Re: Lion King

in Windows
Do you have the opportunity to test if the games work in Windows XP+ (I doubt they do)?

Re: Safely restoring DirectMusic functionality to Win7?

in Windows
I refuse to turn to google for this one because I'm paranoid about modifying system files. Especially on a OS that get's mad at you when you attempt to do so. Well you can keep that refusal up and never get the game running or you can try the saner approach of letting us go through the worries of …

Re: Outlaws (LucasArts) under Vista

in Windows
I think the most important thing would be to add 64-bit patch installers. The patches are all 16-bit applications, so even with your installer you have to use a VM to install the patches if you want 3dfx, direct3d support or the new missions included.

Re: Outlaws (LucasArts) under Vista

in Windows
Check nGlide's settings. It allows you to force resolutions higher than 640x480. If anyone's trying to run this in Windows 8: Use DXGL as a wrapper for the menus (annoying games uses DirectDraw for menus regardless of what the game render is). Probably preferable to Windows 7 users too. Killing …

Re: Afraid to run old Windows Games on Window 7?

in Windows
Windows protects its system files from changes and has since Windows ME. You're unlikely to break the system by installing/uninstalling older applications. It is not impossible for it to happen nor is it impossible for your harddisk to suddenly fail one day. Neither should be amongst your worries: …

Re: Wipeout 2097 (XL) with Windows 98

in Windows
Well, a messy solution, but something to try if you get no other suggestions: install MSI Afterburner and use MSI OSD server to limit framerate. You'll probably need KernelEx to get past the installation. I doubt this will work at all. Better solution: try to get a XP computer (or Win7, that's what …

Re: Windows 7 GPU scaling?

in Windows
Two separate things that I'm not sure have been mentioned here. 1: Switch to the resolution your game is running at before making any changes. Scaling options WILL be greyed out if you're running in your display's native resolution and not the game's. Edit: After you have set it, that scaling mode …

Re: Pc frogger game 1997 version

in Windows
That CDDA patch linked to works for me in Windows 7 with a later European re-release of Frogger. So I assume the guy who wrote the patch knows what he's talking about. If you like the game making a backup of that patch is probably a good idea, things like that tend to disappear.

Re: Win9x games that don't work on XP

in Windows
MCI works, you just need XP compatibility mode. Experimented a bit today, couldn't figure out how to get rid of the delay on Metal Fatigue, but I tried Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds, and it had no such problem. So it probably has nothing to do with winmm.dll (or _inmm.dll) and is related to some …

Re: Win9x games that don't work on XP

in Windows
Joey_sw: _inmm.dll doesn't require Winamp and I don't think it has a noticeable delay either. It's a long time since I played Metal Fatigue with it and I don't remember CD audio timing being important in that game? if you have other supported alternative, it may use that instead. however in my …

Re: Win9x games that don't work on XP

in Windows
Making a list like this is hopeless, who's going to submit entries? To check if it runs on XP you need to actually try it on XP across different hardware. Maybe it just doesn't like your graphic card (very likely) or some other hardware (less likely). Joey_sw: _inmm.dll doesn't require Winamp and I …

Re: Baldurs gate enchanced edition

in Windows
I would wait until they fix some bugs. I thought this was supposed to be essential a re-release of Baldur's Gate with bugs fixed so I don't know why it seemingly has more bugs.

Re: Heretic 2 crashes

in Windows
I've had that problem for as long as I remember, I think I always solved it by just opening the tutorial first. If you're going to play it it is VERY important that you keep save backups.

Re: Outlaws (LucasArts) under Vista

in Windows
He does for the patches. Hazekel: just open it with a text editor and find this line: "Source Path"="F:" change into whatever your CD drive is, then rename the file to a.reg and double click it. Install Outlaws to the default location (C:\Program Files\LucasArts\Outlaws)

Re: Outlaws (LucasArts) under Vista

in Windows
The game does have seperate patches for both Direct3D and Glide support: http://www.olmaps.com/files.html Not sure if it it possible to have both renderers available at the same time or the patching order. DirectDraw and Direct3D both work perfectly out of the box here so it's probably a nvidia …

Re: Re-Volt no-cd sound issues

in Windows
Try checking Windows 7's audio mixer, it has per application volume levels and sometimes has some random errors. Re-Volt must be running, so hope it supports alt-tab... IIRC Re-Volt 1.0 doesn't work in Windows 7 so that wouldn't have helped you any regardless. Also you shouldn't expect to not get CD …
