    RelEase date

    Cool. So only a few thousand years till release :cool: So I guess the Release date on your HP ("Release: 2004") is still there, cause in those days there will be already another date system for 2004 years? ;)

    Run All Old WC Games in DOSBox Walkthrough

    Why didn't you just mount your cd-drive as cd-drive? No reason to copy the cd to the wc3 folder, imo. Also might explain your probs...

    What is a good setup to run all versions of WC?

    To prevent speed probs with wc1/sm1 you can disable the CPU cache - That helps at least for some PCs (did so for my K6-2 400mhz)

    Difference between WC4 cd and WC4 DVD versions?

    Depends on the DVD version - the single-sided DVD has got the same quality like the CD version, but the double sided has got better ones.

    Still most likely too slow for WC3 via Dosbox (I've tried: PIV @3.6Ghz, 2gb ram etc, and it's still too slow for close combat ) - but would be worth a try... (maybe A64 are way faster in DosBox. No idea... Anyway: Check out the dosbox-sticky thread for help with wc3. - Your prob has been...

    Run All Old WC Games in DOSBox Walkthrough

    Does it run at perfect speed without sound-probs or so? If so, it would be real nice if you would post, how you got it working.

    Run All Old WC Games in DOSBox Walkthrough

    Yep, has been asked several times already ;) You need to change ems=True to ems=False in the dosbox.conf - that should fix that prob. - If you still got probs, check my conf-file for WC3 (see post #12) Only main prob with that conf is, that wc3 is unstable with dynamic core. - You might...

    FreeDO and Super Wing Commander problem

    Question: Is your keyboard Ps/2 or USB? Mine is USB. - Could be the prob, I'd guess, or not?

    Wing Commander III (3) trouble

    Like I said: It's doubtfull. I mean: I have got the KS-version as well and was able to patch my german DOS WC3 to a German KS WC3 version WITHOUT that patch, but just by copying some files of the KS version. - So it's not really a fan-made project... And to the WC4 patch: That one was...

    Wing Commander III (3) trouble

    ? Didn't I already reply to your question about the random crashes in another thread this morning? Or was that somebody else? Anyway: Make sure you use normal core and not dynamic, since dynamic causes such crashes you described. - But keep in mind, that you can only run lower cycles with...

    Run All Old WC Games in DOSBox Walkthrough

    You need to lower the cpu-cycles to stop the choppy sound till CPU usage is under 100% (under 50% for HT/dual CPU). - But then again even the cycles I posted aren't enough for smooth play. So I guess your CPU is slower than 3Ghz/3000+? If so, you should not expect that much :( Anyway, try...

    Run All Old WC Games in DOSBox Walkthrough

    I'll try... 1.) You should know, that for running WC3 via Dosbox at Ok-speeds you need at least 3Ghz (imho even my 3.2Ghz PIV @ 3.6Ghz isn't enough for close combat. But no idea how well the AMd A64 perform in Dosbox) 2.) The easiest way to save time is to create a new wc3.conf with the...

    Run All Old WC Games in DOSBox Walkthrough

    that number depends on your pc. - If you got sound-probs try out lowering cycles ingame in window-mode, till your CPU-usage (see task-manager) is always under 100% (or ~ under 50% for PIV HTs / Dual CPU/core systems). That's at least how I find out perfect numbers for each PC...
