Re: The Orange Box. DRM vs Retro Gaming? How can I install it?

in Windows
I buy a lot of old games at the flea market and play them no problem (well not TOO many problems) but I am struggling with this one I have a physical Copy of The Orange Box (Hafe Life 2 Ep 2) and I can't install it. I do have a Steam Account, though I don't really have a use for it, and it will not …

Re: Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II - How to switch GPUs?

in Windows
This is partially false. The installer requires a modern version of Windows, but the actual game will run on Windows 95/98 just fine. Also it doesn't use dgVoodoo (I don't think any GOG games do). If it did it wouldn't list DirectX 9.0c as the minimum requirement, but DirectX 11. Well, in that case …

Re: Windows 7 file association help needed...

in Milliways
While testing FileTypesMan from NirSoft as a possible solution, I noticed that some of the associations are pointing to the wrong programs, but not using them. .AVI says it's associated with WMPlayer, but I have it associated with MPC-HC. .TXT says it's associated with Notpad, btu I have it …

Another strange thing; She was able to successfully set it to always use Word 2003 if she double-clicks a .DOC attachment in Thunderbird (email), but when double-clicking a file in Explorer, it still opens in Word 2007. As far as I know, Thunderbird has no special provisions for overriding the …

Re: Need to FREE up Conventional memory.

Nothing in that blog entry says anything about requiring those drivers, unless I am blind. Fine, to be more precise: CTMMSYS was at least needed on the SB16 and later cards for games that needed CT-VOICE.DRV. See for instance the AWE64 manual: https://www.manualsdir.com/manuals/70337/creative-awe64 …

Re: Need to FREE up Conventional memory.

How about, y'know, reading the manual? A Google search for "falcon 3.0" "config.sys" (with quotes) turns up the game's manual on Steam which suggests an autoexec.bat with just the mouse driver and a config.sys with device=c:\windows\himem.sys device=c:\windows\emm386.exe 2048 ram dos=high,umb …

Something is causing her copy of Windows to be obsessed with using Word 2007 to open documents. All the results I found just say to use "Open With..." to associate documents with the version you want. She even tried going through the app in the Control panel to set associations and despite setting …

Re: Auto Launch Windows 3.1 Games?

During one of my sessions system offered to update DOS 5.50. At first I pressed ok but then it asked to insert windows disk 7, I cancelled the process since I didn't had windows diskettes. I give up. There is no such thing as DOS 5.50 and I have no idea why one of your sessions would offer to …
