Re: Reelmagic/Realmagic MPEG games

in DOS
Ah, I see. It is just the topic for discussing mostly games, you know. Yes, ReelMagic CD is a kind of the original ReelMagic - it should be quite rare and expensive 😀 Will it come with full box, drivers, demo disks etc. or just the cards?

Re: Reelmagic/Realmagic MPEG games

in DOS
If Conspiracy exists for this platform, could Dune exist too ? Well, that remains a possibility, but to tell the truth, I doubt that - no proof had been surfaced so far, and there are no mentions of "Dune" in catalogs :( Excellent work Uka! I'm looking forward to trying Conspiracy on my 386 :) You …

Re: DOSBox ReelMagic Fork

Do we know anything more about realmagic Conspiracy's release? Was it released on only one continent? Did it have an official box? Did it ever make it on store shelves etc. Well, that's a question for Hammer, but I think that - yes, "Conspiracy" (in difference from "Entity") was released officially …

Re: DOSBox ReelMagic Fork

Good news: thanks to Hammer , the 11th REALmagic game has been recovered - "Conspiracy" (better known as "KGB" by its 1992 floppy version) by Cryo Interactive! I have uploaded it to Archive.org. Bad news: it does not work in DOSBox ReelMagic Fork for now. This release, in difference from "Entity", …

Re: Reelmagic/Realmagic MPEG games

in DOS
No, it does not... It seems that every (or almost every) REELmagic game requires the DOSBox fork to be tuned a bit for that specific game. It does work on the real hardware though!

Re: Reelmagic/Realmagic MPEG games

in DOS
Well, some news is that "Return to Cyber City" is said to definitely exist! So I move it from Part II to Part I of the list: https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?p=962231#p962231 Sadly no more games have been found yet. I only keep finding multimedia projects, but they are not games and not RM- …

Re: DOSBox ReelMagic Fork

@uka: Windows 3.11 should work fine in DOSBox 0.73. Only problem (that persists in SVN as well) is that share is not working. If a game needs, you can fake it though with fakeshare (in my Wibdows 3.1x guide). Well, I have tried installing Windows 3.11 in the current version of DOSBox ReelMagic Fork …

Re: DOSBox ReelMagic Fork

So is it likely that with that patched EXE and running in the DOSBox ReelMagic emulator this is the most this game has actually ran? When I get more time I would love to dig more into this and actually get it to the point where it can stably run on the real HW too :-) Yes, sure - you are indeed the …

Re: DOSBox ReelMagic Fork

And the game's behaviour is the same on the real hardware - as we already mentioned it here before, the CD image of this game is not original and could be dubious, or this edition could be full of original bugs with the MPEG part not being tested enough (or both). OK, here is the true story! It …

Re: DOSBox ReelMagic Fork

Have you tried LOADFIX? It can cure many forms of seemingly inexplicable program misbehavior. :) You mean, for fixing that crash with "Entity"? Sadly no - LOADFIX does not help there. And the game's behaviour is the same on the real hardware - as we already mentioned it here before, the CD image of …

Re: DOSBox ReelMagic Fork

[*] Cleans up major video artifacts in Man Enough. Awesome :) Hopefully I didn't break anything :-) I have briefly re-checked all the 10 games - everything seems to be fine! That is, just those good old known bugs. Like "Space Ace" not working, video not progressing in "The Horde" etc. I think one …

Uka wrote on 2022-04-09, 05:17: There is only one minor issue: after quitting the game in the middle with F10, DOSBox crashes instead of leading us back to DOS. It works fine after the game is completed though. I attach the logs. This bug is now fixed, by the way 😀

Re: DOSBox ReelMagic Fork

Crime Patrol is now playable. Crime Patrol 2 - Drug Wars is now playable. Oh, great!!! So, for now only one DOS game (out of 10 available for the moment) is not yet supported, "Space Ace". I have played and completed "Crime Patrol" - all the videos are fine, no artifacts at all! I had one minor …

Re: DOSBox ReelMagic Fork

This will likely turn into a very large effort and right now I think it's better to focus on getting reasonable emulator support and compatibility across most games. Of course, you are right! It is indeed not a priority as that is not the emulator's fault. I'm not sure this is even related to the …

Re: DOSBox ReelMagic Fork

Flash Traffic is now playable. That was fast :) Awesome!!! Current Tested Game Compatibility: Entity You do not list video messages crashing under "Known Issues"? [*] Flash Traffic I'm sure there is something as I have only briefly tested the intro and installer. And with this game, I was able to …
