Question about Sierra Entertainment Pharaoh And Cleopatra for Windows

1 Answer

Pharaoh and cleopatra freezes constantly

I just bought Pharaoh and Cleopatra. I own a Windows 7 but I have it operate the game at Windows XP Service pack 2 because its more compatible. During play, the game will freeze often at random. I've tried to fix it but can't seem to find the problem. Any help would be great thank you so much!

Probably a bit late, but here are the best fixes I found:

First off, you want to:
*** Change compatibility to Windows XP (SP3)
*** Disable Visual Themes
*** Run as admin

Next you want to:

Download the pharaoh exe files (these are for modifying the resolution - this is what worked for me - I used the lowest res available, so I cannot comment on higher ones)

Or you can try this fix:

"Download ImageCFG
Extract the .zip and place imagecfg.exe in your game's folder.
Create a batch file. First, open up notepad and paste the following.

@echo off
if not exist Pharaoh.exe goto end
if exist Pharaoh.exe.bak goto end
copy Pharaoh.exe Pharaoh.exe.bak
imagecfg -u Pharaoh.exe
imagecfg -a 0x1 Pharaoh.exe
pause
:end

Save as a .bat file and place it in your Pharaoh installation folder.
Run the batch file.

This will change the CPU affinity of Pharaoh so it will run on one CPU core."

I dont think you can . I have all the reel deal slots and none of them work with windows 7 directly. There is ittle or no help getting this to work on the EFX support site.
I am just taking the loss and throwing them all out none are worth anything to anybody I cant even give them away.
If there was a Windows 7 help on the support site this could be easier on all who have these.
Probably will no longer purchase the product, because the second there is a change we will be buying them all over again to meet the changes.
