In short, has someone managed to get Obsidian (1996) work in Windows7? In my case the game kinda launches but nothing happens and it is left with no response to Task Manager. I guess this implies a glitch with video. Found this one (link to GOG I cannot post yet due forum restrictions) but I've got the feeling there's just some minor settings issue that would fix the thing. If someone has played the game recently I'd be glad to get a hint -- or then it might just be the high time to dig up the old win95 and install it to the old laptop.

Go it working -- thanks!

For anyone struggling with the same thing in the future: In addition I had to remove the previous version(s) of Quicktime and reinstall the one that comes with the game.

That whole Quicktime thing is always a pain. Sometimes removing a version requires going to multiple directories to manually delete files and whatnot. <ugh>
