Has ANYONE been able to get ANY of the Windows vers of the Mechwarrior 2 games to work in NT?
I have the original DOS ver of Mech 2 that I picked up waaaayyy back in 1995 the day before I bought my new 486 DX4/100 with 12mb of Vram and a 1mb Trident video card! Woohoo! (Unfortunately the trident couldn't run it 🙁 , so I borrowed a Cirrus Logic vid card from a friend and it worked!)
I also have the DOS/Windows ver of Mech 2 :Mercs....The DOS ver works in NT4/2K/XP under Connectix Virtual PC and the DOS ver works under Windows XP.
But what I find most frustrating is that due to Mech 2 Mercs using such an early ver of DX (IIRC, DX v3). That it should work fine under NT4/2K/XP.
So I was wondering if anyone has tried to get the Windows ver working in NT? I believe it's as simple as the Windows ver querying some DX call that doesn't exits anymore, if so then it should be possibile to redirect it...unfortunately this is not my area of expertise. (Someday I hope!)
