Re: Later Sierra games - DOS 6.22

Here are the specs: ASUS Spax motherboard (with onboard graphics) 32mb ram P100/133 At one point I had a Voodoo 3 in here, but it stopped me from booting to Win 3.11 so I took it out (story for another day, not a big deal I don't use Windows much on this PC). I put the Voodoo 3 back in, and now I …

Re: Later Sierra games - DOS 6.22

Well this is strange, beginning to see things pointing in a certain direction, installed GK1, ran great. For interest, re-ran the install, and instead of VGA selected VESA High Resolution (640x480) with 256 colors. Then the exact same EMM386 error. Setting this back to VGA and the game ran great …

Re: Later Sierra games - DOS 6.22

Thanks for the replies, I had found the link posted and tried STACKS=18, 256 (not 16, but will try that). There is also an option in the installer to make a bootable floppy which I've tried. This doesn't error, I just tries to start the game but I get a black screen. The PC is Pentium 100 (I think …

Later Sierra games - DOS 6.22

I recently found Phantasmagoria has an MT-32 sound option so I thought I'd give it a go on my DOS machine (along with The Beast Within). I can't get either of these running under dos, I'm getting an EMM386 error. I've tried a number of configs, NOEMS, RAM at 1, 2 and 4MB. I think there is a v1.1 …

Re: Beneath a Steel Sky

Thanks, you were right, it was the NOEMS that was the problem. Normally games that need it (ie frontier) will complain more explicitly, the error message here threw me off, didn't think it was memory related. On another note, does anyone know if you can get the MT-32 sound AND speech? I have other …

Re: Beneath a Steel Sky

Thanks for moving, I misunderstood the forum splits. Here's what I have in config.sys and autoexec.bat DEVICE=C:\WINDOWS\HIMEM.SYS DEVICE=C:\CTCM\CTCM.EXE DEVICE=C:\DOS\EMM386.EXE NOEMS rem frontier DEVICE=C:\DOS\EMM386.EXE RAM 1024 BUFFERS=15,0 REM ** FILES=30 DOS=HIGH,UMB LASTDRIVE=E FCBS=4,0 …

Beneath a Steel Sky

Hi All, trying to run Beneath a Steel sky on original hardware (DOS 6.22, Pentium 100, 32MB ram, MT-32). As this game is now freeware I got one of the many ISOs available, and installed successfully. When I try to first run the game I get an error: Fatal Error Previously installed software is …

Re: Monkey Island 1&2: Roland MT-32 + Sound Blaster support

in DOS
I'm having trouble getting this working. Running original hardware, MT-32, original floppy version (with the copy protection) with Interpreter Verson (sic) 5.2.02 (Nov 21 1991) I applied the patch, but still no sound effects. I recently played through with SB sounds, and sound effects were there, …
