    Older Star Wars games


    I'm installing some older Star Wars games to find out if I can still play them on 10, but I'm having a problem w/a few & hope someone can help me w/these.

    1. Battle For Naboo. When I try to install, I get a message stating it's a 16Bit installer & will not run on a 64Bit machine.

    2. Episode I: Racer. When I start the game, all looks fine from the beginning; images look right, sound is good, no stuttering/skipping in video or sound. But once I get past all the cutscenes & menu choices & the race is to begin, the screen is awash in white. It's as though I'm looking at a snowbank, but the podracer & a few other elements are just off-colored outlines & there is no longer any sound.

    3. LEGO Star Wars. When I start the game, I get these errors: "The code execution cannot proceed because d3dx9_35.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem." & "The code execution cannot proceed because XINPUT1_3.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem."
    When I try the same method that worked on 7 (DL d3dx9_35.dll & XINPUT1_3.dll & place both in the LEGO Star Wars folder) I then get this error: "The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b). Click OK to close the application."

    4. Rogue Squadron 3D. When I start the game, a message pops-up for a second: "You'll need a new app to open this ms-gamingoverlay", then just a black screen. No images, no sound, I do see a cursor, but that is it! And the only way I can exit, is to use CTRL-ALT-DEL to bring-up the Task Manager, CTRL-SHIFT-ESC will not work.

    5. Sabacc. When I start the game, I just get an error message: "This app can't run on your PC. To find a version for your PC, check w/the software publisher".

    6. Shadows Of The Empire. When I try to install, I get a message stating it's a 16Bit installer & will not run on a 64Bit machine.

    Does anyone have any ideas for any of these games?

    :)

    Star Wars Commander Update

    Thank you
    M16Z0
    for your contribution,

    When it states that the item is not available I suggest to contact the developer of the game Star Wars Commander.

    It might that the game was taken from the store by the developers.

    Kindest Regards,

    Thanks for keeping us in the loop, Chris. You may make your older game or program compatible with the current version of Windows that your device is running, and check if it works. To proceed, click this
