it's christmas and I got finally some spare time to tinker around with my old 486 PC 😀 (see signature #1)
Got almost all my favorite old games running now, but Alien Carnage (aka Halloween Harry) resists all my attempts so far.
MEM says 578k free which should suffice for the most games.
When runnig the carnage.exe it simply skips back to dos screen without any result or error message.
I have searched, but couldn't find any cmd line paras to get it running (like '-vga' etc.).
I also tried setting the 486 to 40 MHz but that didn't work either - maybe I need some slowdown tool?
It would be great if anyone could give some advice 😉
Best wishes & a happy new year
