Re: Weird Mounting thing with DOSBox.

I LOVE DOSBox!!! I actually mounted just my E:\ drive, which is my games drive, and decided to stay away from mounting the C:\ drive. I somehow still have all 6 of my original 3 1/4" floppy disks of Windows 3.1. So one day I decided to install it through DOSBox using this 3 1/4" USB floppy drive tha...

Re: Just chat about old computers

YES!! Such great memories. My friend from high school, Alvin, well he used to have a Tandy 1000 also. He loves airplanes and all that, so he used to play a lot of Chuck Yeagers Flight School. I'd go over his place most times and he'd have computer magazines all over the place that I'd read while I ...

Just chat about old computers

Chat as in, I used to have a nice setup, DOS 6.22 OS that I upgraded to a Windows 98SE OS, 90 mhZ 486/DX2 with a Sound Blaster Pro sound card, not sure how much memory it had, but it was probably the best system I had at that time. Unfortunately I got rid of it years ago, after I had gotten my e-mac...

Re: Swat 3 help and new information

It's odd though, that you see these fixes and people say it works for them, and when you try the same things, it doesn't work. Not too odd, to me. Since we're not all using the same computer - there's so many other random elements that could be causing it to work for ONE person but not another. If ...

Re: Swat 3 help and new information

It will probably take delving into it at a deeper level than I am capable of doing. I agree. It's odd though, that you see these fixes and people say it works for them, and when you try the same things, it doesn't work. I was able to get in the game with the -nointro command, but the CD version is ...

Re: Swat 3 help and new information

Just an update with Swat 3, the GOG version doesn't work, and the original CD version also does not work. I have exhausted every single option there is to fix the movies not playing. I have written over the original movie clips with re-encoded clips, and they still will not play while the game is ru...

Re: Police Quest 3 CDROM?

You can hear fake Sonny Bonds' voice in SWAT 4. I don't know if he's supposed to be the same character or just an easter egg. He sounds nothing like how I'd imagine, though. Funny that you mention that. I just installed this last nite from CD, I would assume it'd be the same character since he says...

Re: Swat 3 help and new information

The only thing that I can think of why the DVD drive is being accessed when opening the Start Menu is if there is something that is pinned to the Start Menu that is a shortcut to something on a disc. If it is being accessed during game play, it is looking for or reading something on the disc. Wheth...

Re: Swat 3 help and new information

The BIN is the image file. The CUE file is nothing more than a text file that is a sort of table of contents. Consider it as instructions fro programs on how to read the actual image, the BIN. Note that a BIN is generally larger than other image files as it contains more information to make the ima...

Re: Swat 3 help and new information

Not sure. I don't really know another format would help. Nero has a format that more 3rd party can read. I'd be surprised if a bit perfect image like a BIN/CUE pair wouldn't work. Well I made that CUE file with CueTools, does it need a BIN file to go along with also in order to mount to the virtual...

Re: Swat 3 help and new information

So 3 things Collector. I am able to play the CD as an audio disk, when I put the physical disk in the drive, I get the option to play music, which it DOES play. Also, when I mount the .mdx file I made the other day, and mount it, I again, get the same options as if I were inserting the actual disk, ...

Re: Swat 3 help and new information

Does the disk actually have CDA tracks? Perhaps the game's configuration file is still pointing to your physical drive's assigned letter. Well, the most that I know, is that the CD is accessed for the music to play in game. I'm not sure if there are CDA tracks on the CD. I didn't see any files exte...

Okay. I created an image in Daemon Tools Lite, saved it as .mdx, but there is no audio in game.

Re: Swat 3 help and new information

A cue is just a text file that points to the location of data in the actual image file, such as a BIN. If you already have Daemon installed, just use the built in image tool. Well, I tried the option in Daemon, Make Disc Image, it's the same thing as, Make image from Disc, but it's only giving me 3...
