+ BATTLE BUGS

Post by wardrich »

Hummm it appears that Battle Bugs won't run on my Pent 4 2.02GHz WINXP computer. Heres the EXACT error i get


-------------------------------------------------------------------------
|16 bit MS-DOS Subsystem |X| |
|----------------------------------------------------------------------- | |
|C:\Battle~1\BBUGS\BUGS.EXE |
|The NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction |
|CS:0000 IP:0077 OP:f0 37 05 0c 02 Choose 'Close' to terminate|
|application |
| |
| -------- ---------- |
| |Close| |Ignore| |
| -------- --------- |

---------------------------------------------------------------------------


NOTES
--------

1)The last line I KNOW is in HEX Code
2)Clicking IGNORE does nothing but pop the error back up
3)Sorry about the Lop Sidedness of this pic
4)Top line is referring to Directory of file
5)Perhaps this error is embedded into the program because I'm on XP and the error isnt in one of those funky boxes with the red |X|


Please help me

Have you tried slowing the game down? Older games often fall over themselves on recent processors.
