No sound (2015-05-18 15:45) KhaozHydra
Any clue how to get the sound working? I've tried googling it but I keep getting how to install. It runs just fine and the sound files all seem to be there but I don't know how to get them to play. I tried SETSOUND in the sound folder but it's still really quiet. Set sound to soundblaster 16 the next seting to 7 and theres a third setting labeled 0-3. not sure what that does. This is for the MIDI or something like that. Music not working at all.
v0.72 - Runs fast, but otherwise works (2008-11-28 19:39) Drake3
I tested it with DOSBox 0.72 and it runs perhaps close to double the speed it normally plays at, but other than that, it is almost perfect as far as I can tell. I even tested the network and it works fine. The only other minor issue I saw was after the game ended, the description text and statistics were inaccurate on the host and written twice, overlapping, on the client.

The compatibility for 0.72 may need to be altered to reflect this.

Graphics Corruption Fix (2007-03-22 11:06) Zardus
I found the following fix for my (and other people's) graphics corruption issues that I mentioned in an earlier post (over 3 years ago!). The fix is to remove fade.dat (in the data directory) and run Genewars. It'll regenerate a new, correct fade.dat and will work. I'm pretty sure I've tried to get this game working every single year since 2003, so much thanks to ErikGG who figured it out at VOGONS (http://vogons.zetafleet.com/viewtopic.php?=&p=100291)!
don't get it to run properly (2006-09-29 07:12) SchEater

0.61 & 0.62 works OK (2004-11-14 13:36) Joshua_X
HOTU (underdogs) version works fine for me - graphics, sounds, speed ... no problem at all.

Note: (2003-11-20 12:02) Zardus
Game loads up fine, menu works great. Sound works fine. When you start the game, though, the graphics are really messed up. There is a blue tint on everything, the elevation seems to have an effect on the color of the ground, and the whole thing ends up looking like colored polygons stringed together instead of a terrain. The game also froze for me once while trying to build a building, but I havn't been able to recreate that.
