Trying to get Terminator: SkyNet running in pure DOS 7 from a Win98SE install, on a PIII-550 w/512MB RAM, S3 ViRGE/VX PCI video, AWE64 Gold ISA sound.
After installing the game from CD, setting up sound, and trying to launch the game, it aborts with a library error - usually mentioning something like gamedata\MDMDMUSC.BSA or gamedata\MDMDHRES.BSA.
I tried the following things:
- stock install
- no-CD mode (by copying all files to gamedata and editing INSTALL.DAT)
- unofficial patch (Re: Terminator Skynet problem)
- sound/music configured for SB16 instead of AWE32
- DOS32A (may have resulted in a different error)
None of it gets the game running. The *only* thing that works is running it from inside of Win98SE, which someone in the DOSBox thread mentioned they had to do as well.
Has anyone ever successfully ran this in pure DOS?
