Smiling Spectre I have no idea, sorry. As I said above, I installed original under 3.1, then replaced .exe with patched one, and then simply ran it under Win10 x64.

Is it worse under Win98? Strange then.

Well turning it into 32 Bit make it also Crash on Windows 98 as well?

Would it work on Windows XP(Even thru a Emulator)?

Ah, one quirk: for me, Daum DOSBox build was the best for Win3.1.
I tried using that and Yes it worked fine with the Original GPM 2 but when Updated I got this Error:



What does that Mean as I don't know

I wouldn't recommend DOSBox Daum to any new users. It hasn't been updated since 2015 and I think the developer has completely stopped supporting it. I think there were also some issues with the last release (broken features, broken support for several games).


For Windows 3.x, the official DOSBox build is good enough. If you want some extra features, you can try DOSBox ECE, DOSBox-x or DOSBox Staging.

Ah, wait, I can use No-CD. Works. Without any problems. On the Win10 x64. (After I installed the game under DOSBox/Win3.1, of course).
I have tried putting Win 3.1 on Dosbox but I just get Errors when I load it up and try and use Programs
