(this is a cross-post from the release thread on summvm forums , the thread there seems pretty much dead atm)
basically the patch for DOS completes fine and without any errors but when playing it I get random freezes. The music will still play in the background (lapc-i) and the cursor continues to flash as usual... but the controls are stuck and you have to reset the pc.
I am using my p1/200mmx 128MB machine with a LAPC-I and a SB16 with DOS7.1
Normal dos MIs run fine , as all other games I am playing. There is no IRQ conflicts or hardware faults, the system has been running playing old DOS games for 3+ years now...
What I have tried so far is:
a. Using an XMS environment with HIMEM
b. Using an EMS environment with EMM386
c. Using a ramdisk to consume ALL XMS/EMS above 16MB (actually leaving ~15MB free and ~610kb conventional , thought I give it a shot)
d. Using either ctmouse or original ms-mouse drivers (tried it since the cursor was getting stuck, another crazy thought)
atm I am out of ideas...
here are the game files I got after patch ran without any errors:
anyone here faced this problem?
