Crystal Caves/Secret Agent
Has anyone else had problems running these games on Pentium machines? When the game starts I get a single vertical line on the left side of the machine and Windows bombs out. It works fine on a 486 running Windows95, but not on a Pentium. Thanks!

I've never had any problem, aside from the same little glitches that I also get on my 386. Don't know about the line, though. Sounds out of my league.

You can try the alternate video setting on the main menu of the game (if you can see it).

However, if that doesn't work, the only solution would have to come from your video card manufacturer. That switch in the menu is the only way to change video behaviour from the game. The problem is that a lot of video cards these days don't properly do the old EGA video modes.
