Getting old Windows games working.

Front Page Sports Baseball 98 on Windows 7

Postby rizon72 » 2011-10-03 @ 13:42

I really liked FPS Baseball 98 but haven't been able to run it since my old computer crashed. Is there a way to get it to run on Win 7.

Dunno about Windows 7 but for Vista 64bit this worked for Front Page Sports Baseball Pro '96

Tested 11-10-2007

Installer does not work, install on another computer and copy the files over.

May need to run the game as admin otherwise it will not be able to access it's files.

May need to run the game in win95 compatibility mode otherwise it will complain about not enough free space.

Tested on C2D Desktop with Geforce 8800 GTS Video card.


The game also works using Vmware Workstation 6 and Windows 98SE as a guest OS.

Try copying the "Baseball" folder on the CD to your hard drive and run Baseball.exe.

Ahhhh! I've gotten it to load, I can do things but the moment I have to play a game, it freezes.

You didn't copy it to your Program Files folder, did you?

Try this http://sierrahelp.com/Patches-Updates/N ... l#FPSBBP98

I don't have any compatibility fixes included with it. It mostly just replaces the original 16-bit installer with a new 32-bit installer that will run on Win7 x64.
