ok, I just got discworld 2 running. I had to make a few adjustments in dosbox. Now it works find except for two things: the sound has a buzz in the background (maybe I chose the wrong sound card...how do I know which one to choose?) and the sound and the video are a bit "jumpy" i.e. rincewind moves ...

someone should say guybrush's gonna be shooting aliens...I bet the signatures would jump for about 100 times...especially if there's a king kong with great sfx and a really lame story...

I really wish I had a really crappy computer so that I could play the best games...now it's not good enough for the new games (suxky graph. card) and too good for old games like DW...why can't they just make up theri mind about what kind of a comp you'll need to play a goddamn game??

I think the safest simplest way for everything to work is to keep the original files (all of them) in the subfolders AND copy EVERYTHING to the root folder...that way everything worked for me so far...

so there's currently no way of playing discworld 2 on windows xp? DW2 works decently in DOSBox, providing you've got a good machine. funny though...I tried using dosbox, I have a 1700mhz pentium with everything pretty good (though the graphics card could be better) and it didn't even start running....

need help & info for discworld 2...

I'm sorry I'm posting this here but I just don't know where else to ask... Any ideas about whether or not I can play Discworld 2 - mortality bytes and 3 - noir (especially 2) on windows xp with scummvm? if not what else can I do? I really loved that game years ago and since then I've read every disc...
