Hi..old computer 486 DX 66 to slow for newer games. Months ago bought Gateway WIN XP 1.9 512 ram Geoforce 3 SB Digital LIVe
No games play. No DOS....
Most games DOS
Program Compatibility rarely plays games.
Was told to dual boot. Tried Partition Magic and it crashed my system.
Maybe a second hard drive? What about a external HD? would that work?
Also was told to make a bootable DOS CD disc. Don't know how to do that. TRied putting old WIN 98 and to install on CD ROM both computer said can't do that. I am stumped
Comeon guys. I need help with this one.
Dying to play 11th hour. That's how long that game has been sitting around.
Don't want to spend a few hundred to buy an older computer.
Must be another way.
These lines are what XP uses when it starts a DOS based game. Most need the emm386 memory manager which XP does does not seem to allocate properly even when you right click on the program icon and tell it to.
Ya carm2 == carmageddon 2.
The game runs (sometimes), but you can not see servers nor join them in a lan session. It's only multiplayer mode runs over ipx, but for some reason no one has found a way to get it to work using win2k/xp.
Anyone tried using winex?
I don't have enough room for a linux partition right now =\.
