yep it's me again.I didn't want to revive that topic, because i have some updates, so in case anybody can help me:
Because i couldn't find the solution, i tried to go about it the newbie way.Like this:
I said okay the problem can be of two causes:
So i set out to replace every hardware component that could affect the game.
So i switched the video card with an older one, i fiddled with the RAM cartridges, formatted the HDD, switched between ESS 1868 and 1869, to see if the soundcard is the cause, AND i even went through changing my motherboard, along with the processor... so having checked all the components that could influence the game(the source(or whatever it is called in english), and the floppy couldn't affect the game me thinks)
So here i turn to you(again).Hence the error is memory related, i need a DOS tool that scans the memory for bad blocks, or something like this.It is wierd though that both the start up memory scan AND the more thorough himem scan DO NOT report any errors.
Also i have searched through the extensive DOS help, and found out that emm(or himem, can't remember) has a command to block programs access to certain memory blocks.Now sometime in the past i got an error saying something like this (the idiot me didn't bother the note down the error ):
Emm386 has found an error in memory block xxx, where xxx was a memory block value.If only i would have noted that value down, the problem would have been solved now :ranting:.Needless to say i tried to make that error come up again, but i failed.I even reinstalled DOS, in the hopes that the error would come again...
Also if you don't know what i'm talking about, check the original thread
