Re: Good DOS first person shooter recommendations

in Milliways
RoyBatty, thanks for all the suggestions. Yes, please list the Windows 95/98 games too please, especially the ones that are well worth hunting down and playing). BTW, you've no doubt played System Shock (since it's apparently so well known amongst DOS gamers), but on the extremely remote chance that …

Re: Good DOS first person shooter recommendations

in Milliways
****ing browser just crashes, losing the post I'd nearly completed :sad: Anyway, thanks for so many great answers. There were some great FPSs in those Youtube videos (I love No One Lives Forever 2, Timesplitters: Future Perfect (my favourite cross-platform game of the last console generation) and …

What game is this, please?

in Milliways
I'm trying to remember the name of a PC game I played years ago (and I mean years ago, probably about 1998, give or take a year, and it might have been two or three years old then). I don't remember much about it, but it ran on a Windows 95 PC, so it could have been either DOS or Windows, and it was …

Good DOS first person shooter recommendations

in Milliways
First of all, sorry if this is in the wrong forum, or if this is a common question with a thread already devoted to it (I've looked, but couldn't find it), but I'm curious to know of any good DOS first person shooters that I haven't played. See, for weeks I've been waiting for Carmageddon to be re- …

Re: Please explain about virtual machines

Thanks for all of the answers. So a virtual machine is more or less useless for running old games, that explains why there's so little information on the subject available on Vogons. One other thing I was wondering about; I think DOSBox currently doesn't make use of multiple CPU cores (of the real, …

Please explain about virtual machines

I'm fairly well experienced with DOSBox (which is a brilliant program, and I find it indespensible for running older games on my laptop), but of course DOSBox by it's nature, requires a lot of resources since it's purely emulation based. I have heard that using a 'virtual machine' you can run older …

Re: How do you fix the timing glitch on Unreal Tournament '99?

in Windows
The same problem also occurs in Deus Ex, and other games that use the Unreal 1 engine, but it's easily fixed. It's caused by one or more problems (depending on the individual PC), such as a two or more core CPU, the power-saving settings on your PC (especially if it's a laptop), your PC being too …

Help - game won't run (Detective Chess) - maybe 64-bit problem?

in Windows
I am trying to install Detective Chess (downloaded from http://bindweed.com/det/det.htm ) on my Windows 7 PC, but when I run the setup.exe file I get the error message: "The version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running. Check your computer's system information to …

Re: wolf 3d and Blood

in DOS
>Blood works just dandy, but there's an addon called 'rage against the machine' but the installer won't work under DosBox. You have to have windows ONLY, and that's the only way she'll play. I have a Mac, and am using Boxer, so any help appreciated, as is any DosBox news Sorry, but all I can suggest …

Vesa problem, I think? I can't run Carmageddon in high res. mode

in DOS
So far I've got every PC game I like working on my laptop (Windows XP, Serice Pack 2, 512MB, 2GHz, 32MB ATI Radeon 7500) via normal installation, VDMSound or DOSBox, except one; Carmageddon (the original, not C2 or C3). Actually, I can run it fine, using only VDMSound, but then it's software 320x200 …

Re: old lappy

in Windows
It depends on what type of games you like, of course, but the following should all work fine: Duke Nukem 3D (awesome game), Shadow Warrior, Carmageddon, Doom 1 and 2, and all of those games have very good freeware mods and add-ons available from fan sites (use Google.com to find them). Also there's …

Re: Please help - DOSBox questions

I tried using loadfix before SGD, with no success, so I told SGD to call a batch file instead of X128.EXE, and the batch file called loadfix then X128, but still with no success. Are there any command line arguments for loadfix, that I can try? And does loadfix have to be on the same line, or the …

Re: Please help - DOSBox questions

>Program, just type it before running your program. OK, I'll try it now, thanks. >My guess is that close because you have asked (via D.O.G) to exit DOSBox automatically. No, I checked that originally, it's not that. Thanks for the suggestion, though.

Re: Please help - DOSBox questions

I've just discovered that DOSBox has been giving me an error message when it exits ( :blush: ), I didn't notice it because it's in a DOS Window behind the other DOS Window that comes up, and both close very quickly. Anyway, after [ALT GR] + [PRNT SCRN]-ing it, I find that the error message is: …
