Now for the drama.
My brother gave me Apoc as a present, but it turns out the game is nowhere near as windows compatible as the box makes it out to be . This eventually led me to this board and as a result I've been spending the last 2 hours reading the tons of threads about getting the game to run on Win XP.
However...it still won't work ::
All the stuff should be allright, I got all the files/buffers/sound stuff set correctly in VDMS and I installed the SVGA fixes. I even installed the CD crack just for the heck of it, even though I have a CD.
The problem is that my game just shows a blackscreen for 2 seconds and then just quits. Be it back to windows, back to the win dosbox or back to the VDMS dosbox. I haven't seen this problem in any of the threads I've read yet. I often see people reporting black screens and all that, but their black screens just stay there. My black screen just quits itself after a few seconds and returns to whatever state it was in previously(dos/windows/vdms).
Lastly, I do use a Radeon 9700 Pro, I'm not sure if this can be causing the trouble, but I think I read that somewhere.
Just one word left to say now I guess: HELP! :crying:
Allright, I just stumbled upon this thread which is starting to make me think the copy of Apoc I have is faulty, since the CD I have is still a burned one, made by my brother.
I'll try the downloaded version asap, but any suggestions are still welcome
