Ok here is my problem.But first of all I don't use dosbox cuz my PC isn't that fast.

So the first game is The incredible Machine 2.Was perfect till today when I tried to run it there is a message that says "insufisant extended memory" or something like that(but it is with memory)

The second is called The Horde I tried it under DosBox but the screen restart, then I tried out under DOS-mode - Window$ is restarting.
If you have any sugestions please tell me

About Incredible Machine 2 - I guess you need to enable EMS in dosbox.conf. Find this line:
"[dos]
# xms -- Enable XMS support.
# ems -- Enable EMS support.
"
and modify this one line under it that it looks like this: "ems=true"
If it won't help, add more memory. Look for this line:
"[dosbox]"
and modify this line under it:
"memsize=64" to have more memory (in MB).

About The Horde, I guess as even Windows restarts, it must be corrupted / damaged. Try to download it again.

the horde is tricky under dosbox.

you can get it running by setting the cpu cycles too high for your machine to handle.

Well, I don't know what your problem with DosBox is, but it's one of the best suitable programs for the old games.

ONLY P800??? Well, that's pretty fast and you should use DosBox! k:

And while we are talking about EMS support, how can I turn it off in DosBox?
