Front page sports baseball pro 98

Postby chrls83 » Sun Dec 04, 2016 3:17 pm

I have front page sports baseball pro 98 and a windows 10 OS. I used the new installer you made for a 64 bit system. Plus updated with the newest patch. I could get the game to run, create a new association and even play a game. But as soon as I want to simulate a game it crashes and I get a Microsoft c++ runtime library error. I've also tried a clean boot by disabling other apps. Not sure why it crashes everyt time when trying to simulate. Has anyone had this issue before or does anyone have any ideas for a fix?

This installer has not been extensively tested, but I did not experience the issue on Win7. What is the exact error message?

When I click on a game in the season to simulate it starts like its going to work then this picture happens every time. Both fast simulate and regular simulate.

So I went to the site and already had the latest installed. But I uninstalled then reinstalled them again. But I am getting the same error.

Trying it in Virtual Box now, tried Win 95 that was a no go. Installing Win 98 now hopefully it works on that OS.

Success! So the install in Virtual Box Windows 98 (Version 2) works but is a little choppy because the copy of Win 98 I downloaded does not have 256 colors display. Only goes up to 16 colors. Well its better than nothing. I will try this out and maybe tomorrow I will try to find another copy of Win 98 with more than 16 colors display. I will update if I get it to work better.

Almost forgot, here is the you tube video I went to for using Virtual Box. This guy went through step by step. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=23ArT-u06v8, He has all of the downloads on this page with everything you need. They are all in the description.

You may want to find another copy of WIN98 though this one is rough because of the 16 colors display lol.

Update on using Virtual Box: Game works with the you tube video shared above. But the Graphics Adapter needs to be updated because the game runs like crap without 256 color mode. I used this site here for updating it. http://bearwindows.zcm.com.au/vbe9x.htm
What I did was downloaded the drivers where it says Windows 9x clones. The question marks to the right are the links. After downloading I burned to a CD and then used the wizards in Windows 98 in the Virtual Box to download the drivers. To find the wizard go to Control panel in the Virtual Machine Win98 you installed, then display, then Settings tab, then Advanced, then to Adapter. You have to change the adapter, use the wizard to find the CD you burned them to and install the driver. Seems like a lot to do but this was the way I got it to work really well. Hope this helps.
