Hi guys n girls! This is my first post here.

I read that wine was made for 16bit orginally and had support to run it.
Recently tried to install it with wine skin but I get a error message at launch.
I have installed several 32bit applications before and they have worked flawlessly but this does not run yet.

Maybe you guys know better?! =)

The game itselft seems to be a 16bit Macromedia Director binary.
(you will be finding the windows game itself in the bottom of this post, you will not be violating any copyright laws since accourding to the former publishing company the CR is now for the Swedish public and classed as a part of swedish culture.)

Here is a dump from wineskin:


Unhandled exception: page fault on read access to 0xffffffff in 16-bit code (129f:2782).

And here is the Orginal binary container (Contains 2 patritions win16& mac PPC):

You can mount this with demontools in windows or in mac you can mount it with Toast.

For those who do not have access to neither of this you can download the extract from the Windows partition directly from my Google drive ( no waiting or anything)

If you have windows XP you can run this game by clicking the STOTNILS.EXE even if some parts of the game is running a bit faster than on a 16bit OS.
