Re: Trouble running Keen 9 Battle Of The Brains

Well - I can't agree with that. If Keen didn't crash, then OK. But in this position no.

I need to find the beta version of Keen 9 just to have the cheats turned on so I can look at the memory stats.

Re: Trouble running Keen 9 Battle Of The Brains

I don't know why, but I have 615k free, but Keen never takes more then 347k of standard and 64kb of expanded making it 411kb total memory allocated. I never managed it to see Extended memory...

Re: Trouble running Keen 9 Battle Of The Brains

Well, I do not. All my machines even with QEMM97 have still troubles running Keen9 (it doesn't look like it, but Shikadus second and third level crash), Terror From Outer Space crashes on loading few last levels and Atroxian Realm crashes right after first level...

Yeah, sure, why not. Can even test it on real HW if you're interested ;)

Re: Trouble running Keen 9 Battle Of The Brains

Well, quite a few actually. http://i1382.photobucket.com/albums/ah276/krivulak/P_20180106_180646_zpsvt7xq5rt.jpg All of those runs with lesser or bigger problems. Keen Dreams Plus - OK Terror From Outter Space - Running out of memory - often no music in bigger levels or the level doesn't load at all...

Re: Trouble running Keen 9 Battle Of The Brains

Well, I am using two computers right now to run it and neither of them can. It crashes while loading Trogg village.

First is Pentium MMX running on 166MHz with S3 Trio 2MB, 192MB of RAM and Windows 95.
Second is Thintune eSeSIX VLVI01 with VIA Eden ESP3000, 64MB of RAM and DOS 6.22 with QEMM97.

Re: Trouble running Keen 9 Battle Of The Brains

Finally, I made some progress!
I managed to make enough memory to run Keen 9! QEMM was my tool of choice, it is awesome!
Well, it didn't make enough memory to run Terror From Outer Space, but that will change, I really hope so :)

Re: Trouble running Keen 9 Battle Of The Brains

Eh, this is not the problem I am having. My problem is based on really poor memory management in DOS.

Re: Trouble running Keen 9 Battle Of The Brains

Well, few years later I came little bit closer to the answer. What I found out is that really Keen9 is pushing the memory limits to maximum. I need to set the system so more XMS and EMS is free, but somehow I have to make Keen to actually take the memory and that's what is my problem. I changed to o...

I had EXACTLY same problem, but I solved it the easiest way. My 486 Gaming Rig had PCI ATI RAGE II+DVD, scrolling problem was horrible, it didn't do only the glitch you recorded, but few other glitches too. Few weeks later I noticed that we have an exposition of old stuff in computer class. So I dug...

Back in the year 1999 I was three years old and my dad brought our very first computer. He got it from town hall, they were sorting out inventory and they were selling not used stuff. So my dad bought that for something like 100 bucks back in the day (3000 CZK), what was SUPER MUCH, but he didn't kn...

Well, a little update. What is going on? I got it to work! How? Simply by trashing that stupid Windows 95 and returning back to old trusted MS-DOS 6.22. I played first level, well, insuffient memory for background music, blah blah blah, yada yada yada... When I got hit by BioGarg, it crashed again, ...

Holly mother of god, I tried everything, but I can not set Windows 95 MS-DOS mode to see more then 562 KB of RAM (7000kb is expanded, and it is trying to run keen on 279 KB RAM with NO expanded or extended memory whatsoever. But there is 7 megabytes free! Argh... What is interesting, Wolfenstein 3D ...
