Recently I try to start old Earthsiege under DosBox. Game itself works very good, but not intro schemes.
1. It seems, game not found CD-ROM (because it says just before movies "..intro3.avi not found"). Intro3 is on CD, and readme says "you can see movies in better quality, _if_ you insert CD". So maybe it's "harddisk" movie. But it must not be, because CD-letter clearly seen in the config. (This is letter I).
2. Intro movies way too fast! Of course, I can slow down DosBox, but even on 5000 cycles it still remains faster, then must. Game itself on 5000 is slide-show, so it's definitely not "speed problem" in general. 😀 I try all CPU options in DosBox, but without success. January ykhwong build still have this issue.
3. Windows 98 with the same game config (but without DosBox) haven't this problem. Movies plays as it must (but I don't know about intro3 - speed too fast for me to notice this message).
P.S. Another strange notice: game itself can be throttled in the DosBox up to 30 000 cycles without problems, but sound test in the config overloads my processor even on 10 000. Why it so?
