Re: wolfenstien 3d

in DOS
This may sound stupid but have you tried running it using VDMSound?. Often, is a good alternative to DOSBOX emulation.

Re: Discworld2 & XP

I'm playing it right now, so I know it works under XP, but there's a glitch to it. You won't believe but windows version doesn't work because it uses some strange DX 3.x calls which WinXP doesn't seem to support anymore. So, the solution is to run the DOS version inside XP [/b]. Fun, isn't it?. It …

Re: Blood Bowl WinXP

Have you tried it under real DOS (with a bootable disc)? Then you can try step by step. First of all, try running it under WinXP without any sound at all. If it works, then it must be some problem with the sound emulation. Are you sure that you have specified right values for IRQ, DMA, etc in the …

Re: VESA isn't only video problem under XP

in DOS
Yes, I also tried VGABIOS and I got the same garbled screen. I went ahead and flashed the bios; obviously got the same garbled screen. Maybe it wasn't a reference bios, although Ray Adam's bios editor and flash program stated it was. Anyway, I'm back to starting point. I wonder why manufacturers …

Who can explain this?

I've noticed that sometimes some game(s) will run better if using VDMSound withouth the Launchpad. Why is this? I mean even selecting same parameters for Launchpad of those that are inside the INI file. ???

Re: VESA isn't only video problem under XP

in DOS
HunterZ: I've been tinkering with bios options all day and have tried the 'snoop palette' option both enabled and disabled. I have even disabled USB and put agp speed to 2x. NO change. Anyway, I doubt my card is damaged because everything else is working properly, even another DOS games. Thanks God …

Re: Getting more base memory in DOS

in DOS
If you use a PIF file try checking the reserved checkbox under Conventional Memory properties but i doubt it will do anything. No harm in trying, though.

Re: VESA isn't only video problem under XP

in DOS
Thank you very much. To make things worse, I run those games under real DOS and still I got the same palette issues, so I am afraid it's some sort of hardware problem with my card. I'm trying to find a bios replacement (even if it's a reference bios, because I have already dumped my current bios to …

Re: VESA isn't only video problem under XP

in DOS
Nicht Sehr Gut and others: Again, thank you very much for your replies. By messed-up display, I just mean the colour palette isn't right. Checked bios. All settings seemed to be just right. I have tried three different detonator revisions to no avail. Also I tried both games under DosBox. Both of …

Re: Phantom fighter

in DOS
The version I have (very primitive) has an CGAFIGHT.EXE and EGAFIGHT.EXE files. I downloaded another version from the internet and it has VGASHOOT.EXE , allowing now proper function under VGA cards.

Re: Phantom fighter

in DOS
[Nicht Sehr Gut]: The game gives me a gpf when run from a dos windows inside XP. Under DosBox it loads but the screen appears half-cut. Under real dos, the bottom line appears cut too.

Re: VESA isn't only video problem under XP

in DOS
[Nicht Sehr Gut]: Thank you for your reply. Sometimes it's frustrating when you post something and you get no replies, even for saying "I don't know what you're talking about". That being said, I will dowload another Detonator to try it. Running on a GF4 Ti4200 (Creative)

Re: PCI soundcard for Real DOS

in DOS
My ASUS A7V333 has integrated CMI8738 audio (C-MEDIA) that is directly taken from an old PCI card (I think). It has DOS SB emulation, albeit it's not perfect is quite good if you can re-route the sound card IRQ to anything below 10. Some of my friends have another PCI soundcard (old) that isn't …
