Fade to Black - either crashes or no movies

This game is giving me a serious headache. I used to had the old warez version that had no movies included and it worked fine in DOSBOX (very fluent even in VESA). I refused to play it however, because the movies were missing and so I bought a copy from ebay. So I thought this would work without a …

Re: Cybermage - makes dosbox crash

After years and years of looking, I finally got my hands on this underrated FPS but now that I got it, DOSBOX won't run it :(. The games catalogue shows that it should work. This is the full and original CD version. I install, pick the lowest options possible and then try to run the game but it …

Re: Star Control 2 palette problem

One note: the /g:BIOS tag doesn't work with the popular abandonware version on the net - it has a starcon2.com crack that will run the game without the need for the starmap. Luckily, I bought the original Starcon 2 in mint condition (still in plastic wrap) on ebay for a dollar or two :D and it works …

Re: Digital sound under true DOS with ISA Soundblaster

in DOS
Thanks but I cant' use that - I already discovered what the problem is - but I will need help fixing it. Basically, Low DMA is unavailable in Windows and DOS. Low DMA is usually 0,1,2 or 3 and is used for 8bit sound (which older games use). As a result, newer games play digital sound without a …

Re: Digital sound under true DOS with ISA Soundblaster

in DOS
Yeah I know - CTCM is loaded if I want to - but it's not needed for some reason. If I boot under DOS, just by setting the blaster lines in config.sys and autoexec.bat, I can get sound in most games. It's weird - I doubt if CTCM changes anything about it. It seems to just "borrow" the settings from …

Re: Digital sound under true DOS with ISA Soundblaster

in DOS
Forget about awe - that's for midi emulation and has no effect on digital sound. The soundcard is basically a SB16 with upgraded parts and will work using the old SB16 drivers if need be. The problem is not software. This card has ALWAYS worked perfectly in another computer with the SAME settings …

Digital sound under true DOS with ISA Soundblaster

in DOS
I consider myself a veteran when it comes to getting old games running, but this one has me stumped: A week ago I bought an old IBM Aptiva 166 with 64Mb RAM and 2.0Gb HDD. I put inside my own old (ISA) AWE64 Gold and a DVD drive. The AWE64 gave me some problems at first because of conflicts with the …

I have: XP 2500+ 1Gb DDR 400 Radeon 9800 Pro SB Audigy 2 WinXP When trying to run C&C, I get an error saying it can't find the CD. I tried the following line: mount d: h:/ -t cdrom -ioctl -label GDI But it won't work ... any ideas ? I got similar problems with LBA2 and other friends have them with …
