The imagecf.exe program will not change any of your computer's configuration . All it does is the same thing that you're doing manually to Grim Fandango , except it does it automatically , and only for that game (or any other game that you use it for) smile

Ok Robert - that is reassuring. As I said I am not a PC tech so can get really confused about things. Will give imagecf.exe a try for some of the other games.

Am going to impose and ask you another question. Trying to install Tex Murphy Overseer but all I get is a window that says this game must be played in Win95 or 98. Can advise?

desertlilac, hi,

Sorry, been away from this thread for a few days. All of this stuff mentioned above, including how to correctly disable hyperthreading for a particular game, *and* how to get the DVD version of Overseer running in XP, is covered in my column at Quandary.

Just follow the link in my sig below thumbsup

Regards,
metzomagic

I'm sorry, but when I click on the link to download the file, I get a message that says "server not found."

Benedict, hi,

Oops. Our server is indeed down at the moment. I'll just do a Google search for imagecfg... and you can get it here:

One thing that I forgot about DOS and that is that it IS case-sensitive.

imagecfg -a 0x1 E:\Syberia\Syberia.exe

is NOT the same as

imagecfg -a 0x1 E:\syberia\syberia.exe

Be sure of the case of the letters in your file name.

DOS is generally not case sensitive, so it's good to know this is an exception.

Wow Sierra Rat, good spot! praise

I've never seen a DOS programme that was case sensitive to path names. Very strange.

Thanks,

Sorry, poor example. What I meant to show is that DOS is at least case sensitive on file names. I'm not sure if it is or not on the folder names. But then again, it doesn't hurt to keep the case the same for both names. The way I found this out was that imagecfg kept telling me it could not run on syberia.exe and I was only able to get it to run when I matched the case of the file and folder names (Syberia). I did not try matching folder and file case names independently.
