Bio Menace Episode 3 - Master Cain remains broken (2012-03-31 18:53) Wizardling
Bio Menace Episode 3 - Master Cain remains broken in DOSBox 0.74. I've tried the patch that comes with the game, and two from this forum thread http://vogons.zetafleet.com/viewtopic.php?t=11661

Bio Menace Episode 3 - Master Cain hangs at the first screen showing which hardware is supported. The first two episodes work fine without any patching.

I have played this game way back when on my old computer that was dos but how do i download it i do not see a download button is it there and i am just not seeing it?
BioMenace works great (2007-03-14 01:58) adupui
I finding BioMenace works great with no patch in dosbox70 I have no game crashes when I shot bad guys.

Fix for DosBox 0.65 (2006-12-10 13:40) totsugeki
BioMenace crashes as soon as you kill an enemy in Dosbox 0.65. To fix this, run bmfix.com before running any of the BioMenace episodes. You can get bmfix.com from this forum thread

DOSBox CVS (08/20/2005), BioPatch.exe not required under XP! (2005-08-20 14:22) KRH
I have just tried running the first episode of BioMenace using DOSBox CVS 08/20/2005 under Windows XP w/SP2 and with and then without BioPatch.exe (mentioned above), and I'm very pleased to say that this game works 100% both times (for me anyway).

(I grabed this CVS version of DOSBox at http://ykhwong.x-y.net/. While your at it, go and check out DOSBox's official CVS repository at it's official project page (http://sourceforge.net/projects/dosbox/).
Yep, it works now. (2004-07-28 06:53) Jazzman
After patchiing it works 100%. I've got the same problem few years ago when I was having old 133 mhz, so I think it's a game bug :)
How to get it to work 100% (2004-06-30 14:40) emmzee
Found a post on the DOSBox forum awhile back about this but forgot to add a comment here ...

The post by Finster included a .exe file that you run before running Bio Menace in DOSBox which fixes the problem. You can download it at:
http://www.dosgames.com/biopatch.zip
The zip file includes instructions if they're necessary ;)
I WAS so so CLOSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (2004-04-25 16:12) MasterLink.EXE
It almost worked. I killed 3 aliens and got a key, but when i got the key, the game frozed. It might say "Iillgal Command" when you put the STACKS thing in. Just try to put the STACKS in a Differ part in the Config file.
Brain Blast!!!!!!!!!!!!! (2004-04-25 16:05) MasterLink.EXE
Try the putting the "Stacks" thing at the bottom of the config file of the DosBox. It a 50-50 percent chance of getting the game to work.
Just noticed this in the BM help (2004-02-28 08:10) emmzee
In the BM-HELP.EXE file which comes with the game it says:

------

If your game just locks up for no apparent reason (especially when firing a weapon, or when hitting one of the purple slugs), you'll need to try adding this to your CONFIG.SYS file.

STACKS=9,128

------

I'm not sure exactly what that means (never knew exactly what the "stacks" line in the config file was for!). Is there any way to do this in DosBox? At least it may provide a clue to the lockup problems .....
Confirmed, does *not* work properly in 0.61 (2004-02-28 08:01) emmzee
Yup, unfortunately this game locks up soon after you kill the first enemy.
Version 0.61 Crashes (2004-02-11 20:39) MasterLink.EXE
It works ok as long as you don't kill or get hit by an alien. But it freezes and the music keeps playing and the game is frozed. So the DosBox won't close in version 0.61.
Crashes (2004-01-21 21:48) pimpshiz
This game crashes for me too. After no more than a minute of gameplay it freezes. :P
Note: (2003-12-20 00:42) radiv
The game engine works 100%
But when I press the shoot button, the game freezes and exits. This is the same problem as I have got with some Windows versions running BioMenace. But then the "Illegal Operation" message are showing up instead.
WilliamHarris (2003-10-29 15:07) WilliamHarris1
It didn't for me.
Note: (2003-10-21 01:10) KermitTheFragger
Works 100% for me, verry smooth.
