Games freezing in dosbox.

I have been playing 'Cadaver - the payoff' and in dosbox the game suffers from freezing at random times. One way to reproduce this is start the game, after the intro press 'c' when it ask you to select which game to play. Then when the game starts don't move or do anything but press 'g' on the …

Re: Primal Rage - Running without the CD

I would have thought GameCopyWorld would have something, but no. Just google 'primal rage nocd' and try your luck against viruses I guess? Tried that, only thing I could find was a txt file describing which bytes to change using an hex editor. Changed it but it didn't work. Also tried downloading …

Re: Jurassic-Park (OCEAN) no Sound Effects on AWE32 or compatible

in DOS
Finally found a fix to this. As the game needs EMS(expanded memory) which is not that common, i though it must be related to EMM386. I replaced emm386 with Jemm386 (Jemmex also works) and the game now plays all digital SFX with soundblaster selected. First game I have come across since using Dos in …

Re: Jurassic-Park (OCEAN) no Sound Effects on AWE32 or compatible

in DOS
Bump with exactly the same problem and no solution after searching. The game runs fine with music but no SFX with sound blaster selected. You start the game with a tazer gun and it should make a digital sfx when firing. The setup install.exe lets you select music and SFX separately, the only …

Re: Does Win98se need SB16 Drivers

Installed sbw9xup.exe dated [4 November 1998] SDR-95UPD-1-US (Revision 16) These appear to be the latest from creative but are older than the drivers in Win98. It fixes a full duplex issue recording and playing music. I tried it recording from line in when playing sound on a game and it is working …

Re: UMBPCI - game compatibilty

I can't find any search results on vogons about umbpci specifically causing games not to run, only posts saying it works. After running around 10 different games I've come across a game that doesn't work with umbpci .sys loaded. 'Cadaver - the payoff'. With umbpci loaded the game goes to the …

Re: Batman the movie

in DOS
The previous 'Batman the caped crusader' from 1989 says on the box it supported at least tandy sound (3 pc speaker). Batman the movie is definitely only pc speaker, Ocean cheaped out. I completed it around 1992 in cga mode. One thing that bugged me with the game, the joystick calibration routine is …

Re: General MIDI and AWE64 issues

Any disk cache software in DOS tends to cause more problems than they are worth when dos crashes. With ultra fast cf/sd/ssd hard drives I skip smartdrv because it can cause data loss/corruption and just wastes conventional or upper memory. I never had issues with disk cache software in DOS, BUFFERS …

Re: General MIDI and AWE64 issues

Hi, I'm having exactly the same issue as this op https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?t=11199 I'll be tracking here what I have: - FreeDOS 1.3 RC5 - SoundBlaster AWE64 Gold with 28MB upgrade - AWEUTIL 1.35 - CTCM 1.06 - Epox EP-D3VA It appears that for me, setting the PNP OS to "No" yields no …
