Angry Doesnt work!

It simply does not work!

It crashes on the mission briefing screens either with:

a) A "missing file" error or
b) corrupt graphics and music going all funny.

Just to check them off the list of suspects
- Have you tried re-dowloading it? It could be a corrupt download.
- Have you tried different control configurations?

Review and download (if available)
I think I was in junior high when I first played this, shortly after upgrading from my Tandy 2000HX. I had the bright idea to start comparing the saved game files before and after completing a mission with different levels of success (and medals). Found I could use a hex editor to give myself medals after that. That was a whole new dimension to the 'game' that I remember most about Gunship 2000. The helicopter stuff was cool too.

Sorry to bump up an old thread - but it must be this particular game "install" that is corrupt. No amount of re-downloading will fix it. I've tried the version of GS2000 hosted on another site, "MyAbandonware.com", and that too crashes when trying to access the briefing screen. It appears something inherent in all copies of GS2000 on all sites hosting it!
I cannot see how "different control configurations" would make any difference at all.

So, if it's only just me - and the guy have trouble 2 years ago - that can't run it then can those you that can run it reveal the secret?

PS/ Please also get rid of "reCAPTCHA" - it is screwing up the ability to post without the rigmarole of registering!

Let's see...

Downloaded the game from Abandonia, extracted the archive in my DOSBox C-drive, started the game and...

everything seems to be fine. I can access the briefing and start a mission.

I'm using DOSBox 0.74 with the default configuration.

It is also screwing up the ability of spambots to FLOOD the forums with hundreds of ads for viagra, cheap loans, porn and shoes a day.
That's kind of the REASON we had to install it in the first place and there is no way in hell it's going away as long as spambots exist.

That's what a bot would say to us, if it could post

Talking BuyViagra!

My DosBox is the old 0.70. Maybe thats why GS2000 isn't happy. I'll try 0.74.

BTW I am indeed an advance spambot designed to use advanced AI to fool forums into thinking I'm human, and attempt to get them to remove ReCaptcha by just asking them.

Damn you for not falling for it!!!!

Now whose for some little blue tablets?
