  1. What Kind of games areyou talking about if their dos games or older games i could help (mabey)
  2. If they're dos based, check out www.dosbox.com. Works quite well.
  3. +1 for DOSBox. But you really need to be more specific as to what games you're talking about. I've managed to get quite a few old titles running by using the built-in Compatibility Mode.

    Thanks for answering back. I tried to mount a new directory, either I'm doing something wrong or my cpu won't let me
  9. Have you tried the FAQ page? If you can run Vista, I doubt that your cpu is to blame. It had been a very long time since I messed with DOS, but I managed to get Wolfenstein 3D running in Vista a while back. Check out:
