    It won't run on your Ozone. Windows Mobile is different than Windows. You would have to find a mobile version.

    You could get a job with them and code the mobile version yourself.

    I tried to install many different mobile phone games on my Ozone, and noticed that many of them don't work when they come with .exe files (many with .cab files also don't work), even the description of the application says that it's compatible with WM. Is there a sure way to know if the app will be compatible? I know that Ozone operating system is sometimes called "pocket PC" (some older games for it work well), or WM 6.1 Standard for Pocket PC or Smartphone (some games work in both versions). However, some games with these descriptions don't work, what gives?

    You might try a post with ballistics in the title in the software forum. You never know what people here have found.

    the ozone is not a ppc or pocketpc or windows mobile pro...look for smartphone apps up to winmo 6.1 or below!
