PM has been disabled. Besides, it wouldn't be a good thing swapping things here. Write me at el_pusher@hotmail.com and i will see what i can do. Put Bubble Bobble or something like that on message subject.

Hi el_PuSHer, I'm trying to run Bubble Bobble in any of my 2 PCs without success. I downloaded several different versions and I'm experiencing troubles anywhere.

CASE 1:
My main goal is to be able to run it on a 386 with Hercules Graphics Adapter (using SIMCGA emulators). I do have a SMICGA which is able to launch the game but it will start running like really fast and all of the sudden will go totally slow, almost freezing.

CASE 2:
I tried to run it on a 486 with VGA + Sound Blaster and sprites and texts will be corrupted and level would often go buggy.

Is it okay if I email you showing you the versions that I'm using and you can provide me any leads on what to do?
I've tried everything but cannot seem to have a playable version of the game in any of the above mention hardwares.

Cyrix 80486DX 80Mhz, 32mb RAM, 1024kb Trident VGA, Sound Blaster 16, 4GB HDD, 3 1/2 floppy disk drive + Creative CD-ROM drive unit.
Intel 80386 DX 40Mhz, 8MB RAM, Trident VGA 256kb, Sound Blaster 16 CT 2950, 525MB HDD, 3 1/2 floppy, 52x CD-ROM .

Unicorn herding operations are proceeding, but all the totes of hens teeth and barrels of rocking horse poop give them plenty of hiding spots.
