View Full Version : Crusader: No Regret + Remorse

are there any alternatives to running it in dosbox as even when i try to speed it up with frameskip and increased cpu cycles, it runs too slow and i try in a pure dos install, when i get in game, it crashes :wall: it uses the ultima 8 engine which means it should technically run through pentgram but it won't work that way either. i have an 850mhz duron, 384mb of ram and windows xp pro. CAN SOMEONE HELP?????

nope sorry

the gaming world was very delighted when dosbox was able to run these games as it 's practicly impossible to run them otherwise. (or you have to build an old dos pc)

if you have enough disk available one option would be to make special disk partition (let's say 100 MB big) and install dos on it. then when you boot your computer you boot it with a dos boot disk that takes you to your dos partition and voila! you have computer optimised for dos games.

that is if your bios doesn't screw up ems support
and the crusader games don't work on very fast systems as well I recall.
you might wanna try to get a p100 or so :)

Or get a very fast system and run it through DOSBox but Data's option is more friendly on your wallet.

i think i'll wait until pentagram fully supports it as then, it will run optimized. i know it has some support for it as i have seen the screenshots on the pentagram site showing it running on pentagram.

what does bios have to do with Disk operating system?

i have windows98, dos and linux installed on my computer. no problem with bios.
my brother has win2000 and linux - no problem with bios.

some bioses put code at places where the ems manager want to place pageframe
as that is not possible (due to code therre) the ems manager can not provide any ems memory
