Today I grabbed Zool2 and started playing,

So after 3 minutes of getting slaughtered by cuddly creatures I dove into a trainer archive and found a bunch of trainers. However: 'none of them seem to work' in dosbox. Can anyone shed a light on this ?

Thanks

And to know I could have thought that up myself, but didnt 😁 (thanks)

But I still want to know why these trainers dont work, and if this is something dosbox related. Might affect other games too.

Right I think I found it: 😁

So, there is thing called a scene-release, which is the first 100% cracked release of a game.
Most trainers are bound to this release unless otherwise stated. All scene groups follow these rules.
Its a bit like the 'pirate code' from that pirates of the Caribbean movie.
The Code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules.Welcome aboard the Black Pearl, Miss Turner.

So if you have a different version, there is a big chance most trainers WONT work.
And I can say for a 100% that my game is NOT a scene release. 😒

I think I solved this, but I am not really sure, any thoughts ?

I have the CD-ROM version of this game but can't get it to run in DOSBox. The screen just goes black when I run ZOOL2.EXE. Does anyone know if the game is compatible?

That worked, thank you.
