Topic Subject:Pharaoh Cleopatra (gog) crashes after 10-15mins
posted 10-10-18 09:47 ET (US)
The title is pretty self explanatory. I ran it the first time with widescreen patch and window mode files, then tried reinstalling it, and running just the window mode patch. I am running the game as admin with win7 compatiblity and 16 bit colors.
Quick edit: Game runs fine without any additives.
Any help is greatly appreciated. Kind regards.

The widescreen patch doesn't like non-standard paths of the 'galaxy installer'. It expects driveletter:\Impressions Games\Pharaoh as standard with a little wiggle room; but never under "Program folders".
See if you can get Pharaoh via Browser download option and install it in the "proper" place without the galaxy installer. Remember: You are replacing the EXE so any tweaks gog did to the exe header are gone. Also remember the other files that need to be backedup/replaced of the widescreen patch.
I use widescreen with the following; Compatibility=Win98 no other checkboxes enabled(32bit color)
