help with the good old days - 01-28-2007 , 09:50 PM


does anyone know how i can play my old games on a new comp? i tried to put in Command and Conquer: Red Alert a few days ago on my XP and i got an error message (though i don't remeber what it said lol). i heard about compatibility mode, but i also heard that it's pretty much hit or miss. specifically, i'd like to play red alert, mechwarrior4, and maybe some good old pod if i can find it.

If you have any DOS games, you could run them with DOSbox, an emulator for XP (and other x86 platforms).

Yeah, you need to change a colour setting.

Can't give you a solution yet, as it's like, 12:23 AM and I have school in the morning, so I'll answer ASAP.

I don't know if this is exactly what you want, but I found two different methods that people have found to get it to work.

Hope that helps. :)
