Quicktime's problem was that the content was at times dependent on a specific QuickTime version. So having the newest installed didn't automatically mean that it worked. Especially major version changes were problematic

Master of Orion 2 runs well under Windows 10.
Just copy the missing dplay.dll in the game directory to start "orion95.exe".

Some support screens will have unusable mouse and tactical combat will go way too fast. So I wouldn't say it runs well, or is even playable, without additional fixes.

Also the game will crash a lot, but I'm not sure that's a compatibility issue or if it was just that way in the first place. There's a reason people are sticking with the DOS version.

Workaround alert. Really, that means the game is nonfunctional in Windows.

Yeah that's right.

Apparently 32-bit is dead and nobody likes P4s.
Of course, as always, I'm open to correction...😉

I'm not sure if compatibility with windows 10 has been tested before and there are already lists out there, probably

meanwhile a complete list of games for windows 3.x would be good

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Windows_3.x_games

is one useful starter

and many of these are win 32 compatible anyway

I think they may work in Win 10 32-bit, but Win 11 may have a problem.

good point, all those 16 bit applications will need a vm or something

Everything for Wondows 3.x work fine inside Dosbox with a Windows 3.x install in it.

Oregon Trail 5th edition gold is worse than Oregon Trail 5th edition! The gold version does have two different years on the CD.

Assuming the games that don't work are Windows 3.1 was going to far.

I forgot about the compatibilty mode menu. It doesn't do any good for Moo II.
