    "Lego Island": 15 years and one architecture later and it still works!

    Hello again.

    Today I don't really have an exciting post, but here goes:

    Lego Island works on Windows 8 Release Preview x64!

    Yep, that's right, a 16-bit game on a 64-bit computer. It works fairly well but requires d3drm.dll to be added to the install folder, then changing the game so that it is on MMX emuation not RGB, Direct3D or Ramp emulation.

    I have a few video clips(no installation clips; laptop crashed while recording "Oops, you have to put the CD in your computer").
