Twotribes -> Question about the free games (11/24/2019 8:28:46 PM)

I never see activity there so asking here, how does one get the old games to work on the new systems?




MrsWargamer -> RE: Question about the free games (11/24/2019 11:48:44 PM)

Which old games?





RFalvo69 -> RE: Question about the free games (11/24/2019 11:51:48 PM)

And on which systems?




Zovs -> RE: Question about the free games (11/25/2019 1:43:54 AM)

Wild wild guess its "War In Russia: The Matrix Edition" and "Pacific War: The Matrix Edition".

As far as systems I'll take another SWAG, Windows 10?

Other than that I got nothing...

Yes to all that )




Gilmer -> RE: Question about the free games (11/25/2019 2:30:22 AM)

Both of those games, if I'm thinking right, have an executable that runs dosbox for you. I know that if you look in the comments, Pacwar has it implemented now.

Edit: Just checked. War in Russia does not have that implemented, but I'm pretty sure Pacwar does.

If you are in a windows environment, you'll need "dosbox" which will run the game for you.

Google search "dosbox". And then I'm sure the forums for those games help you in setting up dosbox.

Start with this one. It is the one I use for old Dos games, and I never had a reason to change it over the years:

Richard Dionne, who took part in making PW, actually is modding PW. This also includes a Dos-Box adaption for an easy game start.

The War Engine runs fine on Windows 10.




Gilmer -> RE: Question about the free games (11/26/2019 1:03:29 AM)

I have Windows 10 and I have had no issues with either on dosbox, regardless o0f how I get it to run. I used Dfendreloaded for Pacwar for a while, but after Rich Dionne got it working with an executable straight from the game directory, I use that.
