Works fine on 0.74 (2012-11-30 08:20) wallyweek
Testing with an ISO image made from my original CD both on Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.04.

Works like a charm for me, no need to tweak the configuration file other than mounting D: as the CDROM, but this is a software protection, not a Dosbox issue.


Dosbox v0.63 + D-Fend v2 + War2 ISO Image Retail 1.22 (2005-06-19 13:51) X_Tra
Hello! Maybe this comment will be helpful to somebody. I have War2 ISO Image Retail 1.22 (english version). Setup.exe doesn't work in my WinXP, and it doesn't work in DosBox if iso is inserted into my virtual CD-Drive. To install, do: IMGMOUNT iso as X:\ drive directly in Dosbox (before this MOUNT your hdd as C:\ drive to set fullpath to your iso); then MOUNT folder, where you wish to install, as G:\, for example; then run X:\Setup.exe -w (switch -w must present), specify G:\War2TD as target dir, and install. Now you have game installed into desired folder. Then configure D-Fend v2 to run war2.exe and setup.exe as usual, including IMGMOUNTing iso each time as X:\. Enjoy playing :)
best settings (2005-05-21 03:07) Rusttaf
Hi people, I wonder if someone could tell me what settings leads to the best performence.

I use the D-Fend v2 and set eviroment to:
63MB of dos memory, enabled XMS and EMS,
10000 Cycles, 500 up, 20 down, normal CPU Core, 0 Frame Skip and
vga video card

but I think, it could be smoother...
Does enyone knows how to set it better?

My PC is AMD Athlon 2400+ and 514 MB RAM
v0.63 and Original WC2 CD. (2005-03-01 15:18) oberon77
I have finally gotten everything to work.
SB16 settings and installed the game right from XP SP2. installed to c:\war2 and then moved the folder to my dosgames folder, and then all I had to do was to edit war2.ini and set CD path to D:\ (top of ini)
I also added the WARCRAFT2 label just in case.
Thanks to D-Fend it was a breeze to do :)

ZUGG ZUGG :D
cannot run (crash when preparring install program) (2004-10-05 05:20) michalli
hello gigaslow, please specify what and how edit WAR.INI. I using Windows XP Proffesional SP2. In DOSBox mount my cdrom as D: and when preparing install installer crash :-(
v0.62 Works Fine For Me (2004-10-01 06:59) teshia
I'm using a pirate rip so I can't talk about CD problems, but other than that, it runs smooth as silk on my p4-2800 with 512 MB RAM - No stutter on sound at all.
Warcraft 2 (ToD and BtDP) (2004-09-18 02:01) Jolaes
Well, it won't run as smooth as with VDMSound
but the MIDI music is definitely better...
The main problem is that the sound chunks are HUGE
and whatever your CHUNKSIZE setting is, you will get a lag. Also, ingame sound is optimized for SB16 cards (recorded at more than 22 kHz) so if your mixer (soundcard driver) doesn't support 32 and 44 kHz, you need remixing which is ALWAYS BAD...You might get a slight performance improvement by changing your soundcard hardware acceleration level and sample rate conversion settings.
Unfortunately, DosBox hasn't got SB16 support yet,
so you'll be better off with VDMSound.
The noCD patch is very difficult to get, it is no longer available from Megagames. :(
Note: (2004-09-09 18:04) gigaslow
Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness problems:
- D: must be the cd drive
- And you have to edit WAR.INI in the application directory for it to work correctly.
