Can you emulate WIN-98 In XP so you can play Quake-1?
I have a SONY VIAO lap-top that has a 900mhz duron and 256mb ram and an ATI RAGE video chipset (It's not a 128). It had win-XP on it and it doesn't seem to want to install Quake 1 which I thought would be a fun game to play on this computer when I'm not able to use my desk-top power monster. I still find Q-1 to be totaly excellent!
I thought I read somewhere that XP can be set to think its' 98 for this very reason, does any one out there know how?
Doh, I can only find GLQuake on FilePlanet, and I'm not registered
GLQuake will also allow you to play on WinNT4, and I assume XP, but also implements the use of OpenGL, so the graphics look much better, not sure if your chipset supports OGL, I assume it does, try WinQuake first.
How do I get Quake installed in the first place? I need to install it off of the CD-ROM first don't I? This is where the problem is for me, it won't let me install it in XP. does anyone know how to do this?
The compatibility tab only appears on shortcuts to an .exe file
Odd, I have the compatability option on any exe I right click be it a shortcut or the actual exe. Even exe's on a cd. That's why I suggested he try that for the install exe though I've never had a lot of success with the compatability mode. I figured it was worth a quicktry.
I learned something new too even though I ran Win2000 until XP came out, I didn't know you got the tab on the shortcut. I just opened the compatabilty program and used it that way. Maybe that's why I seldom had success.
Thanks folks! I knew I could count on you to help. Now I'm Quakin' on the ol laptop:
SONY VIAO Duron 900, 256mb sdram, 15" TFT,
built in everything: Nic, Fire wire port, modem, (Iuse a cable modem into the nic though I've needed the phone modem on several occasions) sound.
