Re: Your favorite retro game reviews?

in Milliways
I like reviews to be subdued and chill with a little twist of David Lynch weirdness. This one is pretty close. The rabbit made me almost lose it @ 4:35. https://youtu.be/UR3fBz23lag Thank for the pointer - that was epic. The rabbit was funny, but it was looking up how to pronounce Cicada that …

Re: Wizards and Warriors

Thanks for the info!! Meanwhile I opened a separate thread for Wizards and Warriors, and moved the related posts here. So Wizards & Warriors finally works perfectly for me with dgVoodoo in Windows 7 64. It seems simple now, but getting there was painful. It turns out this game hates "Fast video …

Re: dgVoodoo 2 for DirectX 11

So Wizards & Warriors finally works perfectly for me with dgVoodoo in Windows 7 64. It seems simple now, but getting there was painful. It turns out this game hates "Fast video memory access" and the GUI interface not responding when you turn off "Fast video memory access" resolves itself when you …

Re: dgVoodoo 2 for DirectX 11

So I fixed the character models disappearing by unchecking "Fast video memory access" in the DirectX tab, but now that creates a new problem. Once you leave the city gates you can't get back in! You literally can't click on the entrance gates of the city in the 3D game world to get back into the …

Re: dgVoodoo 2 for DirectX 11

Thanks for trying it out. So I I tried out the latest dgVoodooWIP29.zip and the same results. Everything looks good in the game until you get out into the 3D world and you will notice your character model in the top left disappears or in some cases gets corrupted textures, etc. Software mode seems …

Re: dgVoodoo 2 for DirectX 11

Could you plz post a screenshot about the texture corruption? This game may worth a new thread, I might able to do with it something, later. Or, I should play a little more with it than just a quick try and that should be enough (but I was always killed shortly after entering the forest :D). After …

Re: dgVoodoo 2 for DirectX 11

I was just trying to play Wizards and Warriors for the first time on this rig. Looks like the only way to play it with a recent nvidia card (with recent drivers), even having tried modified exes, is with dgVoodoo 2 which fortunately works flawlessly from my limited testing. When you say flawlessly, …

Re: You Are Empty black screen

in Windows
Hi liqmad, yes tried with patches (European version have 1.2 included, only 1.3 missing). I also tried dgVoodoo but game is DirectX 9 so it is not supported. Do not know DXGL but I will check it out, it seems to be DDraw so not sure but worth a try. Since VMWare is not working, do you have any VM …

Re: You Are Empty black screen

in Windows
Have you tried the patches yet? Never played this game so have no idea if these will help you. Tried downloading some of them and most have virus warnings and look to be Russian patches. http://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/You_Are_Empty Also, if you search, there is talk about a 1.3 unofficial patch, BUT …

Re: Dark Earth - DDERR_OUTOFMEMORY error

in Windows
DXGL . Never knew about this tool. Thanks. Using the ddraw.dll from the MS folder included with dgVoodoo v2.53 and this tool for aspect correction I actually got my old copy of Blood Omen Legacy of Kain working properly including the FMVs in Windows 7 64 in conjunction with the BO:LoK v2.0 …

Re: Your Win 3.1 install is not complete unless...

in Milliways
This could probably be revived in gadget/widget form on modern OSes (or maybe augmented reality on mobile devices) My obligatory annoyance on Win3.1 was some port of Neko XD Can you imagine? Augmented reality external environment object recognition that Tiny Elvis responds to. I think it would …

Your Win 3.1 install is not complete unless...

in Milliways
...you have Tiny Elvis installed. Yes, someone still has a download for it. Now this brings back laughs and memories from the early 90s on my 486. Does not work well in Win95 because it shrinks to the taskbar rather than an animated icon on the desktop. Windows 3.1 for best effect. https://www. …

Re: Mechwarrior 2 scratched disc

in DOS
I'll look into it but don't think resurfacing will work here. You can definitely see through the disc if you hold it up to the light so I think it's screwed. Ouch! Yeah. Nevermind then if it has a hole. I had a Future Cop LAPD PC game disc like that on the outer edges and it was toast. Oh well. You …
