Hi guys

Have just refound my all time fave game - Might & Magic 3. Problem is it's age. I loaded it onto my computer and set the compatibility to Win95, but this game precedes Win95. It runs very slow and sluggish. What can I do to make it run properly like it used to??

(Moderator edit and note: moved post to more appropriate forum and added Topic Description. jgw)

Welcome to bleepingcomputer!

I'm not too familiar with that game, but you may need a DOS emulator to run it. DOSBOX is a great tool for this!

Try opening it in command.com command line. It's similar to the cmd.exe command line, but it's better for old DOS games. You can access it by going to Start>Run then typing "command.com." If it still runs slow, download DOSBOX like Sterling14 suggested.
