I've been playing a lot of old games on vmware player lately. I've got a windows 98 vm that I'm trying to play Microsoft's Fury 3 on. Fury 3 is a windows 95 game. The installation went smoothly and the game launches but it doesn't play right.
As soon as I start playing everything works as normal for about 3 seconds, then it will freeze for a second and then pick back up again. It will repeat this over and over untill I lose my patience. It's as if there was some kind of lag between my hardware and the game. Everything renders properly but the game will constantly freeze up whenever I try to move around, or fire my weapons. It seems to me that the more graphical elements appear, the more the game has a harder time processing them.
Is my resolution too high?
Is my processor too fast?
Is it because this game was made for windows 95?
It's so unusual for it to behave like this. I have no idea why it won't just work.
some insight would be appreciated
Plz and thx,
