You don't need both VDMS and DOSBox at the same time - VDMS is for running in XP and usually solves sound issues. Have you tried adjusting the vertical position on your monitor?

Im not sure. But possibly theres a setup.exe for settlers2 somwhere in its folder. Maybe you could choose there another option for your graphics issue...?!

Uhm, did you try to run it without dosbox/vdm?

EDIT: Ok. Seems we were posting at the same tim :bye:
