In all seriousness, we'd need some more information before we can assist you in any reliable manner.

For example: Which operating system are you running?  Windows 98? 2000? XP? Vista? 7? Under a virtual machine in Linux or MacOS?

With a "white screen", do you mean that the whole screen turns white? Or a fully white square? Does it have window borders/titlebar?
Do you get any sound? Been able to run it before? Have you been able to run any other Niffgames before? Have you extracted the game somewhere or are you trying to run it from the .zip? Running it off a USB memory stick?

Also, last but not least, do you think "Help!" is a descriptive title? :)

Also, make sure you unpack the game, and not just run it from inside a zipfile.

Not helping because I don't feel like it either.

Feel free to create a new topic with a normal title with the same text and we'll help you.
