    Bejeweled Twist question


    My wife and I had to get a new computer. It is an Asus with Windows 8 and a Geforce GT 640 video card. We bought a new Bejeweled Twist CD-ROM (game box is copyrighted 2008), from Walmart and it does not display properly. It displays HUGE and you can only see the top, left portion of the game- maybe one-fourth of what you should see. I tried un-installing and re-installing. I tried compatibly mode and it did not help. I have found no help on the Pop Cap web site.

    My wife has purchased Bejeweled, Bejeweled 2 (Bejeweled 2 works for some strange reason),& Bejeweled 3 in the past, but Bejeweled Twist is her favorite! Does anyone have any suggestions that can make this game work properly? Thank you all for taking the time to read this and for any assistance you can give.

    p.s. All of the above mentioned games worked fine on our old (2003 & 2004) Alienware computers. They were Windows XP. Thanks again!

    Here is link to the tread with the exact question with a possible solution via Virtual machine.

    Bejeweled twist not working

    Like I said to guy it is just much easier to buy it from the Windows Store for $5. There is no Twist yet there but I enjoy the one in the store.

    Thanks, but that answer does not help. I wanted to know if there is a way to make the game we have work on our new system. As you even stated, they do not even have Bejeweled Twist. That is the one that is played at our place. Even if they had Twist for sale, I do not want to give them more money if there is a game fix out there somewhere.

    I guess I will look elsewhere. Until then, the games work fine on my wife's Windows 7 laptop. She will have to be happy with that for the time being! =D Now if I could find a way to play my Nightmare Creatures game! LOL! I really enjoyed that game! Maybe I can find an ancient, working computer somewhere. =) Times, they are a changing! Thanks again!

    It looks you ignore this forum post I gave you the link to which if you read had the solution:
    Bejeweled twist not working

    Because the solution the guy used was using a Virtual Machine. He used VMWare Player so give that a try.

    Well you can play all your old games using emulators or Virtual machines. For Old Dos games people recommend Dosbox.

    Nope. Did not ignore the link! It would not open correctly for me...just showed up as a completely full page of weird symbols. Pretty bizarre!! Computers hate me! Anyway, for what ever reason, the link on your latest reply works fine!! Thanks a heap! I will try Hyper V. It is great to get information from someone who knows what is going on! Very cool! Thanks maxknux
    I appreciate it!
