Are you using dosbox? If so, mess with ctrl-f10 and f12 to speed it up.

I remember that, actually. Heck, I probably WAS the first to talk to you here....

I remember that avatar. That was pretty cool. Wish I could find that again...

The problem with Halo is that you even middle-to-higher computers can't run it without such a low quality that it's not worth playing.

The thing about Dosbox, DB, is that more and more I find it, while often being the last resort, is simply the best solution. Games that are a real biotch to get running run under it with minimal effort (generally), and once you get used to the interface (which DOES take a while) it's pretty fast and...

Sounds like Odell Down Under, an old game by Mecc. I'm almost 100% sure that's what it is.

Yeah, but I mean, the way they run on PC. To make it look half-decent you need a friggin' fast computer. UT2k4 runs much easier and looks 10x better.

Hmm, read some of "How I got this way" on Amazon. Great stuff. See, the great thing about Pat McMan is that he bases his stories on real childhood memories, but embellishes them just enough to know they're exaggerated but not so much that you can't half believe them.

What, the link to the ftp file that's a .zip? That's a full version man, and I thank thee kindly for the link, KOA. That's most certainly not a help link, considering that KOA's doing the linking, not you. Wallster.

I have to say, though, the graphics were beautiful. And my compy ran the demo's standard graphics with no problems at all, and it's not top-of-the-line, either. Now, let's compare UT2k4 to halo's graphics and system-guzzling reasource taking. Hmm, wonder which one I'd get.

Well, that link has to go. T2k isn't shareware. But the link's not going before I copy it, though.

But he's asking how to do it if it's not. Most dos games don't support USB, they can't detect it because when they were made USB didn't exist. I'm unaware of a way to fix it, however.

Well, my biggest complaint about Ut2k4 is the rocket launcher. But, yeah, it does feel more UT-like, and it may warrant me buying the full version. I've only tried the demo, though I must say that I didn't like the Onslaught mode very much. It was too... Big.
