hay guys ive got a fairly new laptop with winXP and recently downloaded a freeware/shareware game off the internet but it tends to jerk and flicker allot and id like to know how do i fix it.
(PS its really anoying)
Your Game Might be glitching due to a number of reasons:
If you havnt already, Press [ALT]+[ENTER] to run the game in full screen.
If its a 256 colour game, goto properties, compatibility, 256 colours
You can also try running the game in compatibility mode for win95 and changing the resolution to 640x480 (under the same tab)
XP's max memory might not be enough to support your DOS game (Weird, huh?), If all of the above dont work try the following
goto \WINDOWS\System32; copy the files autoexec.nt & config.nt to the folder where your game is located. edit the files you just copied and add the line
anywhere after the line
in both files- if one of those .nt files doesnt have the dos=high, umb line, dont add emm=ram in that particular file
goto your the properties of your game, advanced, and enter the full paths for config.nt and autoexec.nt that you just edited.
