    Wolf3D won't start..

    Post by PicNic on Tue Nov 03, 2009 12:49 am

    When I open the exe it doesn't start, it keeps on wait a moment or something like that, with the memory bars left etc.. Does someone know how to fix this? I'm on XP.

    You could see if it works with DOSBox.

    I don't like dosbox, too complicated, I'd rather have a simple program

    No, not unless you are playing a DOS computer game like The 7th Guest or The 11th Hour that must always be played with the CD in the drive. If you're playing a game like that, then contact me and I'll tell you what to type in.

    Also, if you can't drag exe onto dosbox, (in library) you also need to mount.

    I would ask a question on the DOSBox Forums at http://vogons.zetafleet.com/index.php?c=7 if I were you. I don't know how else to help you.
