I bought my copy of KKND just a few weeks ago at a local game shop. And I see plenty of them at eBay . For the record, this is what my CD (well, it is actually an image) contains when viewed from inside DOSBox: Directory of D:\. . <DIR> 17-02-1997 14:38 .. <DIR> 17-02-1997 14:38 AUTORUN INF 46 01-02...

It looked okay what you did there Undertaker. You shouldn't need the -usecd 0 and the -ioctl options when mounting the CD, but I don't think it matters. But try without them. Also, you should set gus=false in your dosbox.conf, so the installer will pick the SoundBlaster device instead. That you only...

I think the answer to that is evident: The one that gives you the fewest errors. Do you compile with -Wall ?

Ahh - the joy of C and pointers, always giving the programmer enough rope to hang himself :) I don't know how good/recent this DJGPP compiler is. I would try to compile, not run, just compile the code using some other compiler, with all the warning flags and strict compliance flags you can throw at ...

Crunchy -can't you try to isolate the part that is causing the error? Like uncommenting most of the body in CreateSpriteSet() and see if it still crashes? Then re-enabling the initialization part, but leave the for-loop de-activated? After a while you should be able to tell which part of the code th...

gameboy kid - instead of doing something crazy like that CIH-virus, why not try the normal method of (re)installing / re-flashing the BIOS? I found a manual here: http://www.motherboards.org/files/manuals/1/p2l97s-105.pdf and new BIOS files and utilities here: http://support.asus.com/download/downlo...

I don't care you if are the last emperor of China dosraider. If you don't have any constructive comments, then stay the hell out of my thread.

I ask here, because I assumed there would be more people here that had experience with hybrid CD's. And I have asked on VOGONS.

Mounting the ISO-9660 part of a hybrid CD on Mac OSX?

Anyone (Wally?) who knows of a simple way to mount a hybrid (HFS and ISO-9660) CD-ROM on Mac OSX so the ISO-9660 part becomes visible to DOSBox? From my on-line search, I have come up with 3 different ways, but I have no way of testing them: From a shell-prompt drutil status to obtain the device nam...

Hi Stupid.

1) Where do you want to put it on your hard drive? Tell us the full name of the folder you want to install KKND into.

2) What is the drive letter of your CD/DVD drive?

As long as it is a game I have, or can get a legal copy of, I will try :)

KKND was actually bought 2 days ago. Saw it at my local game pusher, remembered the thread here, and decided it was worth a shot.

From what I see, I think I will like it. It looks a lot like Battle Isle which I like a lot.

Take a look at this little Zip-archive . It contains 2 files: Run.cmd - A Windows command file to launch DOSBox 0.72. dosbox.conf - A DOSBox configuration file with commands to mount drives and install KKND. Download and unzip into some directory on your hard-disk. Use Notepad to check that the path...

Help with pirate games or not ?

As in so much else here in life, the following holds true: If you have the knowledge and the time, do it yourself and it will be cheap.
