ohh nice (and yea maybe see if that guy will let u in on the secret, i dont use ebay.. ever.. its like crack so i stay away)


right from the dosbox site

Darkseed II is under Win 3.11 perfekly running. The Cutscrens playing very good, but you must install a "minimal" game and make an CD Image from Hard Disk Drive.Please Note, you must the Screen Resolulotion by 640x480 by 256 Colors under Win 3.11! Have Fun ;-)

someone said also there is quicktime installers u need
as well as a "WING app"
but this works in all windows in dosbox, provided you can run the 3.11 installer

I noticed the wing files are on my disk. A lot of work to install another prog, plus needing win 3.11, which oddly, still have combined all diskettes on an old cd. Way back when I still had an old system, win 3.11 was installed in just a few seconds. Unless I can get the game to install without extra progs, I'll probably just forget about. Strange there's such a big install hassle from no problems with DS1, to something most fowl with DS2.

Actually DS2 does run in my 32 bit XP, but at about half screen size due to not being able to run it at 640x480 256 color 8 bit. The game says it may not work properly, I just selected to continue anyway.

Before when I thought it didn't complete installing before freezing, it actually did install then the screen would freeze before the screens could close. So I closed them and ran the game. Game menu default is 320x200, so I set it to 640x480 for a bigger game screen, but it only fills about half the monitor. Otherwise, it seems to do just fine. It truly is a windows game and dosbox will not run it. So go figure, how many gamers could not do what I have done. Maybe it's a rare occurrence for my xp 32 bit  ::)

just set the desktop res to 640x480, but if its in dosbox it should be full screen !
DOS BOX WILL RUN THE GAME
sigh, if you say it wont you just arent well versed in how to use it, and install or mount os's or drives to it

and try the compat mode if you just have 32bit xp, with what i posted from dosbox page.. sheesh google DS2 WIN7 or WIN xp  (no one on xp has problems) only os's higher than xp

as for my disc, idk, I dont see any wing files, but there is odd stuff on there, mine is slightly larger too not by much,

id love to get the game to work but sadly i think im screwed to vmware being on 64 bit win7

*as for your comment please try not to act so.,. idk conceded. "go figure? how many gamers could not do what i have done?"  huhhh

wtf mate really... each time someone helps you, you either demean it, belittle it or say you did it with no help,
urmm i shot you the res posts from the damned dosbox page, go figure, yea all you man lol
at least im glad you got it running.  but google the word HUMBLE .. try that out for a bit

as for xp 32 bit,  the game just runs FINE on that no need to do anything much at all, other than what I posted already,

sigh, thought u were on that win 7 os..

anyway, i think im done trying with ya garr, i love ya man but really,  to answer that lame question
MANY MANY gamers can get it working  and 90-100% on win XP can.. sigh

sooooo speecial want a brownie badge? oooo brownies ,.. nows im hungry

if you can figure out how to get it to run on win7 64 bit, without vmware, THEN id let ye slide on that post quote you made that seems just so arrogant..
some days i wish forums had thumbs down  shrug
but that would be a messy mess

dont leave man..
just due to me,

try to let us both learn from each other

I need to just stop trying to help you and others that obviously dont want help and think they do everything on their own

again,  with xp 32 bit, that game just installed fine on an old pc,  cd inserted installed no problems just used compat mode..

soo no great feat there to have made that conceded comment mate,
try to become humble, ill try to not post such, lame things in reply.
but leave? well I did for a few days, but dont leave forever due to my lame arse man.. :)

Wha....? this must be an all purpose thread!

Found out that The Neverhood runs beautifully in scummvm and win 7 64 bit. The music still cracks me up after many years since the game came out.

It actually runs better by just using the setup95 installer. It gives you the Claymation save and load screens which I think is way cooler. You can copy all files from the disk data folder and paste them into the game directory for better play. The program will complain about no disk, just click continue a couple of times, or just leave disk in drive.

Oh... I meant CD. Yea, looking forward to NH2. Did you know there is a run cheat?

Hit Enter, you won't see anything
just type fastforward
hit Enter
Klaymen now runs. to turn it off, repeat the above process.

..............
Something weird playing this game after years... originally playing NH, in the scene where Klaymen pulls the pin to join the world halves, the guy in his tower was outside and sweating bullets, Klaymen drums his fingers on the pin, then pulls it.

Now playing the game, it just shows the guy inside his tower looking out the window, Klaymen drums his fingers, then pulls the pin.

I guess my cd version is the one I've always owned, or maybe I originally played the game from a diskette install or something else. I just can't remember.

......
Also tried Clandestiny install and it runs on w7 64 bit better than it did on w95. Now I'm wondering how to run it without original disks (2) in the drive.

i oddly have a sata floppy external internal with usb for external and sata for internal, but its odd

sneaker ware we used to call those games
walk to one place with a disk, walk back, rinse repeat!

Is a remake of this happening? I assume that'd be about getting the broken bits working on a modern machine.
