Default Can anyone help me getting Digger to work?

Hello all,

Im trying to get the very old game Digger from Windmill Software to work on a Pentium I 60, of course one would think that you can make it work quite easily if you download windigger, but im talking about the Digger version in which you can choose something like 25 other versions by pressing F10, I thought it was called Digger Loader, anyways, I tried DOSBOX - didnt help, I tried MOSLO didnt help, (altough MOSLO BIZ might help but then I would have to pay for the full version) and now im turning to you guys, Can anyone help me out maybe?

I actually meant, getting to play Digger in normal speed, I can get it to work, just not in normal speed, its either too fast or too slow with Dosbox.

Try altering the CPU Cycles setting in DOSBox?

Hey

Is that the same as pressing CTRL F12 or F11? if so, I already did that. Thanks for the suggestion though.

If running too fast is the problem, you could always try a program like CPUKILLER. If running to slowly is the problem, though, and you've tried all the different cycle sections (which your last comment certainly implied you had), then I'm afraid I don't know what to do. Tinker around with any settings you can find, and then try checking the DOSBox compatability list.

Wow, the results of CPUKILLER were pretty acceptable, Digger almost had a normal speed, alas whenever you finished a level the game just crashed.(It just stopped without loading the next level.)

I appreciate the help though, Thanks LaceyWare.
