Re: Notoriously difficult-to-run DOS games?

In addition to what has been mentioned, Zone 66 and Beneath a Steel Sky come to mind. (Beneath a Steel Sky runs perfectly in ScummVM, of course.) Jazz Jackrabbit and Commander Keen seem to trip people up fairly frequently, but they worked well enough back in the day. Likewise, Lemmings 2 might be …

Re: Orion Burger and DOS32A.exe

Z:\>C:\Burger\Burger.exe gave the Laserlok warning, indicating that it saw the EXE correctly in that directory, but then Z:\>C:\Burger\DOS32A burger.exe -c threw up the 3001 error, not being able to open the EXE. That's the other thing you're not supposed to do. You need to type c: cd burger dos32a …

Re: How did scrolling work in Keen 4-6?
