DosBox 0.70 refuses to run Shadow Warrior. It used to work wich 0.65, now i get a black screen after the graphics init. I' ve tried switching to normal core and static cycles and I' ve turned off sound, but i still get the black screen. Any ideas?
What a beauty, SW runs great under DoxBox 0.70 even in 800x600 SVGA. And after a little trouble with the IPX frame type i got the multiplayer working too. LO WANG RALLY, I'M COMING! Many thx to all contributers of DosBox, you just made one person alot happier
I installed the game went thru the setup like normal, then i go into DOSbox and get it goin and it says something about playback failed or something. Sorry for seeming so dense triin to learn some of this stuff still...
First i installed it ran the set up and everything then opend the dosbox changed the drive to C: then typed in SW like it says to then i will load up but while loading up it says playback failed possibly due to an invalid or conflicting IRQ.
The game works fine with Dosbox 0.70 even with SVGA 800x600 as mentioned above. It seems you have the incorrect settings for your sound card. Try changing the IRQ and DMA channels when you choose your sound card when running the setup file.
Manually choose your sound card. Don't accept the default settings. It has an option 'Choose Sound Card'. Select it to choose your sound card. I find the best one is sound blaster or 100% compatable...
What sound card are you using?
Tinker alittle and you will find the right setting to run the game.
Old DOS game were very sound card sensitive. You have to get the correct settings. You will know when you have as when you test the sound and music in the setup file you will hear something...such as 'you don't mess with Lo Wang'...or something equally as amusing.
