Skincrafter refers to the graphics interface and graphics skins that we use in the program. If you want to try to turn the skinning off on the older computer, go to the main game install the Strat-O-Matic football folder, find the file named SOMFBRULES.INI and open it. The ini file is a configuration file that has a bunch of settings. Scroll about halfway down and you should see a line that says SKIN=STRATFOOTBALL.SKF. Change this line to SKIN=NONE and then click File and Save. This should shut off the skin graphics. If your machine is having an issue with that, it should then be able to load the game.
