It's probably too old and looks much worse than I remembered. As a child I used to play Theme Park World, but on the PlayStation 1. The PC version of the very old game exists. I wanted to give that game a try.

On PCGamingWiki, I noticed: "SafeDisc retail DRM does not work on Windows Vista and later (see Availability for affected versions)."

I also noticed: "Download and install the SafeDisc Windows XP Fix for Microsoft Games.". That website link no longer exists, sadly.

So my question is this. Is there any modern methods to get past the SafeDisc DRM thingy? So that I can play such games, like Theme Park World, in modern times?

I'll probably move on quickly, but want to give it a try. No GOG version of the game exists.

      Dreadful Despair! This game lacks article on the wiki!
       
      As I am sure many of you know, back in ye olde 90's, Psygnosis was the shizzlick for futuristic Sci-fi games.
      That stylish owl was on so many covers that you just knew, oh yeah, this will be a quality product!
       
      Lander was developed and published by Psygnosis, released in 1999 to bad reviews by critics but praise from fans.
      It's a game where you play a Mercenary Lander pilot, looking to make the big break. Throughout the game as you earn the fat duckets, you upgrade your Lander, or buy a new Lander, purchase ammo, fuel and whatnot before embarking on the next mission. It is a very enjoyable and pretty game albeit slightly frustrating until you get the hang of the controls better.
       
      Now onto the fix.
       
      I recently got the urge to backup a few of my old games from disc to data format and after I did that, I proceeded to Install Lander, curious if I could get it to run on my system ( Windows 7, 32 bit ). Trying to start the game without anything done caused the landergldr to crash at the title screen ( 3DFX ). Disabled Visual themes, still crashed. Set the game to Windows 95, and now it ran ( or did it start running after I disabled aero.. ) but all the font in the game was minuscule, barely readable and some of it would get stuck on the screen. At this point I gave up on the gldr and experimented with lndrd3dr instead. I set it to WIndows 98 Compatibility and it started just fine, and ran fine as well.
       
      However, no matter what I tried to do with the sound, it would not play any sound whatsoever.
      So now, I googled it, and I found a very very easy solution over at Neoseeker Forums.
       
      To quote;
      " Then go into advanced and switch your Positional and Non-positional settings to both software, while increasing their volumes (located at the bottom right of the advanced menu) and adjust to your preferences. Quit the game. "
       
      And that fixed my sound problem.

      ( PS. Writing the Article of Lander by myself looked like a terrifying aspect. Hence why I posted it here! )
