While waiting for the release of AA:HttR I dusted off an old (1993)Atomic Game V for Victory series that dealt with the same battle. Anyone play it? In any event this old DOS based game claims that my Dell with 256 megs of Ram has insufficient memory to run:confused: Anyone know how to tweak Windows XP to get this game to run?

Thanks in advance:)

You might ask the question over at Eric Young: Squad Assault. I think he was one of the designers on on the V for Victory series.

But I tried to get an answer to the same question some time ago and had no luck.

Some one would probably need to create an emulator or something.

Memory serves, they used a memory extender. Make a dos boot disk and have fun playing, the whole series is available for free now. Might have problems with finding a dos USB mouse driver though.

Might be tough getting it to run on XP or 2000. I'd consider getting a copy of Win98 or 95 and dual booting, running the old Atomic games under 98.

For all of the W@W series goto [url]www.the-underdogs.org[/url]

an old post i know, but for anyone who wants to play any old dos game,or any tbh, i can help you you want the info just ask.

for the thread starter HitMan52, the answer is a dosbox program, i use dosbox game launcher v0.77 which is a standard dos box program with a nice gui, front end, easy to setup and it's free, nearly all games of that age have been released as abandonware so can be got for free, some great titles to play if you like.

i own a i7 4960X with 16gb of ram, 2x256gb solid state drives with 4 tb of backup on WD raptors running windows 8.1 pro 64bit....

the v for victory series had 4 games, i own the lot,
V for Victory: D-Day Utah Beach (1991)
V for Victory: Gold Juno Sword (1992)
V for Victory: Market Garden (1993)
V for Victory: Velikiye Luki (1993)

or from the same makers, also owned,

World at War: Operation Crusader (1994)

plus many many others, never beat market garden tbh, a great game and challenge for it's day and for me it was the best in the series, but then again i do like that battle, played it to death on most formats over many years.

Airborne Assault: Red Devils Over Arnhem was good, but if you can find Arnhem is a first entry in R. T. Smith's World War II trilogy, including Desert Rats and Vulcan it's well worth the search and time.

for the time the games are very good, not as good looking as todays which are far larger in size and budget, as many only had a few working on them, but i try and buy as many as i can find as i play and collect all wargames, far too many boxes in the loft now days :)

have fun, and keep playing (wargames and sims forever)
