I once had the same problem with spmbt. Turns out when I configured the shortcut I didn't disable the screensaver and it locked up the game. You've really got to follow the directions closely for the beast to work!

I did do that, too. And the game works just great when playing a scenario. It just crashes whenever I try to play a campaign, in just the manner I described... or at least it crashes onl occasionally in scenarios, but that happened often before in SPWaW, too...

For old DOS based games on a modern system, try using DOSBOS.

This can be found at http://dosbox.sourceforge.net/news.php?show_news=1

I don`t use it for SPMBT (I`ve got windows`98) but I use it to play some older dos games with very little trouble. I found it difficult to use until I discovered the front-ends that some other people have done.

The games list found on the site list SP2, SP1 and SPMBT as "playable".

What sort of video card do you own?

I DO own a GeForce2 MX here, but as said, it runs the scenarios, it just crashes on the campaigns. I don't see how that is related to the videocard then? At least it doesn't sound very reasonable to me...

I*ll give that DOSBOS thing a try... and I guess I'll start digging for some old video card... just to see..

The game simply doesnt like Geforce 2 MX cards
Have you played through an entire scenario? How about a quick battle?

Played several scenarios without much trouble, it crashed at times there, but that is rather common with SPWaW here, as well, after a few scenarios. Didn't try QuickBattle. Alas, I founf domeone giving away a Matroxm3D card for nothing... so, guess I'll just go and get that, so that it's finally possible to enjoy these games... hope so at least...

Remember, you are only getting it to run a couple of old wargames eh. So don't fret over whether it's a waste of space paperweight.

I plan to have mine sit on the floor under the desk, and serve as a foot rest too.


now why didn't i think o'that!

that's a good idea too. I still have several older machines that i use for old games that just don't like to run under even win95. I still even play panzer strike on the commodore 64.. just to relive old days i suspect.
