Greetings, is there anyway I can change the resolution of Apoc? When I play it after a while it does something to my monitor and makes it flick on and off constantly, probably something to do with the dodgy refresh rate the original res uses.
I'm just running it in XP, with vdm sound - no dosbox or anything like that.
Can I run it in a window or anything? I tried windowed mode in the properties but it didnt work.


Does Apoc work in dosbox? Is that my only option? :(

Thanks.

I get this issue on my Laptop during Tactical games.
Just save the game
go back to city scape
load the game
and it USUALLY fixes it.
I just hope you dont get a Seizure if it doesnt.

Yes and yes. In some cases it (running Apoc in dosbox) requires making a disk image.

Sorrow, thats not the only option.. Sigh.
Saving and reloading fixes this problem Very easily.
