Hello guys.


The name of the game is Alien logic, used to play it alot when i was younger, and i just found the CD again. and i wanted to start playin it...problem is that its a dos based game, says that it will work with windows 95.



The current platform that im working with is Windows XP Professioanl sp2.


I did try the compatability option in another post. However either im not doing it right, or it doesnt work. (applied it, clicked the icon, same thing happens as if i didnt change anything)

If you need anymore awnsers, let me know.


Thanks for your help.

I don't really know how to help you but I thought I could post this suggestion. Do you still have an old computer lying around somewhere or at worst you can pick up an old computer for like 20$ that could run that game.

I play this game, but I boot from a windows 98 rescue/boot disk, which works fine. (I think I had to edit the autoexec.bat file, its a long time since I made it)
May I suggest you patch the game to 1.1 before playing, cos your saved game wont work if you find you need the patch half way thru.

I don't know if it'll work or not, but there is another thread similar to this one and this is the suggestion given.

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/58109/dos-games/

You will need a special program to slow down your computer to play dos games. With modern pc`s there too fast and if you install a dos game you will notice they run extremly quickly. There are some programs to fix this problem.

Dosbox(download for which ever OS you use such as windows linux etc):

you can try an emulator like DosBox. This will boot up a virtual Dos computer in WinXP and allow you to map folders off your HD to make virtual HDs for your Dos programs. It doesn't take too much know how to set it up and there are a lot of good front ends for it to simplify setup. I have not used it in a while so I can't explain in more detail, but there should be help files and a forum to read through.

Plus it has features to scale back your processor clock so the game doesn't look like its moving in fast forward!
