Running DOS Games
Under Windows 95
1997
by Brian Howard
ISBN: 1-55755-322-X

    This is not a Windows website, so the publications listed here pertain only to DOS except for some that have chapters which discuss other operating systems. However, this book is being listed here because of the number of comments I have seen, and questions I have received, regarding the usage of DOS programs under Windows. By far, the major problems are from those wanting to play DOS games. For them, this book offers solutions not found in many other places.

    After a short introduction to DOS and its basics, the author goes on to discuss Windows properties and hardware. He tells in plain language how to eliminate conflicts and how to answer questions asked by Windows regarding the game you are attempting to play. Some of this information will also be useful for those running DOS programs other than games. The rest of the book is devoted to CD and on-line DOS game discussions including some of the most popular such as "Doom", "Death Rally" and "Quake". A bonus is the CD-ROM which contains over a dozen games along with other software.
