Jazz Jazzrabbit

Post by Guest »

Hey Everyone,
I just downloaded jazz jackrabbit and I can't seem to run the game, as soon as I click the icon to run the game a black screen appears saying I have a run time error, and the rest I can't read... I have already unzipped it and everything.

So if you could help me that would be awesome!!

Try running it through Dosbox, that can slow it down. The issue is that your computer is too fast to run game - it can't handle it. Doxbox can slow the game down, emulating the speed of old computers.

Nobody knows how to run Dosbox.
Just type in the sub-directory after you mount the drive. You should download D-fend, a nice front end that makes running games very easy, through visual menus instead of having to type a bunch of commands.

Try that out; there's another topic here on Dosbox that can help you out, too, if this wasn't enough. If you register, you can PM me and I can give you some personal help, if you need it, or just keep posting here. Through PMs, though, it's easier for me to walk you through it.
