Anyone know how the sequel compares to the original?
well a review i read said that it isnt as good as the original, so im giving it a miss - even though its probably "okay"[/b][/quote]


I tried to play the second part years ago. It came with a gamers magazine and read much about its predecessor. So I thought that it must be just good.
But theren´t much rather than Giger graphics. Don´t understand me wrong. Giger is great. But if I want to have a look on Giger´s art I Just would have a look at artbooks or so. Didn´t need a game for that. Most of all it was terrible that there wasn´t a real good plot of the game. It was just boring.
Think all that is the reason why I never tried the first part and probably never will...

@wanderer: If you want to mount your local c drive Type:

mount c c:

You may add a path like this:

mount c c:\games etc.,etc.....

Think there is a complete help thread on this topic in this forum. Just have a look

Dear gamers

I'm trying to follow the walkthrough instructions but strangely I can't find the crow-bar inside the car boot in the garage after I done all the actions. Perhaps I could repeat the actions in the right sequence?
I have also some troubles with DosBox!! How can I start a game using it? I try to follow the basic instructions to mount the driver but I can't do it properly!!!
Thanks for you help!!!

Take it easy!

If the trunk of the car is open, you have to look at it again. Mike will see a crowbar. After that you can pick it up.

I can't get Darkseed to recognize my mouse. All other Dos Apps work with my mouse.

I'm using DosBox 6.3 - has anyone else had this problem?

Mouse works fine for me. Did you set the mouse at the beginning of the game where you can choose mouse/keyboard/joystick control?

I did, & I used F10 for a manual mouse lock.

I think there might be a problem with the PS/2 mouse emulation. I know there's a way to switch to a generic mouse driver, but I can't figure out how to do it.

DosBox says just run "Mouse.Exe", & if someone can help me with that I'd appreciate it.

It ran for me with both PS/2 and USB mouse... so I can't help you there
Does your mouse work with other games in DOSBox? Or perhaps you should set 'autolock=true' in DOSBox.conf ??? Good luck!

%COMSPEC% /C .\DS.BAT

Then, you must make sure that you mount the drive that is referenced by
your %COMSPEC% variable. Just type SET at the DOS prompt to verify.

Can someone explain this in more detail?

When I set my Comspec to DS.Bat - DosBox tells me I haven't set any enviornment variables & I STILL get the green screen when Tos.exe loads

hi ,


something strange happened, i played the game until the end with dosbox, without having any problem. i started it again recently, and just after the first nightmare ( at the very beginning) the screen was covered with "snow" - white numerous lines. and it didn t go any further. no enter or space changed anything. now i m wondering if it is a bad joke from windows xp or the copy protection.but still why just now?

if anyone has an clue, i will be thankfull


cheers

Good and atmospheric game, but time limit is too short.

Without H.R. Giger there would be no Darkseed.
A great game.
