Re: Need help with Batman games in DOSBox

Now if I can just get the correct cycle settings for Batman Returns and Batman Forever DOS... There's no real way of knowing. When the game was originally released, people with slower computers just had to play the game more slowly than people with faster computers. You pretty much just have to …

Re: Alien Trilogy - what's yer take?

in Milliways
Wonder why GOG hasn't picked it up yet? Normally I'd say that a game based on a licensed property almost certainly can't be brought back without someone fighting through deep layers of contractual red tape. But then, we did manage to get the Blade Runner game, and the rights to Acclaim's old …

Re: Dosbox and USB connected floppies under Win7?

From within DOSBox, I can view the directory contents of the b:\ drive, or run a DOS editor to edit a file (TEMP.TXT) on that disk. But when I run a particular DOS program that wants to generate a disk image on that disk image on that b:\, it gives me the message: "Diskette error - try another" Why …

Re: Windows 95/98 emulation/VM options?

in PC Emulation
The reason for the X800 XT is that the X800/X850 are the fastest cards that still have 98 drivers. As PCem is running in emulation, you are limited by the speed of your computer and not some arbitrary limit imposed by the particular hardware it emulates. Besides, depending on what you're trying to …

Re: Dosbox and USB connected floppies under Win7?

Try using imgmount in DOSBox to mount a blank floppy image (or just a copy of some other disk image). After you run your program, you can then use a Windows program to write the image to a floppy. If necessary, you can try booting an OS in DOSBox first, but if it comes to that, PCem would probably …

Re: Windows 95/98 emulation/VM options?

in PC Emulation
All my real machines are build for the highest performance/compatibility for the specific OS. Well, none of those machines you've listed have an Nvidia card either, so what does it matter that PCem doesn't support it? So many emulators for every system these days but running 95/98 stuff on a modern …

Re: The 65MB Win98 ram limit

in Windows
All I did is go back to memmaker to see if I can reverse what I did. No dice. The Help page I previously linked to suggests you just need to type "memmaker /undo". Is that what you did? Also, where are thse *.UMB files located? If they're not in an obvious place, then running "dir /s *.umb" from …

Re: Request for custom dos Cheat codes

in DOS
I'm well aware of that, however you can make the same argument about copying disk games also a large amount of people were not using BBS let alone cracking or distributing illegally either, especially compared to today. How do you think this software spread if not through BBSs or people swapping …

Re: Request for custom dos Cheat codes

in DOS
both have no bearing on the physical setup and experience of everything being playing like it was back in the day. People "back in the day" would be quite happy to download various freeware "trainers" from BBSs (or swap them with friends) rather than insisting on original disks of commercial …

Re: The 65MB Win98 ram limit

in Windows
Thanks, guys. I think I'll get out another harddrive and install win98 and copy the files to my main drive. That's overkill. To restate the above: memmaker can only possibly change exactly three files , and they're not particularly mysterious ones. That is the extent of memmaker's capabilities! …

Re: Corrupted batch files

You are probably encountering a line-terminator inconsistency. See for instance http://www.cs.toronto.edu/~krueger/csc209h/tut/line-endings.html and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newline . A lot of editors automatically account for single-byte line terminators, but you should be able to check by …

Re: Windows 95/98 emulation/VM options?

in PC Emulation
I did read about PCem on reddit before asking here and it did not sound great. I was on the website and there are no Nvidia cards or Voodoo 5 and stuff like this. Is there some game in particular you're looking at that needs Win9x but also requires a Voodoo5 or a particular Nvidia card? If you are …

Re: Request for custom dos Cheat codes

in DOS
I don't have a floppy drive here firstly and enjoy playing everything in the original manner But doesn't "playing everything in the original manner" mean having to endure laborious repetition rather than "quicker practice"? If you don't have the same old "insanely time consuming" frustration as …

Re: The 65MB Win98 ram limit

in Windows
Already tried that. I got CONFIG.SYS to say DEVICE=C:\WINDOWS\HIMEM.SYS but then the boot sequence said "windows protection error. you need to restart your computer." Did you only replace the line about HIMEM.SYS, or did you replace the EMM386 line as well? I hope you haven't been randomly …

Re: Request for custom dos Cheat codes

in DOS
I would need the original disks. If you want to track it down, it's from a company named REM Software, if that helps. Some people also suggest "Fix People Expert". See for instance https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?t=41733 . Is it possibly you or someone can provide the codes just for those …

Re: The 65MB Win98 ram limit

in Windows
memmaker capped my ram! memmaker isn't magical. As per the help page , all it does is modify your config.sys, autoexec.bat, and system.ini. And apparently it leaves behind backups and a logfile as well. How exactly were you running memmaker on your system? Are you dual-booting Windows 98 and DOS 6. …
