I'm having some trouble getting a specific game to work in DOS mode (command prompt only) in Win 98, but it works when run from Windows directly. However it takes a big performance hit from doing this. (The game runs intermittently from DOS, I haven't figured out why, but the frame rate is significantly better). Also I have GL Quake which only will run inside the Windows environment.
How can I reduce the overhead caused by Windows when running these games?
It's a DX4-100 system, 80 MB of RAM, 256 L2 cache, 50 MHz FSB, 4 MB Voodoo1, S3 graphics.
