i love the games....i played them back in 1992 when the shareware version came out for wolf and i had no speakers on my pc, so each grunt and groan and pain was replaced with a shrill pc bleat...

sooooo, in saying that, i have a win xp pc, but cant seem to get any version to install, is it not compatible or what?

thanx everyone

Welcome, teeceemadison. Feels nice to see someone who played the games when they had just come out visiting this place. Veterans like yourself are not that common around here.

Every game of the Spear/Wolf series should play fine no matter what version of Microsoft Windows you own, so tell us, what is exactly happening when you try to install the games? Rest assured we'll be able to help you out should you just provide us with more information about your problem.

Ariel.

I use Windows 98SE and have no problems, but on XP / ME, you may have to try the following resources:

- DOSBox, a DOS emulator for Windows ---> http://dosbox.sourceforge.net/ I never tried this for Windows, but a lot of people use it.
- VDMSound kind of does the same thing. It can be downloaded here: http://www.ece.mcgill.ca/~vromas/vdmsound/

For more information, including instructions by one of our local WolfenGurus Adam Biser, check out this thread in Audio Adventures: http://diehardwolfers.areyep.com/viewtopic.php?t=2121&start=0&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=

I hope this is what you need... Let us know.

-Ian

wolfenstein doesn't work too good on DosBox the FPS drops right down, and all VMD sound does to wolfenstein is add music too the game (which is cool) ive installed both spear and wolf fine on my windows XP...

I have WinXP, but I had only one problem: sounds aren't very good. For me VDMSound helped.
