck.

I am going to say yes. I have basicaly the same as you. The game will lag a bit unless you trun down the settings (Visual) to low. You wont notice the difference in how it looks, but the game will play better. the game is worthe it.. I love it.

If you get it going look me up on the game Pincushion_LTC..

Does oil tycoon runs on windows 7


If you're referring to the Global Star version of Oil Tycoon, then yes it does work. When installing, do not install DirectX Media as the movies play fine. I wasn't able to get the music working, but I don't play it anyway.
You'll have to change the compatibility settings to the following:
Run as Windows Xp (Service Pack 2) Disable Visual Themes Disable Desktop Composition
Good luck!

Railroad tycoon restarts computer while playing


Hello there,

Usually this happens when the computer is compatible to run the game but not compatible to keep it playing,,, meaning that the computer can execute the game (get it started) but fails to keep it going. The cause of this problem is the graphics adapter so a new graphics card will solve this problem, and remember when buying a graphics card make sure you buy one that is better than the one the game requires.

I hope i solved your problem.
