My Dell machine has certain incompatibilities when using Dosbox.

No matter the modification in the Dosbox configuration file, and/or other PC settings, i've had lag issues, running issues, random and unexplainable crashes, and the mouse movement is diabolical to the point it deems the game unplayable. I have tried a lot of supposed solutions, ones which were successful to others, but not for myself.

Funny thing is, Blood is the only stable game when it comes to Dosbox, anything else just doesn't work and it's just really irritating. I've gone through a clean install back in December, but it reproduced the same technical problems as said above. This is why Dosbox to me, sucks.

I wouldn't recommend giving me possible solutions, i have great doubts in Dosbox. Also regarding to OUWB, yeah, probably? I'm not entirely sure how it's packaged. I only have the original Blood at the ready... And i say that lightly.

Edit: When i say 'clean install' i'm referring to my system, rather than Dosbox or Blood.

Good points: DOSbox is configured perfectly where cutscenes and CD music play. Game runs great, totally worth it if you want to play BLOOD like you used to.
Bad points: Since my video card no longer supports 800x600 fullscreen (No, I don't know.), I had to bugger around with the configs and crap and it still doesn't work. If anyone can help me with the configs so I don't have to go fullscreen and hit alt+f5 (game crashes before that), I'd greatly appreciate it.

Run Blood setup: >Screen Setup. Choose> Vesa modes Svga\vesa2.0> 800x600.
Then edit Blood.cfg to ScreenWidth = 1024, ScreenHeight = 768
Then edit BloodDosbox.conf and all other .conf files in your blood folder: The Line called Machine=svga_s3 or vga. to vesa_nolfb.

Hope this helps.

Sound Irq? Make sure your BloodDosbox.conf files have the same iRQ as your Blood.cfg

Yeah, their default dosbox conf has the irq set to 5 for some reason, so change that to 7 to match the blood setup and your good.

Try checking if tandy is set to on, that happened to me once and it messes up the irq, it should be set to auto

Does tandy stand for something? In which config would I find it? Sorry, not really in the mood to go looking, as I'm afraid I'll break something else. :p

tandy is a kind of pc speaker from old days I guess, all I know is I had it on once and it gave me irq errors whenever I tried running a game.

Finally I can access this page! I think there's something wrong with the site... This is the second time its blocked me out of a thread. When I say "Blocked out" I mean that it says : Sorry this topic no longer exist or something like that. Now I can read all the wonderful information I have missed out on! :lol:
Face it people, no one can re-create the unique feel of Blood, only the gods have such power...
