The game is installed but won't run.
Issue: Once the game has installed it may not run due to problems converting the graphics to the format required by your video card. This is especially true if you have any third party agents in your Creatures 3 or Docking Station game.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Analysis: Video cards require graphics files to be one of two specific types, 555 or 565 format. Some third party image files can get corrupt the conversion process and cause errors when loading the game.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Resolution: If you have (or have ever had) any third party agents in your game, remove them. You will need to remove all the files from the images directory in Creatures 3 and Docking Station and then make fresh re-installs. If you know which image file is causing the problem (e.g. "Mandy_vendall.c16.tmp.c16") then you can just delete the file and you would not need to re-install.
