Re: Windows XP Problems WITH Solutions

I used dosbox and used these instructions.
This is from here:

1. Make sure that you are at drive C. If your DOS prompt does not

look like "C\>," then type "C:" followed by "CD" at the DOS

prompt.

2. Create a directory on your hard drive for the game by typing

"MD STTNG."

3. Change to your new Star Trek: The Next Generation "A Final

Unity" directory by typing "CD\STTNG" and your DOS prompt should

now say, "C:\STTNG>."

4. Create a directory for your saved games by typing "MD SAVEGAME."

5. Copy the *.LST files from the Star Trek: The Next Generation "A

Final Unity" CD-ROM to your hard drive by typing "COPY D:\*.LST"

(assuming that your CD-ROM drive is D).

6a. To install the minimal version, type:

D:\UNZIP D:\STTNGINS.ZIP

6b. To install the standard version, type:

D:\UNZIP D:\STTNGINS.ZI

D:\UNZIP D:\STTNG.ZIP @STD1.LST

D:\UNZIP D:\STTNG.ZIP @STD2.LST

6c. To install the optimal version, type:

D:\UNZIP D:\STTNGINS.ZIP

D:\UNZIP D:\STTNG.ZIP @STD1.LST

D:\UNZIP D:\STTNG.ZIP @STD2.LST

D:\UNZIP D:\STTNG.ZIP @OPTIMAL.LST

D:\UNZIP D:\STTNG.ZIP *.IMG

After that you'll need to config your STTNG.ini file since you cant run the setup.

A user here said these settings worked for him:


Audio=SB8
Port=0x220
IRQ=0x7
DMA=0x1
Video=LO8
Sound=ON
Music=ON
Voices=ON
Movies=ON
Advice=0x0
VolMusic=0x7fff
VolSound=0x7fff
Dialogs=ON
Scale=ON
DPixel=OFF
Path=C:\STTNG\
CD=D:\
UniVESA=OFF


I think for sound, dosbox default is IRQ 5.

Re: Windows XP Problems WITH Solutions

I have final unity running with (almost) no issues through DOSBox 0.63. My only hangup is that the mouse movement is frustrating. My hand has to cross the entire mousepad multiple times to get even halfway across the screen.... But anyway, it's installed, running and the audio doesn't even skip, and there really wasn't that much modification that I had to do to the default dosbox.conf

what I remember having to do was...

mnt D: D:\ cdrom -t
mnt c: c:\
changed the audio blocksize to 1536 to eliminate some initial skipping of the sound
changed to fullscreen=TRUE

I ran install.exe through dosbox, and though it seemed to take forever, it did actually install the game and it does run. I can take a quick look when I get home, and I'll mod this post with the dosbox.conf if you want it.

oh well, I couldn't edit it, so I'll make a new post. My sttng.conf file is located here...

sttng.conf for dosbox-0.63

I ran the install program on the unity cd through dosbox and it ran (more or less) fine....

Re: Windows XP Problems WITH Solutions

THanks for that DosBox tip, it got my Tomb Raider demos to play.

I tried installing Generations on my mother's computer (windows 98) and the game crashes after the Amargosa mission. It was playing better than on my XP, though, where it wouldn't play anything at all. I'll have to try it on Dosbox to see if it helps.

A question about DosBox... I noticed if I raise the CPU cycles high enough, the game slows down again. It played fine after I took the number down again. Is there any specific number of CPU cycles I should keep it at, and is there a danger of burning out my computer if I set it up too high?

I'm a novice, just to clear things up.

Sounds pretty normal.

Lower the hardware accelaration so it is on one notch.

The new nVidia drivers now fix the graphic issues that most people were having with a nVidia card/XP/Armada.

Re: Windows XP Problems WITH Solutions

One thing I would note is a problem with Bridge Commander that I think only happens under XP. Specifically, when you open the installer, the percentage bar runs quickly to full, and then everything disappears. You then have to just sit and wait for a substantial period of time, and there will be no indication that anything is occurring. For me, it usually takes between 10 and 15 minutes to actually start installing after the setup program seems to disappear, but it will eventually work if you wait long enough.

Re: Windows XP Problems WITH Solutions

I know this might have been mentioned before to you, but have you tried playing it under dosbox. I have the cd version and it plays fine under this. I am using dosbox .63 to run the game. Here is the main page for dosbox. http://dosbox.sourceforge.net/news.php?show_news=1

They have pretty good info on using it and have a link to ask questions and get answers.

Hope this helps. (I am trying to get 25th anniversary to play currently under xp and am also having touble.)
