So no one's going to help me? There's got to be one person on this list that 
could shed some light on this matter. Someone to show me where to download the 
files I need, or whatever. Maybe someone knows how to contact Robert Betz, or 
maybe someone knows why the game is acting like this.

Hi Ryan,

First, I don't know if you are aware of this but Microsoft completely
dropped support for Visual Basic 6 and earlier in Windows 7. As a
result if you want to play the games like Robert's games, which were
written in Visual Basic 6, you have to install the full Visual Basic 6
runtime. You also need the Visual Basic 6 components for DirectX 8
which also do not ship with DirectX 9 and do not ship with the Visual
Basic runtime. The easiest way to get these components installed is to
install Jim Kitchen's Winkit setup program that givews you most of the
Windows 9x and XP backward compatibility libraries for Visual Basic.
