I'm New to NOCTIS. In fact I'm so new I haven't played once. That is because when I try to run it, it refuses to load.

I keep getting the message:
"The NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction.
CS:0000 IP:0077 OP:f0 37 05 12 02 Choose 'close' to terminate the application."

Clicking ignore does nothing. I have XP SP3.

If anyone knows how to fix this, I would be thankful, because NOCTIS sounds interesting and I would like to try it.

Where have you extracted it to? The best place for the Noctis folder is either C:\ or C:\Program Files. I think this error occurs because the destination path is to long for the program to handle.
I have Vista (Which doesn't support full screen Dos games) so I can't check this.

That's the only advice I have.

I'm not sure about this anymore, but I think the solution you can find in http://0x44.com/postline/posts.php?t=1879 should work...

I just tried that and it didn't work, and neither did the config.nt error alternative, so I don't think the other alternative that doesn't match the problem will work.
Sorry it took so long before I tried the suggestion.
