Good evening gentlemen.

I seem to be having a problem with DOS-BOX and running X-com Apocolypse. I mount the C drive and make it to the directory, as normal. But when I run the program, DOS box displays the copy-right information as normal then... stops. It does not continue on to the game, it just sits there with X-coms copyright information under all of my previous commands.

I am currently using a 2 GHz AMD Athlon 2400,
768 MB of ram
and a GeForce FX 5200

Can anyone help?

Have you tried increasing the cycles?

I suggest you use VDMSound anyway, it's much better for Apocalypse.

I have already tried increasing the cycles, but it does nothing.

I'll give VDMsound a shot. Thank you for the help!

Update!

I have attempted to run VDMsound with Xcom, but still don't get any farther then Apoc's version and copyright information. I decided to see if it would work with no sound, and shut off the sound in X coms settings (which seems to work in plain ol XP, oddly). I tried running Xcom in XP, Doxbox, and VDM, and each time I got a black screen after the copyright, and still no game.

Any suggestions?
