need help running (2008-05-13 04:52) Ryanoceros
whenever i try to play colonization, i type in colonize but then it says "file-> findcd.c, line-> 56 could not locate cd"

i have the cd in of course so i do not understand the problem? also i have read other posts and tried typing in viceroy but then it says "exit value: 19" afterwards.

any help would be appreciated!!
Animation (2007-03-30 10:47) HailandKill
Games works great here. But what I want to do is skip that animation in europe ='(
It works ... but it's very very slow (2005-12-02 04:44) nevare
I tried all I could to make it faster ... but it stays horribly slow, and I have an AMD-64 3000 + (under linux ubuntu). Is it fast for you ?

Ah I guess I'll have to return under windows xp to play colonization (It works fine with windows xp if you say to execute it as a windows 95 program)
sound effect (2005-09-26 08:16) Danny23
I can't get the sound effects to work. When I run the game with the default dosbox configuration, there are terrible noises instead of sound effect.
I looked to your comments:
1) I tried covox or pro audio, but there were no sound effects
2) I tried custom configuration: original sound blaster instead of sb16, there were no sound effects

maybe I did something wrong?
? Any Help (2005-07-11 22:39) Elfy
It's not at all even runable for me. I'm being told that I must run it under Windows, and not the DOSBox. Any suggestions? Please email me at elfgirl26@iwon.com if you know how to fix it. I'm sure it's something simple that I just can't figure out. Thanks in advance.

Sound Effects (2005-06-26 04:29) Frobozz
Noise occured when using SB16 emulation. Noise stopped - and sound effects did fine - when set to SB1 emulation.
Sound (2005-06-13 06:44) Skar
I've had also problems with the sound. But with General Midi as soundcard and COVOX or Pro Audio for the effects, it works. The effects arren't perfect, sounds a little bit... strange. But it works without these terrible noise.
I wouldn't describe it as 'working perfectly' (2005-04-09 02:11) jez
Not quite sure why this has been given a compatibility level of 97% - I've downed it to 90% max. Playing this in DOSbox 0.63, everything seems to work with one notable exception - the sound effects. Any attempt at playing sound effects causes loud white noise. Until this is fixed, the game is nowhere near 100% supported. :-(
seems to work perfect with dosbox 0.62 (2004-10-14 00:48) Bora
is juts tried the game with the lates dosboxversion (0.62) you can finally strat the game by using the colonize.bat ot the viceroy.exe
maybe you must higher the framerate, but that's all. if i detect any error i will post it. but so far the game works fine. :)
Not fully supported (2004-07-01 21:46) Christian
I discovered a couple of problems when playing Colonization:

1. The end-animation doesn't work, so you won't get your final score (The animation and final score work in VDMSound).

2. If you access the "Economic advisor" menu the game will crash.

3. When moving less than 100 goods between a colony and a ship do not use the numeric keypad since this will freeze the game.

Apart from this the game runs fine.
DOSBox 0.61 (2004-02-28 14:12) Fizzban
In DOSBox 0.61, it is also possible to run colonize.bat.
Sound (2003-12-15 15:43) MammuT
The game works fine, but only with music, not with sound effects. I use the Roland MT-32 driver for optimal music. Not all songs works with SB pro.
Note: (2003-03-31 12:58) Finster
Launch viceroy.exe, not colonize.bat
