Dominion Wars is fixed at 800x600 resolution... that cannot be configurable.

If you cannot move mouse after main menu, try quit the game and change desktop resolution to less than 1600x1200 and restart game.
Dominion Wars don't need compatibility mode in Win7, but XP users have to set it to Windows98/Me.

Hope you enjoy the game... :)

I posted an article about this on the sites front page, and mentioned that if anyone needs help, they should post here, so hopefully you can keep an eye on the thread.

Canon is what people argue exists on ships that don't exist.

Yes, he is the same komat you know... and he does put more effort in KA, indeed.

But I hope this thread is for DW only, you may create another topic for KA discussions.:)

I don't known if it would work on this but it has help with graphics from other older games

I use classic mode (no aero; Make your screen look like win 98) then right click on desktop and click on screen resolution(leave it open) then run the game.

This has helped on Starcraft, AOE2 with my win 7 64bit

Note: These games would run before I did this....it's just the graphics were messed up.

Give me some time to try it out with Dominion Wars

Well...I installed DW on my Win 7 and it crashes on launch. I tried to all the methods mentioned... but nothing.

I've spent nearly 3 hours... I give up.

Yes...

To Zach: Thanks but it's ok... I still have my Win ME... my 98SE is down right now but I'm going to fix it... so I can still play it with those computers

Hello,
I have upload the DW patch utility to mediafire:
http://www.mediafire.com/?96bg71sf9fj92gm
Important notes:
1. If you have dual/multi VGA cards, please disable other(s) and left only one usable in control panel.
2. If your screen resolution is larger than 1600x1200, please reduce resolution before you start the game.

Please reply in this thread if you need any help for this game. For other games, please create a new thread else.

Thanks.
