Those of you who might have read some of my earlier posts might know that since I first heard about D:U, I've been going back and finally beating all of the old Descents. I've already finished the first two and I dug up my old Descent 3 disc set that I've owned since who the heck knows when. I managed to get around the problem of the installer not firing by booting in safe mode and running it that way, but I haven't had any luck actually playing the game. I've only made it as far as the main menu. If I try doing a mission, the game minimizes itself to the task bar. If I click on the icon, my screen resolution will resize to the game's resolution but will stay on the desktop. I can hear game audio but all I see is my desktop.
I'm not sure this is the right place for a question like this, but can you guys give me any advice for getting Descent 3 working on Windows 10? Or is installing Windows XP on a virtual machine or second hard drive my only recourse? I feel like I'm so close to getting this game running, but I just can't get it to stop minimizing. I would be so disappointed if I wasn't able to finish off the original trilogy because of technical problems.
