Own it All or go bankrupt in Monopoly 1995!
Successfully tested on 64-bit Windows 7!
Created by Westwood Studios (best known for creating the Command & Conquer franchise) for the Windows 3.1, Monopoly 1995 features fully animated 3D cutscenes (with amazing graphics for back then), a catchy 1920's-style soundtrack (written by Frank Klepacki) and all the Monopoly gameplay you know and love! Play with other people at your computer or online (the game has online multiplayer, but who can say if anyone still plays it online after all these years?) or play against up to 5 selectable (and customizable in Notepad!) AI.
The game is fully customizable through the options menu, allowing you to do everything from select what rules to play by to changing the backdrop in cutscenes.
This game was, in my opinion, the best Monopoly video game ever made...none of the newer ones could compare to this masterpiece, so it was a shock to me that I couldn't find it anywhere, save for a very few physical copies on Amazon and eBay. However, after a series of very fortunate events, I have brought back this classic from being lost forever - hope you enjoy it! I know I did (and now do again
HOW TO INSTALL
1. Extract the entire .rar file
2. Locate within the extracted folder 'Westwood Monopoly.iso' to and mount it to a virtual drive (using Daemon Tools or a similar program) or burn it to a disk.
3. DO NOT run the setup on the disk - it's a 16-bit installer and will not run on a modern computer! Instead, use the 'setup_cd.exe' program included in the extracted folder while the disk is mounted - it's a 32-bit installer and will work on a modern computer.
4. Choose Custom Installation
5. Choose to add the Help Files
It should run smoothly, without requiring compatibility mode or running as administrator. Note that the game will seem to freeze for about a second each time a song changes - that's the game's programming, not a glitch or it freezing.
If you have any problems, let me know in the comments below. Thanks and hope you enjoy this blast from the past.
