Shadow Warrior Runs (2013-03-06 23:47) GHOST
I have ran Shadow Warrior with no problems running Windows 7 Amd 64 x 2 3800+ some times game will crash or freeze if you use cliping mode in some levels like Master Lees Temple running Dosbox version 0.74
Stuttering with 0.72 (2008-06-30 23:30) Enmoku
With v0.72, the last(?) shareware level with the volcano gets almost unplayable because of massive stuttering around the time you find the crying girl and gets worse from there on out.
Great However... (2008-05-29 08:26) LEO WARRIOR
This is a great game Works Fine but the music doesnt work even when i have the CD in it doesnt play.
slow fullscreen (2007-11-13 17:45) grochu84
On 0.72 in fullscreen mode when monster attacks (changing to red screen) makes game unplayable. On window mode works perfect.
Perfect! (2007-08-16 09:09) Octane
It works perfectly on 0.71 on XP
Zero lag, no choppy sound! Just like in the good old days.
Installed in XP under C:\SW using the dos installer on the cd.
Then ran the setup from dosbox and that's it.
used Sound Blaster 0x220, Interrupt 7, 8bitDMA 1, 16bitDMA 5
32 voices,16-bit mixing, Stereo, 22Khz
screen VESA 800x600
Fine on DosBox 0.70 CVS (2007-06-07 12:21) ObiKenobi_1
Fully playable at lo-res in DosBox 0.70 CVS, might have little slowdowns in huge open areas, but it's a minor glitch, you won't even bother
DosBox 0.70 (2007-05-10 14:19) nick7inc
The Game looks like very playable (the first level) under Athlon XP 1700 (1100 MHz) is not super smooth, but GOOD, I can easy play! Sound looks good!
0.63 (2007-03-16 14:15) Peck
Still just as unplayable with DOSBox v0.63
XP-Compatible Build (2005-12-26 21:39) DoombreedTrollsan
3D Realms released the sourcecode to both SW and Duke3D and there's a million and one (well, alot anyway) different builds that reliably play well on XP, including re-compiles for Build and such. But if you like running it through DosBox, more power to you... :)
game plays perfectly, just no sound (2005-08-14 16:16) edale
These are the settings I've changed from default to get shadow warrior running perfectly graphically.

[render]
frameskip=1

[cpu]
cycles=20000

These are my sound settings

[sblaster]
type=sb16
base=220
irq=7
dma=1
hdma=5
mixer=true
oplmode=auto
oplrate=22050

I've tried setting the sound in both setup.exe and setmain.exe, and the sound test works perfectly in both, but I can't get the sound to work in-game for some reason... any help appreciated.
Yes, the game runs but does not PLAY... (2005-03-23 20:28) Undesirable
Sure you can tweak CPU cycles and frameskip all you want. I for one haven't been able to get it playable (at acceptable speeds) on this emulator. Hence the game is "runnable" but barely "playable" (if at all), so please do not set the status level any higher for Shadow Warrior.
0.63 just as slow (2004-12-16 10:55) Mephisto1982
frameskip didnt help me much to boost fps. although i did notice a big increase in fps, i dont know if its because of my tweaking or because of faster performance from dosbox. im using 30000 cycles on an amd athlon 2600 on linux.
New Tweak (2004-12-08 09:32) TranceWarp
The choppyness goes away after setting the "frame skip" option to "1" (320x200 Std only...havn't tried other modes yet).
Runs, with a little fiddling. (2004-11-21 21:15) me262
Updated to 90% <> Registered CD Version: 1.2 <> Will not run from a CD image, due to the way DOSbox handles CD-Audio from an image. So use CD-Rom mode. <> Turned the CPU Cycles way up to 20,000 using D-Fend v2. <> Works with full blown AWE32 sound (32 voices, 22kHz, 16bit, Stereo), but may still be slightly choppy. <> Currently only 320x200 (Std) and 320x200 / 320x400 (VESA) work correctly. <> 640x480 and 800x600 (VESA) are choppy, and exhibit some palette errors. 800x600 also displayed graphical glitches. <> Was this tested in prior versions using these settings?
0.62 Note: (2004-10-01 14:36) Undesirable
Still just as unplayable with DOSBox v0.62.
0.61 Note: (2004-02-08 12:26) Undesirable
A similar situation with DOSBox 0.61; plays very choppy and is extremely slow to start up.
Note: (2003-10-18 18:48) Undesirable
Shadow Warrior is now runnable under DOSBox 0.60, but plays extremely slowly with choppy sound. Tweaking the emulation throttle and frameskip with my 3.06ghz P4 did not seem to make much difference.
Note: (2003-10-12 12:18) Undesirable
Error: Protected mode not supported.
