Reading this article http://www.avault.com/articles/getarticle.asp?name=remake on Avault brought back memories of Full Throttle, the second best adventure game I have ever played. I remember how I doubled my RAM (up to 8 Mb 8) ) just to be able to play it, making my very first upgrade to my computer. I know my original copy of the game is missing, but I want to play it again.
My problem is that I’m running Windows XP. Since DOS is not supported getting the game to run would be a gamble at best
I could track down a copy of Full Throttle, but I don’t know if I can play it on my computer. Buying Full Throttle just to be unable to play it is not something I would enjoy.
Is there a good way to make sure old DOS-games run reasonably well on XP, or does it differ for each individual game?
And no, I am not asking nor am I going to ask anyone to send me a copy of the game to try it out, though I realise that I could give that impression.
