    Monopoly Tycoon problem

    What you came across seems like a bug in version 1.4. Version 1.3 was the last official patch for the game. I have the exact same issue here! There could be many causes of the problem. The scenario seems completely broken with the building rights. A possible solution could be to get the specific tutorial level scenario file from version 1.3 and replace the 1.4 version, if the 1.4 patch does create a new one even in the first place. I have tried in software mode and still won't work. It completely locks up the game which is really surprising. The Windows Media Source Filter was dropped instantly when Windows Vista started development (even when it was still longhorn). Very few games utilize it at all, Ford Racing 2 and Test Drive 6 are the only games besides Monopoly that have been discovered to use it extensively. I am really glad that so many people could utilize the fix I made for the game's music! If you want to make the music not skip around (stutter) remove the qasf.dll in C:\Windows\SysWow64\ and it will fix the stuttering even on Windows XP (possibly even Windows 2000). Please note that the qasf.dll is required for plenty of legacy games to render intro movies. NOTE: There is an automatic installer (.bat file) that automates the codec installation of the WMA Source Filter, you don't have to do it manually.

    DivX 3.11 Audio Codec



    This audio codec provides a way for older applications and games that require the Windows Media Source Filter to bypass all ASF codecs. DivX ;-) was not made by the corporation DivX, but instead it was later adopted by the company and trademarked. Known games that require this audio codec to play audio: - Monopoly Tycoon - Test Drive 6
