yeah, probably, considering how well d3 runs and how well pyromania doesn't

FYI, D3 CAN run on Win 10, but only just most of the time. It has...quirks. Still plenty playable...but has quirks.

It wouldn't surprise me if one of those quirks would stand in the way of Pyromania running...but that's just an educated guess on my part.

Hm, well since you're using Windows 10 all bets are off. How did you get D3 working the first time around? Does compatibility mode help? I've heard many people can't get D3 running at all on Win10.

Maybe DxWnd? https://www.play-old-pc-games.com/compatibility-tools/using-dxwnd/

well, creating a shortcut worked, i got the intro with the lightning strike and the heli, then it crashed, giving me the same access violation error

Call stack:
------------------------------------------------------------------
    pyro15.exe 00570e6c()
    KERNEL32.DLL 73fb8484()
    ntdll.dll 771b2fea()
    ntdll.dll 771b2fba()

would it being in windows 10 be a potiental problem too? i mean, D3 runs just fine, but pyromania just crashes and stuff,
i'll try that launched thing and see if it works, though.

It's been a while since I did it on Windows, but I think you need to create a new shortcut to pyro15.exe and then edit it. Add the -launched command to that.
Alternatively maybe you can open a command prompt in the Descent 3 folder and do it there (just to see if it works).

I mean, if I can get D3 running in Windowed mode via WINE on Linux AND run Pyromania, I'm sure there is a way to get it working for you ;)

no matter what i do i get a crash to desktop/access violation.
also i'm not really getting the -launched thing, do i just type -launched into the command line in misc? or is there more that i should type in?

Hm, not sure really. I would personally try re-installing everything from scratch

* Uninstall everything
* Install D3 from GOG
* Install Pyromania

Be sure to try different rendering modes and audio settings in D3 setup.
Also, try to use pyro15.exe -launched instead of the batch file.
