Valper Okayyy it's working !

(sorry for double post but i can't delete it )

I put the Holiday's game, in the W3's folder.
Launch W3 with DOSBox and launch Holiday there !

Thank You so much for your help and your work (guide) !

Have a nice day,

Bye

Valper The good news is, it's possible to run a 16-bit version of Windows inside DOSBox - see this thread: http://www.abandonia.com/vbullet/showthread.php?t=27770[/quote]

I tried to follow your guide with NC (and the game Dolls). It's working.
But with Holiday Island, always same error.

I put W3 in C:\oldgames.

I must install W3 with DOSBox or just unpack it in the folder "oldgames" ?

And if i need install W3 by DOS, how ?
When i launch "windows.dat" with NC, i'm on desktop like : http://zupimages.net/up/14/47/z6f9.png
And DOSBox say : http://www.zupimages.net/up/14/47/15uy.png

Huuuu i'm lost

THX for taking the time for help me (and sorry for my english and my "bad level" computer)

DOS is not Windows.
DOSBox only provides a DOS environment, this game needs a 16-bit Windows environment.

Valper Hi, I downloaded the game but doesn't work on W7.

I tried use DOSbox, but when i mount the game and launch "holiday.exe", it tell me "This program is a Windows 16-bit executable."

I don't understand, DOSbox is a program for simulate a 16 bit, no ??

So it's me doing it wrong ?

doyo Wow! Some people are talking about one of my favs! Holiday Island xD

It's a pity, that the game ends after you've played (round about) 50 years. If someone has an idea to continue playing the game - this would be awesome!

Lovetohack I was searching the internet for this game 64-bit version and came up with this link:

http://www.boerse.bz/boerse/spiele-a...energizer.html

It's in German btw.

I couldn't access the download link at all. Can someone check if the game really do work on 64-bit w7? And if it is possible, can someone upload the file here?

I sat and waited for construction to be completed, I've been waiting two days now and the date inside the game has not changed. April 29. It seems it is stuck there and it will not budge? Is this normal? Does the game speed up sometime later? What should I do ?

Hi....check in the Game Options. There is a game speed bar to increase/decrease game speed. That should do the job!

Gameplay too slow
