The game's documentation says that it will not run with any DOS version higher than 2.10.

To get the game to run under windows 95, you'll need to do a little hacking. With a hex editor, change the two bytes in the main exe file from "??" at offset AEA4 and AEA5 to "52"

It appears that the original game code was calling a very old DOS open file function that supported wildcards in the filename. It was trying to open the file "SPL52.DAT" using "SPL??.DAT" as a parameter.

Since there is only 1 SPLxx.DAT file used in the game, hard coding the ??'s to 52 works just fine!
