I love VDMSound, don't get me wrong. But there are some games out there that simply will not work due either to VDMSound incompatibility or XP problems. In order to rectify these situations I have constructed a DOS-box to run some old games complete with an AWE32 I got off of ebay for $5 (I can't beleive this cost $400 10 years ago!)
PIII 666 (I know it's too fast...Who thought we'd ever say that!)
256 MB PC-133
Epox Apollo Pro 133A Mobo
AWE32 (Latest drivers)
3dFX Voodoo 4 AGP
MS-DOS 6.22 w/ Qemm 8.03 (patched)
I am encountering a strange error when starting this game. It says:
"Using 2000K or EMS will add more music and speech.
set files=30 in you config.sys"
Hmmm. Odd considering I have 261,180,000+ EMS available, and FILES=40 in my config.sys....
So to make sure I wasn't being dumb, I created a new path in my configuration files to load a 'basic' setup with EMS and mouse driver only. No sound drivers, no QEMM memory managers or anything. I try to run TIE and I get the same error.
Any ideas on this one guys?
Thanks in advance..
