SIMON THE SORCERER 1 & 2 CD ver only runs under SCUMMVM

AA= SIMON THE SORCERER 1 and 2 CD version

AA doesnt run under DOS
AA doesnt run under doxbox
AA runs poorly under windows

how poorly?
mouse is too fast
sound is bad
aspect ratio is wrong

why? AA is a win95 program and they removed the DOS EXE file

AA only runs under SCUMMVM

There already is an option to select your save directory in Options->Path in the the ScummVM launcher. reply: this didnt work, when scummvm.ini has all the information of DOS games paths and scummvm.exe din not look for ini file from the directory where exe was launched, even if it wanted to. so sav...

Putting the configuration file and saved games into the same directory as the installation causes problems Reply : i do not think the installation itself causes a problem. If scummvm.ini is found during installation, then installation software scummvm-1.7.0-win32.exe does not overwrite the old scumm...

I read it all, but understanding all is a different story... otherwise, I never would have found out doxbox commands on my own, DOSBOX.EXE Y:\ZZZ1\CIV\CIV.EXE -c "mount c Y:\ZZZ1\CIV" -fullscreen -exit to make a batch file... and I probably tried the doxbox's turbo mode too back then, but it didnt d...

Maybe it was 9 to 11 years ago(I am not totally sure), when I found these DOS emulators, scummvm and dosbox, I had a Pen II 450Hz. Any games under that dosbox were impossible to play because they were too slow while several scummvm supported games were nicely playable. After that, I never looked bac...

point and click adventures only? But you have made Lands of Lord work under the windows OS, and Lands of Lore is more than point and click, that is a 2D shooter game as Shadow caster, They require massive screen changes, clicking mouse buttons and pressing hotkeys to play.

Is it possible to scummvm the strategy game like dune2?

Is it possible to scummvm these strategy DOS games like dune1, dune2, X-com UFO 1 and 2, and Master of orion, Master of Magic, Sid meiyer's Civilization, and Grandest Fleet?
Because they are too slow to play under DOS-BOX.
