i am trying to play an old game on a new laptop. this game used to run ok on windows xp on my last pc, but my new laptop has vista and it wouldnt run. i reloaded with xp and the game loaded but colours were funny like this: click here so now tried a new partition formatted in fat32, and using a win98 boot cd i can load the game independent of windows but i still get the funny colours. is this something to do with the graphics card on the laptop? i thought it might be something in the bios but theres nothing much i can change in there. hope someone knows the answer, thanks!
thanks for that idea, i've tried that and for some reason the game runs really slow. i've googled this problem as well and it seems like others have had the slow running problem too. the game is championship manager season 97/98. i dont know a lot about dosbox to change settings but on the forums others have tried things no to avail. thats why i thought going back to basics with a new partition, without windows, might help! nothing's ever easy!
wow that works.. adding the game with the wizard. although its still slightly slower than it was when it worked in xp. in the wizard i set cpu to maximum (3d games-even though its not) and also checked the extra memory box. is there anything else i can do?
