I just got a brand spankin new 486 in the mail (well maybe not so new) and Im trying to get my SCI games to run on it. Its been forever since Ive had a computer like this, and when I did have one I was a kid (8-12 yrs old) so I didnt know all that much about tweaking it. |
I was wondering if anyone has any tips for getting a mouse to work and for getting SCI games to run. I need to free up between 15000 and 5000 bytes to run the games I want. The system has 8mb of ram on it, so I know theres plenty of it. I just dont remember the lines to change / add in the config.sys and/or autoexec.bat .
If anyone has any tips or any links to sites with tips I would be grateful.
You will need to load mouse drivers. These are available either off the internet, or should be on a disk somewhere. Once the mouse drivers are loaded (You should put a "MOUSEDRIVER.EXE" line in your autoexec.bat), tell the setup program to use the mouse.|
there are some mouse drivers that take almost no memory at all - and works great, i had a special driver that came with the simcity game. it was very good :)|
take away unnecessary things to load in config/autoexec. if it's a later dos version try to use the memmaker.exe program - sometimes it made wonders
good luck :)

WOOOHOOOO! Thanks guys! I got myself a mouse driver off the internet that works. The memory program really really did the trick (I have DOS 6.22). So far all my old games that Ive tested are running!|
Now my only problem is that I lost my QFG 2 3.5' Disk 9. Would it be wrong to ask someone to email me the files on the disk since I can't buy it in stores? Or is that something that would be okay to do? Im totally against software pirating so I dont want to do it if its wrong.
Thanks again for your help.
