Been in the secret passage & down the grave and up to 37 gems now. This is the part of dizzy games I dont like trying to
find the remaining ones in this case gems as I never seem to get them all.

Should I at this stage be able to complete the game or are they some more puzzles to solve although dont seem it ?

I have 3 main items left ive not used and 3 others (which may or may not be for points only)

Also I dunno if I should beable to kill the spiders & bats or any of the under water sprites (for points).

Apart from the problems I am having in game trying to solve the puzzles, I have encountered a couple of installation problems as well, dont know if its my decrepit old machine, it is 8 years old.

I have a few DizzAge games installed and still uncompleted. When i used WinZip to unzip and install Railroad, if I let it clear up the temporary files, then when i try to start Railroad, i get WinterWorld instead!
Have tricked Winzip, otherwise I would lose not only the game, but also my saves when I resart the PC. :v2_dizzy_frown:

Also, this is the first game i have tried where it doesnt appear to allow me to use my Saitek rumbling Joypad. I have gone into config to make sure its allowed but whether I enable or disable it in the Dizzy config makes no difference :v2_dizzy_confused2:

So i am having to use the keyboard, and simulate my own rumbles when I fall a great distance (AGAIN) :D

I have never had any problems with any other DizzyAge game. Is it a new version of DizzyAge that doesnt like Windows 98 ?
Anyone got any ideas please ?

ermmm RRD uses v2.1 of DizzyAGE, which had a bug in it that meant joysticks weren't supported. v2.1.1 fixed this, but i haven't updated RRD yet... :v2_dizzy_blush:

regarding it starting WWD instead of RRD, i have no idea. Alex would need to comment on that.

i really must get around to updating the RRD .exe file to v2.1.1....
