The first two use serial numbers to convert shareware to full versions (same convenience).

Ort Software lets you buy and download (at least one of its games, AstroFire, is a DOS game).

Chinese spam

I'm getting a lot of Chinese/Taiwanese/other Far East Asian spam. I almost never get any English-language spam. They are wasting their time, if I even wanted to buy their products, I can't because I can't even read them (not that translation would be much help either). Anyone else experiencing somet...

It appears the game is divided into multiple floppy disks. You may need to recreate the original diskette structure somehow, so that the game can use its built-in static links to find its data files.

Just an idea, not sure how valid it is...

Modems sometimes strangle sound cards, since some modems "borrow" the sound card for its own sound functions.

Trial and error is sometimes the only way to really find out, due to the zillions of possible computer configurations.

If both of them are normal Socket 7 (not Super Socket 7), then I would go with the i430TX, as it was Intel's final Pentium chipset before it moved on to its Pentium II/Slot 1/440 series.

If the VIA is a Super Socket 7 (with 100 MHz FSB support) then I would go with the VIA.

AFAIK, #2 is the best one. I owned an S3 Savage before, it sucked, and I brought it back to the store for a refund (I paid about $150 for that blasted thing, and the 3D accelerated games played poorly). The S3 Virge DX/GX was decent for its time, but the video benchmark only had about 17000 (Not tha...

Alright, take that download file I mentioned earlier, make a new folder called RESCUEZSYSTEM32 if it's not there already, then copy my AUTOEXEC.NT file there instead of the normal System32 folder.

Yes there was. However, in the past few months or so, we've been trying to clean up this forum. The plan included getting rid of stuff that was deemed unnecessary. There are already quite a large number of forums here, and thus getting rid of useless ones is vital for efficient operation. To me, thi...

Heh...

There was a Grand Falls-Windsor guy named 86Ashes a while back, but he only came to find a game.

I'm one of the oldest here. The webmaster of our 3rd network site (Joris Drenth) is only about 15 or 16.

If Civilization 2 is a Windows game, why does it care about AUTOEXEC.NT? Strange... :rolleyes:

Sure, that's OK. If there was an installation routine, perhaps it screwed up along the way. Try re-installing the game (if there is an install routine). Or if it's a DOS-based install routine, we would need a way to install it in pure DOS, then copy the already-installed game to Windows XP, then run...

Since AUTOEXEC.NT has no effect on DOSBox, DOSBox is worth a try.
