I thought you were still looking for WC1 and WC2. Anyway, post your autoexec.bat, and config.sys if you don't have enough DOS memory.

My neighbour had the games. He dosn´t tell me this. What must i do with my Autoexec and Config?? I must also configure my DOS or?

Post the contest of the two files here, and some people here should be able to modify them so you can play the games. Did you try instaling the games already? What message do you get when you try to play it?

Being able to "tweak the conventional memory is out of the question so tweak the system files so enough room in available.
The problem is it's easier said than done. I still can't run armada.

So why don't you ask here for help?

Maestro- post the text from those files here, on the BB. Do you know where to find those files?

OK, We're going to get the files, and also create a shortcut to DOS at the same time, since you may need it. Click with your right mouse button somwhere on the desktop, a little menu will show up. Go to NEW, and another menu will show up, chose SHORTCUT, it should be at the top. A small window should appear. In the box under Command line type COMMAND.COM, and click Next, than click Finish. Right click on the shortcut we just made, and chose Properties. Than go to the "Program" tab. Click on Advanced. There will be a little circle next to "Specify a new MS-DOS configuration", click on it. The two boxes are now visible below it, one of them says Config.sys, and another one says Autoexce.bat, right click in one of the boxes, and chose select all, than right click on the selected text and chose Copy. Than come here, chose to reply to this post, and paste that text here. Than do the same thing with the second box and post it. God, I hope you can understand this.

The games can't be played under windows, and many times people have problems geting enough memory for the games to work in DOS. Anyhow, you'll have to wait for someone who knows this stuff (like Stinger). I know how to get it, but I don't know what changes to make.

Sure, I'm surprised he didn't respond to this thread already. He must be offline today.

Earthworm... It is quite possible to make WC1 & 2 work under Windows ... It's just incredibly difficult (I like a challange)

Maestro... This appears to be the autoexec.bat and config.sys files you find in your C:\ directory. We don't want to modify those ones. Can you please post the text in the shortcut (Earthworm gave the instructions on how to do that.) If that is the contents of those text boxes please tell me (if it is it is larger than many of the ones I have seen...)

Try this config files with a BOOT DISK or as parameter in a DOS shortcut. Do _NOT_ modify your your config files on C:.
If this still doesn't work remove the mouse driver as well. If this still does not work post again. (preferably to alt.games.wing-commander if you wanna reach me. I am not here that often)

Autoexec.bat:
set mouse=c:\mouse
LH c:\mouse\imouse.com
LH C:\Windows\Command\MSCDEX.exe /D:MTMIDEo1 /M:10 /e

Config.sys:
device=c:\Windows\himem.sys
device=c:\Windows\emm386.exe ram
dos=high,umb
files=30
buffers=30 /x
Lastdrive=M
Devicehigh=C:\MTM\MTMCDAI.sys /D:\MTMIDE01

> Maestro: what must i do under win?

Depends much on your setting. If you do have Qemm97 (or newer?) it shouldn't be a problem at all.
Generally rem out everything except the SET lines in autoexec.bat.
In config.sys rem out everything besides himem, emm386, lastdrive, files, buffers and dos.
Things that should especially be removed are:
cd drivers
mouse drivers
county specs
keyboard drivers
TSR virus programs
