Hey fellas
Just installed the game: Der Korsar/The Corsair.
I had to install it in the compatability mode for windows 95 and it loads fine, but it doesn't load any mission, giving me the error:

10000001 (e:\prm\missions\mis01\blu\mis01b lu.prm)
Any help is much appreciated as to solving this problem.

can you point us to a game site for the game, or a description?

haven't heard of the game, sounds like a European title game.

Indeed, it's a german game. No matter, I uninstalled it on that computer, took out my old box, deleted all the files on it (format didn't work) then went into DOS, wiped the HD clean, installed windows 98, got another half-hour of trouble because I couldn't locate my ID-KEY, found it in a dusty old cupboard, installed Win98, installed "Der Korsar". Error, needs 265 colors, I only had 16. *** never seen so low. OK need a graphix ware. Found it too in the same supboard, where all my software resides. Installed it. Now the game works perfectly.

Load of work for one of the best games I have ever played.

Why didn't you just try to run it on XP mode ? Might've worked ..

95 is way too low I think.

I ran it on a 98 in the end mate. And what's XP mode? It didn't work, running it from an XP computer in compatability mode... A lot of people on the net tried, but the game runs only on Win98/95... That's what I did in the end, taking out my old box and I'm having fun on it no matter what :D
