Perfectly fine except the blackout transition is rather slow, and there are some very minor pauses during certain areas.
BARIS CD Missing GAMEDAT files (2007-03-24 18:15) dgml
Hi,

I tried Nicodevil solution but used MICROSOFT VIRTUAL PC 2007 with a virtual Windows 98SE. I installed BARIS CD there and retrieved those 6 files.
After that I copied those files to the BARIS\GAMEDAT directory on my WINDOWS XP. Finally I tried the game on DOSBOX. Guess what, now I can play the game with those mission videos working like a charm.
Videos are working fine now (2005-03-02 02:30) paylas
I had the same problem. There were no mission videos just some fuzzy pictures. Choose another CDROM Emulation level by typing "intro cdrom" maybe that will help?
cant Inst (2005-01-18 09:45) Redeagle
in XP it just don't start with install.exe (i klick but window closes without errormessage) and in DOSBox it says i have no CD-Rom although i mounted the drive :(
Works ALMOST fine... (2005-01-07 18:57) BakNBlack
As mentioned by go4tli, newscasts play fine, missions crash with sound on. I cannot get missions to play even in the still picture mode, with digital sound on. I have to turn the digital sound off (MIDI still works) and then it works.

And I do not think I could run a Dos 6.22 boot disk : DOS does not like NTFS.

But man, I miss those pretty movies. :(
Version 0.63, WinXP, and EMS (2004-11-23 05:39) go4tli
Sorry, Nicodevil, no joy. Newscast animations play fine in 0.63, mission animations don't. I followed your instructions for installing BARIS under WinXP; attempts to run it now complain about insufficient EMS. (Is there a memory manager in WinXP I can get to?) If animations don't matter to you, though, the game is still playable.
works fine (2004-05-26 13:43) holy_moly
The game works perfectly well for me. I don't have sound enabled but it apears in working order.
At last really playable on XP (CD version) (2004-05-01 09:35) Nicodevil
if you cannot install the game it's because you don't have any FAT hard drive...
no movies and other bug ? the problem is related to some missing files in the gamedat folder (missing FRM files, missing KEY files and 4 files without extension...), these 6 files are created during install (so there is no way to find them on the CD, that's why it doesn't works...)
boot your computer using a DOS 6.22 Bootdisk with CDROM support, install a ramdrive using XMSDSK (set it to 10 Mo, it's enough), install the game and copy the 6 following files in the floppy drive (there are less than 50 ko all together) :
ALTFSEQ.KEY
ALTSEQ.KEY
AUDIO
BARIS
GAMEDAT
ROM
do a "dir /s > a:\list.txt" in the baris folder, in order to create a list of all the files
then reboot, create the different folder according to the list.txt files and copy the 6 files to the gamedat folder and the others files according to the list.txt, launch setup and then play it !!!!!!
Fully playable on WinXP (2004-04-13 05:21) Cthulhus
Tested from versions 0.50 and older, Buzz Aldrin's doesn't work fine ... but now, with the new version of DosBox, it's fully playable ! Just some wav sound are slow...

Thanks DosBox !!
CD version playable on WinXP (2004-03-02 11:36) go4tli
Installed from version 0.60 executable. Frame rate a trifle slow, and movies work only occasionally. Game still perfectly playable, though. Too many cycles causes graphics crash.
Playable on x86 Linux with 0.60 (2003-11-04 18:59) wintermind
Did not run on Mandrake 9.1 with 0.58 built from source. D'oh!

Playable using 0.60 built from source on same machine. Woohoo!
