Re: Making WineD3D on Windows for Win32

https://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=25939 Thanks! Doesn't seem to have any benefit though (at least in the games I tested). If a version of wine works out of the box it continues to work with the exe edited and ddraw.dll renamed. The more recent versions fail to start with the same " …

Re: Making WineD3D on Windows for Win32

Someone uploaded an archive of WineD3D builds up to 1.7.19 mostly including ddraw.dll. http://www.mediafire.com/download/51ua9rc36tr07ro/WineD3D+Patches.7z or rename wined3d/ddraw.dll to something else and hex edit the target game to import wined3d/ddraw under its new name. How do you do that? I …

Re: dgVoodoo 2 for DirectX 11

Thanks! A bug in the wrapper causing 8 bit paletted surfaces displayed blank (the menu screens gave me blank screen but it probably has to do with enabled 3D acceleration in the game), I quickfixed that. I forgot to mention that you have to run the game with the -windowgui command line switch if you …

Choppy sound with MOO 2

When playing Master of Orion 2 the sound gets pretty choppy at times, especially when opening windows or when videos are played. The strange thing is, the videos start out fine and get progressively worse during the second half of the movie almost to the point of garbleness . Is it possible to do …

Re: X-Men Children of the Atom

teleguy, could you or someone else explain in more detail how you got past the CD problem? I've extracted all files to C:\XMEN and tried to run the game in DOSBox 0.70 but got the same error as in your first post. Here's an updated Profile (created with D-Fend v2 beta) that should work with Dosbox …

Re: X-Men Children of the Atom

Sorry, I didn't get your pm , since I use a different email account now. If I recall correctly you have to install the game normally, then extract the archive files on the CD and copy everything to the X Men folder on the harddrive manually.

Re: X-Men Children of the Atom

I recently tried the game again and got it to run fairly well and with sound. ( I'll attach a profile for D-Fend/Dosbox 63 in case anybody wants to play the game but has problems with it.) However there's still something wrong with the display . All the colors seem to be inverted . Does anybody know …

X-Men Children of the Atom

Every time I run X Men from URL REMOVED, DO NOT POST LINKS TO ABANDONWARE using Dosbox 0.61 I get the message "Cannot find the X-Men Cd in the CDROM drive" . I already tried burning the extracted files on a CD Image and mounting it with Deamon Tools but that didn't help.

Re: Tie Fighter Joystick sensitivity

in Windows
Is it perhaps possible to use the arrow keys or the mouse together with the joystick to steer the fighter like in the Dos Version. I already searched for mouse/keyboard to joystick emulators but found nothing useful.

Re: A glide wrapper for DOS programs

Just to give a feedback : Version 1.21 fixed the missing textures (see below) I had in Tomb Raider with 1.20, however the game still is like slow motion. http://home.t-online.de/home/teleguy/TOMB3DFX001.bmp http://home.t-online.de/home/teleguy/TOMB3DFX004.bmp http://home.t-online.de/home/teleguy/ …

Re: Tomb Raider 1 Directors Cut

I managed to get the game running by adding "set path=C:\WINDOWS" to the launchpad but now the game behaves strange. The sound echos and the game constantly slows down then runs smoothly again . The counter always shows about 30 FPS . When I used VDMS without the music symbol it didn't behave that …
