ZOOM AD&D Ravenloft: Strahd's Possession

This product is included in the AD&D Masterpiece Collection

Stategic Simulations, Inc.

Games

Terror awaits... It waits in the form of Strahd, one of the most nefarious of all gothic characters ever imagined. Unveil and defeat this malevolent figure or you will never escape the terror of the AD&D Ravenloft game world.

Experience gothic horror role-playing at its very best in this visually stunning game. Immerse yourself in an eerily gorgeous gamescape, where subtle yet dramatically effective use of light enhances the macabre atmosphere. Interior and exterior visuals are simply breathtaking, animated sequences exquisitely smooth.

Presented in beautiful High Resolution 320x400 256-color VGA, Strahd's Possession delivers twice the quality of VGA without the cost of a Super-VGA card. Graphics stay razor-sharp and distrortion-free, even close-up and at the edges of the display.

This riveting tale unfolds in an exceptionally large 3-D gaming window. Explore bone-chilling dungeons. Challenge authentic Ravenloft game world creatures. Cast a multitude of mage and priest spells. Let auto-mapping keep track of your travels with maps that print - complete with any notations you made on them along the way. And, you'll love the frustration-free interface which includes inventory management for the entire party on one screen, and an intuitive point-and-click object manipulation system.

All this plus a story-driven character generator, a haunting musical score, digitized speech and sound effects will keep you on the edge of your seat for hours and hours.

Just be careful - things get pretty eerie when the sun sets!

DOS games do not work on Windows XP, of course, and we do not offer technical support for DOS games running on Windows XP. However, if you really want to run games like this on your fast new Windows XP machine you should try using DOSBox. The DOSBox OpenSource DOS emulator is an excellent piece of work which we can highly recommend. It isn't possible for us to guarantee that it will work well for you, however, especially on newer graphic-intensive DOS games. On older DOS games, like Civilization, for example, it runs well on any machine capable of running Windows XP.

To start with, you will need to download the Win32 Installer using this link: http://dosbox.sourceforge.net/download.php?main=1

The README file included with DOSBox will tell you what you need to know. If you find it a bit too technical, just click on The Newbie's Pictoral Guide to DOSBox on the following page: http://vogons.zetafleet.com/viewforum.php?f=39

We find that it is best to create a separate shortcut for each DOSBox game. That makes starting the game easier and also makes full screen mode easier to deal with.
