Like the questprobe game "Spider-man" this game has the same issue with running under windows.

The game can be hacked to run under windows by using a hex editor and changing these bytes in the file FANTFOUR.EXE

Offset b2ae: change 3F to 35
Offset b2af: change 3F to 33
Offset b2bc: change 3F to 50

See the trivia under spider-man for the explanation of these changes.
