I am having serious trouble running Cannon Fodder 1 and 2 under DOS. Every time I run it I get 'out of range' and a black screen.
My assumption is that the game tries to use a strange resolution that my monitor struggles with, so I tried 2 older 4:3 LCDs and a newer 16:10 LCD monitor as well as a LCD TV, unfortunately results are always the same. I do remember playing DOS version of Cannon Fodder back in the late 90's with no issues whatsoever, but that was on a CRT monitor. I have also tried three different graphics cards, namely a Voodoo3, S3 Virge DX and a S3 Savage, but the results are always the same. I am sure the game is not corrupt as this is the same copy I have used in the past.
Is this one of these games that requires an output device capable of running at 15 kHz?
