in Windows
Remove DINPUT.DLL from the game directory, Also you only need to copy the DirectX .dll that the executable references.

Difference between 98 & 98SE. You can download all of the updates from Microsoft for Windows 98 and it will be 98SE...except it will be missing one little feature ICS (Internet Connection Sharing). This came with 98SE. Everything else could be downloaded.

This forum's description Discussion not directly related to getting old games running on new systems by either emulation or by needing instructions. IMO, is long-winded and unecessary. The description just below it (Announcements, advice, random banter, et cetera.) is much better. :) How about a …

Re: VDMSound forum to OGoNS?

in Milliways
Ultimately it's Vlad's decision of course. ;) I certainly think we would benefit by having the VDMSound forum here. Mabye a forum dedicated just to VDMSOUND.
