Re: Windows XP Problems WITH Solutions

I'm afraid my technical knowledge is pretty limited. I can try to find out what the graphics card is (since I think that's probably the main difference), but I don't know off the top of my head, and I'm not entirely sure how to find it out (some geek I am!).

If you have DirectX then you can use the run command to run dxdiag, it will tell you almost everything about your computer, processor, memory, grapics card, sound card...

Okay, I'll try that, but it might be a while before I can get to that computer. I work tomorrow, so it mightn't be until the evening.

Re: Windows XP Problems WITH Solutions

I know we weren't supposed to ask for help in this thread only post solutions to known problems but thought it be better than starting a new Thread.

I decided to play Armada 1 again other day and it installed fine and loaded up the game but when it comes to actaully starting a mission either on SP or Quick battle it starts to jitter and becomes unplayable and some times crashes altogether could anyone help.

Re: Windows XP Problems WITH Solutions

Go into your DxDiag and turn down the hardware acceleration for the sound, then if that is unsuccessful, try the same for graphics.

thx for your advise, Melis. The only problem, is that win xp does't have the "Prevent MS-DOS based programs from detecting Windows" option under the advanced in the program tab. there is only a chckbox writen "hardware emulation... something". as i wrtote, i was able to bypass the files/buffers problem with dosbox, but still stuck with the cd-rom issue (can't ignore it. it's marked as red). i've read tips for instaling the game booting from a win95 bootdisk, but my computer is ntfs, so the bootdisk don't recognize my drives.
Anyway, i apreciate what you've done. If there's anyone who can help me please... i'm desperate...
thx.
I was so desperate once that i bought an old 486 so I can run the damn thing and it still gave me problems

Re: Windows XP Problems WITH Solutions

I recently bought Star Trek: Borg, but under Windows XP, the graphics were grainy and distorted. I looked into Virtual PC, and was finally able to run it with decent graphics! (Well, decent enough - obviously it was never going to be DVD quality.)

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/vir...loads/sp1.mspx

There's Microsoft's (free!) Virtual PC software. It simulates a PC inside Windows XP. You can install Windows 95, 98, ME, etc. - as long as you've got an installation CD - and then run Windows 95-based games natively with few problems.

Nightcrawler, your problem with this is that your hard drive is NTFS - this isn't an issue. The Virtual PC software asks you what OS you're going to install and sets everything up, so for a Windows 95 installation, it'll generate a virtual FAT32 hard drive. And if you have problems, you can use FDISK and FORMAT commands from a bootdisk to set up the hard drive as you'd like it.

Unfortunatly that does sound like a disk error, I have the same game running on XP Pro SP2, with a 2.4GHz processor. If you can you should try to find a new CD, even if it's just to borrow and see if it really is the CD.

Re: Windows XP Problems WITH Solutions

So did we ever get a step-by-step set of instructions for installing ST 25th Anniv. in DosBox?

It'd be great if anyone could send those to me, cause all of the above is making my head spin!

Does anyone have any ideas on how to get Captain's Chair up and running on Windows XP? (I'm amazed at how little info there is on this title!)
