Re: Old GOG games are slowly getting killed

in Windows
I wouldn't expect Microsoft to care about the problem based on reports from gamers. They care if some enterprise software breaks, which might be the case if a compatibility mode is broken. For gamers it's probably best to hope for someone to create a third party solution, I think hoping gho can …

Re: LittleWing Pinball on Windows 10?

in Windows
Use DDrawCompat: https://github.com/narzoul/DDrawCompat/releases or WineD3D: https://fdossena.com/?p=wined3d/index.frag Normally for problems like this I would say always try dgVoodoo2 or Dxwnd first, but they both have issues with this game. I only tested Monster Fair.

Re: Windowed Option?

Might be off-topic, but just in case you don't know, the best software for windowing games is DxWnd: https://sourceforge.net/projects/dxwnd/ There's some way to integrate it with dgVoodoo too, though I personally haven't had much success with that.

Re: Video games are too heavily monetized these days

What are the odds multiplayer and phone games will remain playable, say 50 years in the future, without any replacement for the monetization scheme? I would say very slim. As for non-multiplayer non-phone free to play games, I can't really name one. Can you name a few?

Re: Heretic II crash on non-Training mission load

in Windows
Though while it might be interesting to see why it doesn't work on whatever release you do have, does it really matter? Unless there's something significantly different about it, just download a copy that works. I don't really see the problem.

Re: Old GOG games are slowly getting killed

I can play the game just fine, so there's something wrong with your setup. It gets ingame. With 3D rendering, sound and all that fancy stuff. Just to be obvious: you need to disable shims when using virtual heap, and the game seems to need async blit.

Re: Video games are too heavily monetized these days

For example all free2play games. You've been playing ALL free to play games lately? I don't believe you. I didn't play all free2play games, but all free2play games I've played was like that. Are they even worth caring about when they're gone, when you're not even fond enough of them to name them? …

DxWnd implementation of EmulateHeap aka shim:EmulateWin9xHeap is just hooking EmulateHeap to DxWnd. DxWnd has a "Virtual Heap" option (compat tab), I'm not sure what it does but it works for M1 Tank Platoon 2. I'm guessing it does some part of what Microsoft's heap emulation does. It does but that …

Re: Video games are too heavily monetized these days

i am not happy with how extremely monetized games are these days, I mean in 20-30 years when we look back and say hey this is classic gaming, how much of it will still exist? Heavily monetized games are a minority. Only the biggest AAA titles really bother to any significant extent. So I don't …
