Might work, I don't know much of its effects yet, but it improved the loading speed so much, as if my screen blinked after starting a game, and I'm already in the game, so that's already a gain. Smile

There might be some logic like Kingdoms was developed to be played on 98 windows or idk, so it'd run better on it. ^^

[generally offtop]
i would say that is almost all about "administrator rights" on win98, there weren't high restriction for programs or users, almost anything could do everything, (pros easier for programmers, because almost no limits, but ... virus/troll etc software could damage also everything xD)
on win xp, there are some limits and differences
on vista even as administrator i wasn't able to do everything xD (strong separation between user/admin rights software etc)
on 7 they fix it, and little go back comparing to vista

YEP BETTER ALWAYS SET COMPATIBILTY MODE, almost every problem which i know come because of lack "compatiblity" old software with new OS (and second is graphic/sound problem but its other subject)

The game doesn't launch while using DXWnd. When opened directly from kingdoms.exe, it only allows a resolution no greater than 1200. Any ideas?

Did you take out Kingdoms.exe, change the Kingdoms.icd to Kingdoms.exe and follow Deekay's DXwnd tutorial? DXWnd works great; units are more vibrant and detailed with a big plus, no lag.

DXWnd works well.

I was referring to compatibility mode: Windows 98/Windows Me.

Yeah this is deprecated now, compatibility mode in W10 is terrible, for example, it'll lead you to more trouble: http://kingdoms.catsboard.com/t1517-fps-performance-test

So I don't recommend setting compatibility mode anymore, especially with DXWnd that injects things and etc. Might work with XP or W7 tho.
