The game runs after installing the patch to 1.5 or higher still slow!
Make a shortcut and start the game with this line: "gametycoon.exe –D low“. Everything is running in 16-Bit-Mode instead of the 32-Bit-Mode.

I get a message at the start that a file named "d3d9.dll" is missing. But without installing the patch on version 1.5 it runs well!
Die latest versions from 1.5 needed DirectX9.0c. You can download it on the website of Microsoft.
