Re: Z and Windows 7

Do you have troubles getting DOSBox to run in Windows 7 or do you have problems setting up Z in DOSBox? Sure, using DOSBox might not be the preferred method to play Z but I think Windows 7 is suited worse to run Z than it's predecessors. Of course, you might give Z95 + Antares' patch a try.

Re: Difference between Z and Z95

I did not play the Windows version so often, but I recall this from my memory (may not be correct): Level 11 "Chilly Willy" and Level 12 "Heavy Metal" are swapped in Z95, as well as Level 18 "Bridge Game" and Level 19 "Mayhem". Game speed seems to be faster in Z95, even on the slowest setting. Unit ...

Re: I got a Problem with Z

I assume you are trying to run the DOS version. In this case you'll definitely need DOSBox. There are a few good tutorials on this forum about how to install Z in combination with DOSBox. If you have a specific question about the procedure, ask away. :cheers:

Re: Did you know...

Yeah, this sounds incredibly stupid, but is there a way to attack your own units? :mrgreen: Sometimes this could be handy, especially when you have nearly 50 units and most of them are robots. You could get rid of the robots and build tanks instead! This would probably reduce your score, but who ca...

Re: Critical File missing: main.pac

There you go. The Windows version is the download you are looking for: http://www.dosbox.com/download.php?main=1 Actually, you don't need to install the game everytime you want to run it. Remove any lines with "install" from the autoexec section and make sure it looks like this (if you followed the ...

Re: Critical File missing: main.pac

How do i do that?

Open the file I mentioned abov...

Re: Critical File missing: main.pac

You can add the mount commands at the end of the [autoexec] section of the DOSBox configuration file dosbox.cfg in the directory where DOSBox is installed. Everytime you start DOSBox, every command below [autoexec] will be executed.

Re: ZeXP in Linux

Antares, What does your screenshot show? Have you tried to boot the Ubuntu CD or did this message appear after trying to boot Ubuntu after a successful installation. I am asking because the that screenshot says the filesystem it found was NTFS, which is unusual for Linux based operating systems. If ...

Re: ZeXP in Linux

Hello and a happy new year. :cheers: I tried to run Z95 under Wine 1.1.11, the currently most recent version. To install it I mounted an image of the Z95 CD as a drive in winecfg and used the Z Expansion Patch 1.6. The installation works successfully but the game does not. The patched "zxp.exe" does...

Re: Busted in rank to private

Very interesting question, let's find it out! I do not know for certain, but I assume that the score does not play a role in ranking since I scored only 4963 on level 17 and still became a warlord. Of course, I might be wrong and somewhere around 4000 is the requirement for warlord so it would be ni...

Re: Brad and Allan are stuttering fools

Assuming that you have the most recent version of DOSBox, set cycles and core to "auto". And try changing every option in the [dos] section to "true", hoping that it helps your problem.

Re: No news is good news?

I think he is referring to the BBros and a possible chance of a new Z game or remake.

Unfortunately, there are rarely any news about them. Wikipedia even says they don't exist anymore. What's up with that? :cry:
