Try setting 256 colors in the Monitors control panel. If that were the problem, though, you would get that specific error message. Try also increasing the preferred memory using File > Get Info. And finally, when it does run, do not click anything until the intro music stops. Doing so always freezes it for me.

I can not get this to run in Basilisk II, I get a message saying: Error can't find file. Anyone know how to fix this?
