Just tried Half-Life with my GOTY copy, both on virtual box and magic dosbox. Same result. It doesn’t recognise a resolution lower than 640×480. The best I could do was to add “-window -w 320 -h 200” to the shortcut properties. But it seems to be prone to crashing, and the fullscreen version won’t stretch out the image to fit the screen.
I found others talking about the resolution as well; where they too remember setting it to 320×200 back in the day, and how they couldn’t now. So I’m not going crazy or anything. Those resolutions are just lost to us, though I’m not sure why.
I did find a video, where someone found some sort of experimental port of Half-Life for android:
Thought I’ve not tried it yet.
100% sure. I distinctly remember using the lowest resolution, and lowering the screen size down just to play. Same with Half-Life, no way I could get such a high resolution. At most, I would try 512×384. You mean to say it’s all some sort of false memory? No… I’m pretty sure I got Quake working at a 320×200 in magic dosbox running win95. That too I would use the lowest resolution and turn down the screen size back in the day.
Been trying to get Jedi Knight Dark Forces 2 working.
It boots up, and start a game, but…. I can’t lower the resolution.
I distinctly remember (ages ago) setting it to 320×200 or 320×240 in software mode, because I didn’t have a video card at the time. Yet it doesn’t have those lower resolutions, it only has 640×400, 640×480, 800×600.
I changed the type of monitor and noticed that some higher resolutions unlock for DF 2. Perhaps the monitor type has something to do with it?
Any ideas? Would be appreciated.
