CPU cycles (2008-03-01 01:33) bugmenot
DOSBox needs to be set to about 15000 Cycles. Auto cycles or high values will make the game crash.
Works better under DOSBox 0.65 (2006-04-05 14:05) pottyboy
Everything should be OK now. It even installs properly.
Creature Shock under DOSBox 0.63 (2005-12-18 23:33) VorteX DrAgON
Game crashes, when begins first stage (Fly to the base through asteroid belt).

Sound Setup is next:
Sound - SoundBlaster 16 (A220,I5,D1)
Music - GeneralMIDI (A330)

Escape key problem (2005-03-22 16:34) pottyboy
The escape key, used to quit back to the title screen, doesn't work. To quit to the title screen, you need to kill yourself. Since this takes a long time, I advise that you do not run the game in fullscreen mode. You can quit the game instantly in windowed mode by pressing the key that brings up your start menu and then closing the window. Be warned that this also closes DOSBox.

You need to quit to the title screen in order to quit the game itself!
Having sound trouble? (2005-03-10 16:15) pottyboy
When you install the game in Windows, you need to make note of the IRQ etc of each sound card device you choose (you have to choose one for the sound, and one for the music. I chose the SoundBlaster 16 for both). Once the game is installed, and you've moved it to the directory that you use as a hard drive in DOSBox, you need to configure the soundcard you chose to emulate in DOSBox to match the settings for the game.

e.g. If the installer said that the IRQ for your chosen card is 5, then set IRQ in DOSBox to 5.
Windows installation (2004-08-05 15:57) zedr
Install the game from Windows, then copy over the directory. Runs fine.
Note: (2004-01-12 06:27) Iggi
Installer doesn't detect CD1.
