I tried running dosbox on windows xp and i'm still having problems with the graphics. It's fine in the beginning but the problem occurs when i start playing the game....can anyone help me?

p.s. I LOVE star control 2

When you start playing the game, what happens there? Is the music / sound still there? Or it's more like the game hangs up?
Also try to experiment with the output-option in Dosbox.conf. It changes the graphics encoding and can be found at the very beginning of the file.

No idea how old this thread is but nm ;-)
Im having the same problem.
Sound works nicely but the graphics gets all screwed up.
It always bugs right away when I try to watch the intro movie.
I usualy get good graphics when I skip the intro and go straight to the "name the star" thingy.
It stays good untill I meet the ur-quan then its fubared again.
Can almost seem like it goes down to 16 colors or something.
Its close to impossible to read the dialague.
And yes I have tried to start the game with the /g:bios command.
And the reason I dont use the remake is that I didnt know it existed and I cant find it.

any help will be mutch appriciated ;-)


yeah And Im running DOSBox on WinXP to.

Try this version instead.

Ur-Quan Masters

The intro and outro isn't included though. You have to wait for version 0.4 before that's implemented. It should be finished real soon.

Check out this thread in this same forum "Dosbox Graphics Issues, Palette switches in various games". I had similar issues in some other games, and BeefOnTheBone suggested minimizing and reexpanding the DOSBox window (I alt-tabbed out and back in) to regain the palette focus, and that worked great!!

Hope this helps!

Wow thanks for the mod link. I'm already into playing the original for a week or two but this looks worth the restart.

Hell! Voice is worth it alone.
