i have downloaded 2 versions(one from hotu and one from elsewhere)powerslave has a dos and a win 95 executable and the other version(exhumed, which is almost exactly the same) has only a dos executable. when i run either dos executable just from plain windows xp/vdmsound it bombs out in game often and the windows 95 executable in powerslave just crashes with or without compatability applied. when i try either dos executable in dosbox, dosbox just quits on me as well. i have tried both dos versions with and without sound and that only delays the bombing out in game. can anyone help me??

What do you mean by "bombs out"?

I fear I can't help you JJXB until you manage to give me an error message. I don't have any of those two games either so I can't try them out.

Sometimes games do give out error messages but you don't have time to read them because the window get closed immediatly. But you should definitly see them in DOSBox...
