Try copying the “win95” folder from the windows 95 cd to your image and install the s3 trio 32/64 video drivers. Should be included. The resolution should go to 1280×1024.
What I did was pretty simple.
Get an svn version of dosbox (I used daum). Load it up and use the imgmake command to make a 2 gb hd img.
You can either mount both the cd image and hard drive image and copy the win95 folder to the hard drive image… or use something like ultra iso to copy files from the cd image to the hard drive image.
Restart dosbox and mount your hard drive image then switch to it and cd to the win95 folder and run setup.
Think it’s pretty easy from there.
Aoe 1 and 2 both run smooth on my friends s7.
Ty for the info chummer! Guess it’s time for a new controller. 🙂
Does the dual shock controller still have input lag after 30 seconds on android? If that’s been fixed I might check out xash3d again. There’s a few bandaid apps that fixed the problem bit they ate my battery like I eat cookies. Haven’t tried it since I still had a Samsung s5 tho.
It’s possible to run 98 in magic dosbox but it isn’t always stable. Restarting till it’s stable isn’t uncommon for me. Installation was a pain, went back and forth with parts of the installation on dosbox daum on my pc and in mdb on my phone but it worked. It’s even kinda tricky getting directx 9.0c to install. Think I had to use the 9.0b installer with the c files… been a while.
Archived a bunch of different clean installs of 95/98 with different versions of direct x to avoid future headaches…
Without knowing much about the fallout patches using win98 is about the only thing I can suggest.
I noticed you said you installed the diablo 2 expansion. Diablo 2 only seems to run 1.05 or lower. Think it’s a direct x issue. You would need windows xp to run the expansion (1.07 is the lowest xpac version). So you can only run vanilla diablo 2 in MDB.
No clarification needed here. Just saying I’d pay for a full featured experimental version. This is my favorite app.
Had more fun just making windows work on my own than playing the games I think. Made me feel like a teenage kid playing with my old computers again.
Ty for answering my drunken questions. I’d buy an experimental version… I like breaking things. 🙂
If you’re saying the cap is higher than 64, i’ve already tried it. Barring expert mode being broken. Free version is back to 64 mb limit as well.
Doesn’t make sense…
Seemed pretty easy for you to raise the cap in the free version. Fixed a huge number of issues ive had running a lot games under win9x. Like freezing when using a physical keyboard/mouse and general performance.
Again, stability on MY end is MY problem and I never had any issues with the 256 mb cap…
I have a kind request to “admin”, please add the 386MB RAM cap patch to the paid version, I would like the full app benefits with this version of Fallout2.
I can’t second this enough. Been using the free version to run a few games. Would be great to see in the full version as well.
Best app i’ve ever bought tho. Ty for all the hard work. I’d buy it again or donate (budget permitting) if I could.
After that you need to use something like ultra iso to copy game installs to your disk image. Lots of trial and error. With 95 it’s not worth trying to get iso image mounting support. It works great in 98lite tho and if you have it installed you can easily create another hard disk image and copy your images to it and mount them.
I’ve installed win95b pretty easy with a hard disk image I made in dosboxdaum.
If I remember right (it’s been a while) I started and made an image in dosboxdaum with
Imgmake win95.img -t hd -size 2048
Then mount a boot disk and the disk image and your win95 cd. Boot the boot disk and format the c drive with format c: /s. Then copy the win95 folder from the cd image to the hard disk image. Copy the disk image to your phone and cd to your win95 folder and run setup.
For me it only blue screened once during the whole process and was fine after a restart.
One of my win95 settings
imgmount c /sdcard/dosbox/win95-diablo.img -t hdd -size 512,63,128,520
boot -l c
Do you have special program which needs emulated network card?
