Windows 95 Games

Postby olddos25 » 2017-5-20 @ 03:13

Hi,I just recently got working Windows 95b in DOSBox SVN Daum with SB16 and Voodoo support.Can someone recommend me any good Windows 95 game to run in here? It doesn't necessarily must have Voodoo support, but better if it has support for it.

I played ColinMcRae Rally works fine with voodoo emulation.

Can you test Need for Speed 2 ?
It crashes when SB16 is Enabled in Dosbox.conf

You can also try CROC (demo still for download somewhere in the net)

You can also use nglide with win95 inside dosbox, but only with some builds.

I can only recommend not using Dosbox for any Windows 95 gaming.

Moved over to DOSBox Games/Apps (so the DOSBox forum moderators can have fun. ;) )

At least Lemmings and Oh No! More Lemmings works in there with MIDI and sound effects fully working(although for some reason the MIDI music crackles a bit).
I'm gonna try that game out right now (oddly enough I also have the PSX version of that game).

All right, finished my testing. The Voodoo version works until the start of the race and then it crashes back to Windows 95. However, the unaccelerated version will actually crash DOSBox entirely at the same point!

Official DOSBox does not support Win9x. Some unofficial builds may do better, but these forums are for official DOSBox. Don't look for much help here with those builds. Also note that Daum is broken. leileilol is right, you are better served using a VM, not DOSBox.

Agreed. You will eventually get page faults that corrupt the install and will require a complete re-install of Windows9x.
I've tried this all before. DOSBox was impressive as to what it could do with Windows 9x, but it is in no way a reliable solution or recommended.

PCem or 86Box does emulate a pc for win95 much better then dosbox, but much slower.

In 86box nfs2se runs with voodoo at a playable framerate, slow but playable.

I use win95 in dosbox for testing what happens , some games run, some not.
Tested so far:
RUN: Colin McRay Rally, Croc (demo)
Run Not: Nfs2se, Driver (random crashes).

It is worth a try, but do not expect a stable system.
