Ultimate Soccer Manager 98

Postby Al33 » Tue Apr 21, 2015 12:17 pm

Hey Guys,

I just recently installed and played the game for several seasons but now it will always split the screen akwardly and unplayable.
I have played around with the compatibility modes and that had worked before but not anymore, I dond't know what caused this.
I'm running Win7 64bit and it had worked before under Win98 compability mode.

Does anyone have a fix for this on an advice?

Would be great if Sierra could patch the game to be playable under modern OS's.

Not really familiar with this one. It is not that common here. There is a pathc for the game on the main site. Did you try that one? http://sierrahelp.com/Patches-Updates/P ... dates.html

Yes I've tried that one as well. This splitscreen bug is actually quite common, I just hope someone here might has a trick.

I am afraid that I don't have the game to try to find what the problem is. Perhaps someone that is familiar with the game will answer.

Don't have the game either, but I did some digging:
http://www.dosgames.com/forum/post-88400.html

Reveals: On some forums (Vogons....) it's stated it will only work in XPsp1, not in XPsp2. And no patches.

https://www.digitalworldz.co.uk/pc-prob ... creen.html
Reveals: it works ok in safe mode

Also had an additional fix: https://www.digitalworldz.co.uk/pc-prob ... ost1364655
But the original poster says it worked for a limited time; but works fine in safe mode still.

So... I guess, going into safe mode to play the game is at least an option...

Thanks for the research you've done.

I tried to play it in safe mode but there it's asking for the CD and I couldn't find a way to use the CD Image in Safe Mode.

I have also already tried the application compatibility method but with no success =(

What about trying an emulator?
