    Theme Park Inc.


    I wasn't sure if this was the right section, but I was pretty sure it was.

    I'm attempting to run Theme Park Inc., a game made by EA and Bullfrog in 2001. Obviously it was not designed to run on anything newer than Windows 98/2000.

    Likewise, the game will not run. It attempts to run, but the only thing that manifests is a dark purple rectangle toward the left of the screen, and some sort of roller coaster sound effect. Then it crashes with the error "Game.exe has stopped working". I have tried all compatibility settings to no avail. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    I apologise for double posting. My old laptop has Windows 8 Consumer Preview on it, and upon testing it on there I did get an extra error, "Engine failed to initialize", and then "Game.exe has stopped working." This was on every compatibility level.

    I also tested it on XP, for which it worked for many years ago, and that too resulted in "Engine failed to initialize."

IDK what this post should go under, so I decided Help and Support would be nice. You see, I installed a MAC OSX theme for my Windows 8.1 and then I hated it so I uninstalled it. But it left icons. After COMPLETELY uninstalling it (I promise!) I removed EVERYTHING but still the icons were...
After upgrading to Windows 8.1 the default theme is missing. Is it removed when going from 8.0 to 8.1? Also the images used on the new backgrounds are fuzzy and pixelated.
