For eons, the planet Natrolis was controlled by the magic of the reptilian Sorin race. But when a fleet of tech-powered humans arrives to colonize the surface, they awaken the unimaginable - the Dreil, a hyper-evolved insectoid warrior race hibernating deep within the planet's core. Now, all three forces collide in a mortal struggle for domination.

It's cool that somebody besides me remembers this game, and I really appreciate that you were willing to upload a copy to ModDB, though I am a bit puzzled that you only uploaded the demo version rather than the full version (there's one on myabandonware.com).
Also, I realise that you probably can't help me, but I wanted to mess around a bit with the map editor, and the first time I launched it it worked fine, though I quit without saving because I didn't feel like it at the time.
Every time since that I have attempted to run the map editor, it has either silently crashed to desktop on launch, or if I attempt to start it from the start menu (Win10) has generated a blank error message. No code, no title, no text, just a blank error box. If you have any idea what the problem might be, please tell me?

Hello! Thank you for writing your message. Well I know this game since my childhood. I started to play on it since it was published.
As you probably know, some old games are now available to buy on zoom-platform.com . I "know" someone for almost a year (?), who is responsible for collecting old games. He has good relationship with publishers such as Strategy First or other (defunct) developers/publishers. They made a program that allows the users to run any old games on moder OS like windows 10 or 11 in full/widescreens with out any issues!
I hope that Dark Planet: Battle for Natrolis will be added soon!
Regarding the map editor issue you have, I don't know what you should suppose to do. If I were you, I would try to launch the game with a free software called DxWND! This will work for old windows games.
Hm. Partial success. DxWND allows me to run Natrolis in windowed mode, but the window is so small that I have difficulty telling what's going on, and the editor still won't launch. And if the program has a setting to change the size of the window, I don't see it.
edit: ah, never mind the window size thing, I found the option. Now it's just the editor that's a problem.
Unfortunately there is no other way to make the game run well on modern os with higher resolution, only DxWnd worked for me. I talked to someone, who is an owned of a company, they used to re-release old games and fix it with their sophisticated software to make old games run on modern os in full/widescreen with out any issues, but before re-releasing it, we need to know who own the game copyrights.
Ah, okay then, I'll try that program. I'll get back to you. Thanks.
