I can't start the game, at all.

I keep pressing "RUN" and it just keeps taking me through the opening movie, over and over again.

I see the title screen but only for less than a second before it shows me the openings again and again and again.

I'm using MagicEngine 1.1.3

Welcome to the forums Pattywick. First off you need to tell us more about your system & what you are using : I suspect a badly burned copy here because I can run the game perfectly with both the system card rom & the integrated magic system.

Also, can you run any other CD games at all? if not please post the contents of your PCE.INI thats in your Magic Engine folder.

My specs are:
