~ The following advice is not to be overlooked ~

If you are not at least "somewhat" technically literate, please recruit someone who is to help you with downloading, installation, and adjustments. Connect them with the Guides and files that are found in the downloads and are linked in each program's description here at Rotation.org.

Operating Systems

  • SundaySoftwareLogoAll 17 of the downloadable Bible programs from Sunday Software will run on Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10.  In some cases, you may need to make an adjustment to get the (program to run on your version of Windows. Consult the program's tech notes or those at sundaysoftware.com.
  • None of the programs will run on a Mac, or Linux, or Android.
  • Always install and run the software while logged in as the main admin user on your PC and not in a limited user account.
  • Some overly protective security programs installed on some PCs may thwart installation or throw you an error during a game when the program tries to write a score file. Temporarily disable them to see if that solves your problem.

Read the README File!

Each Download "Zip" file has a README file in it. View that file and the Game Guides for your software for the latest tech helps.

Some of the downloaded installation programs may have out of date "usage and licensing restrictions" that are no longer correct. Sunday Software has given our supporting members and their churches special permission to use the program within the congregation's teaching ministry and its member homes.

Many of the Programs Require the Installation of Quicktime 7.7.9 for Windows

Check the program's README file found in the download zip.

If your menus or animations aren't working, it probably means you need QT 7.7.9.

Quicktime is the utility many multimedia programs use to run their media and animations. It is made by Apple for Windows PC and it's free. While some programs traditionally came with a version of QT preinstalled, you'll want to make sure your Windows 7, 8 or 10 computer has the latest (and last) version of Quicktime for Windows. If you need version 7.7.9, get it at: https://support.apple.com/kb/DL837

Important Tip:  How to Make the Program Appear Larger on Your Screen

Several of Sunday Software's software programs have a "fixed" windows size of 800x600 -- which on larger resolution monitors (such as 1900x1200) can make the program appear "small" on the screen with a lot of unused space around it. You'll notice it when you see the installed program running on your screen the first time. Windows has a "scaling" feature that makes those programs fill more of your screen. 

The Windows 10 “scale and layout” option is found in the Windows 10 “Settings App” and not in the Windows Control Panel (for some dumb reason). To find the Settings app, right-click an empty area on your desktop and select Display Settings.

In Windows 7 and 8 the Display Setting isfound in the Windows Control Panel. 

Try 125% or 150% (depending on the resolution/size of your monitor.

Here's what the settings app menu looks like in Windows 10 when you right-click a blank area on the desktop. Click DISPLAY settings to adjust the scaling.

As well, some of Sunday Software's "3D style games" (like Galilee Flyer) may appear "stretched wide" on your wide aspect monitor IF your video chip's graphic properties are not capable of automatically adjusting the game's proportions. Depends on the quality/capability of your computer's graphics chip. Solution: Open the Graphic Properties options in Windows and select "fixed aspect" or "center display" to control the stretching.

Here's what the Graphic Properties control panel looks like on one person's computer:
