Problems running ROBOT CITY- old game from mid90's

Q: Problems running ROBOT CITY- old game from mid90's

here are the minimum/max specs for this game
Max Supported Color Depth: 8-bit (256 colors); SVGA graphics(256 colors with 640*480 resolution)
Min Operating System: Microsoft Windows 3.1 or later
Min Processor Type: Intel 486 or higher 25 MHz
Min RAM Size: 8 MB

I got a 633 celeron with 256+mb RAM, onboard video--Intel(R) 82810 Graphics Controller and i have XP pro.

I think that the likely problem is the graphics controller, as in display properties under settings all i can select for color quality is either 16bit or 24bit.

I tried to run it by selecting *run in compatibility with Windows95 *run in 256 colors * run in 640*480 screen resolution. but NO luck. i get two black screens and then it quits right back to desktop. is it even possible to run this game on my comp? if yes, what is the problem?????

Preferred Solution: Problems running ROBOT CITY- old game from mid90's

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Robot City is an old '95 game. Nevermind why I'm wasting my time with it..

I can load the game just fine and everything works except for a small glitch in the display. When I move the mouse it leaves a large square trail behind it and distorts the screen turning it black.

The help file mentions this and I am running the game in 640x480 and 256 color just as it says I should.

Any ideas?

Here is the section of the help file that mentions it:

7. Video Display Problems
Robot City requires 256-color mode
Robot City is an 8-bit, 256-color application. In order to view
Robot City, you need a video card which supports at least 256
colors in 640x480 resolution. Robot City requires you run in 256
color mode. Other modes will cause colors to appear incorrectly
and may cause streaking or trails on the screen. If you are not
in 256-color mode, a warning dialog will appear when you launch
Robot City telling you to correct the problem, exit and restart

back in ye days of olde There was a game for the Tandy TRS-80 Model 1 called "Robot Nimh"
You had Robots in (4?) rows, and the one on the end would "shoot" the number of Robot's you typed in. Object I beleive (been several years since I played it) was the human player had to have the last Robot standing to win the game from the computer.

Whenever I play a game on my pc, regardless of what it is, it will lock up and loop w.e sound is playing for about 10secs then resume to normal game play. I have done several things to try and find the issue myself:

1. Formatted computer and installed the newest driver for sound, video, and cpu. Although i updated windows fully prior to the drivers.
2. Cleaned out my computer of dust.
3. Ran memtest86x for 14 hours with all passes.
4. Ran the sea gate HDD tester with pass on ever test (maxtor 100gb).
5. Went and bought a zalman cooler for my VGA card which keeps my card at 63 C with load (7600gt).
6. Took my hard drive and set it next to my ear while playing the game (lol) to hear any noises when the lockups occur.
7. Monitored the temp of cpu, gpu, HDD, and mb, all with normal temps (MB=47 c, HDD 43 C, CPU 44 C)
8.Bought a new power supply thermoltake i believe 600 watt, or 650.
9. Made sure the power settings were set to never for hard drive turn off in power management tab.
10. I know its not program related because if done the whole misconfig only load MS services and turn off everything else thing. Plus i just reformatted.
11. Tried the second pci-express slot on MB to see if it was the primary slot (i turned the chip over to single gpu so it would work, only ran at 8x but problem stilled occurred.)

and that's about all if done. For system specs...

many thanx in advance

A:making thrustmaster game pad work with gta vice city?

You can try controller setup in options. Also, if that doesn't work you can delete the settings file in the GTAVC folder. The game will make a new one when you start it up. Leave it in the recycle bin until you have the new settings file, just in case.

Son has new XBox (Christmas gift) and has played Vice City numerous times. It's recently started hanging up just before the pink loading bar completes; with a "loading" signal that never disappears.
The CD loads okay at the game store. Son claims he did nothing to mess up the XBox when saving his game.
Anyone have any suggestions on how to kick start the game?

I purchased athe "Big City Adventure San Francisco" game from Best Buy, and when trying to install it the Avira virus software denys the installation because it says there is a virus
HEUR/Exploit.HTML virus trying to install. How can I get a virus from software that I purchased at a store?

A:Avira says Big City Adventure San Francisco game has virus

This is something I've had happen a few times with different games (F.E.A.R being one of them). With viruses becoming more aggressive and harder to detect AV programs have gotten more aggressive to try and find them. This is resulting in some false positives, your game is probably not infected if it is in fact a legit store bought CD. What I would do if I were you is 1. report the false positive to Avira (this has worked for me with AVG who has updated their definitions within days to remove the false positive) 2. Go to the official forums of "Big City Adventure San Francisco" and see if other people are running into the same thing and what they are doing to rectify it.

I'm sorry I can't offer any more input than this as I have neither "Big City Adventure San Francisco" nor Avira on my computer but I do know how frustrating a problem this is

I recently purchased a game called Darkseed, and I was using DOS Box to run it. Long story short, I got the game to run when I ran it off the CD itself, not the place in which I installed it. But the problem was, the game crashes at a certain point when I pick up a package because the files are not read only. I need to be able to run the game off the place I installed the game with all the files changed from read only to...not read only. But, as I stated, the game wouldn't launch when I mounted the game from the C folder.

I did some research and this is what I came up with:

After some debugging i've found that the game MUST be installed in the directory #:\darkseed\ where # is one of your disks. Also you have to change the contents of the file #:\darkseed\cdletter to appropriate '#' letter.

The program tries to print error messages about not finding vital files, but since it cannot find the appropriate font file, it results in the garbled screen...Click to expand...

So I need to change the contents of the file "cdletter", but I can't figure out how to do that. I can open the file in notepad and all it says is "E". I changed it to "C" and tried to save it, but it wouldn't let me and said: "Cannot create the C:/DARKSEED/CDLETTER file". If I can just "change the contents" to "C", the game should run, and it shouldn't crash. If anyone can even understand what I'm talking ab... Read more

I've recently found the amazing game Magic Carpet, by Bullfrog Entertainment (now taken over by EA), which I used to play on my Compaq Presario 1500 back when Windows 95 had just come out... a DOS game.

The game runs, excepting sound, but it runs MUCH faster than it's supposed to... characters are flitting around near the speed of light and it's impossible to navigate my character.

I've tried CPUKiller... at low levels it didn't help and at mid to high levels it made the rest of my computer crawl but only resulted in the game skipping and lagging, which I'd guess was a struggling framerate?

I'm not sure what to do. I have noticed that F1 through F10 alter some things in the game, and I can toggle between a normal speed, fast, and super fast, which doesn't help when "normal" is a blistering speed. I tried running a hex editor to possibly alter this speed value to my advantage (I'm not sure if that was the right thing to do). It seems like running anything with the game results in low virtual memory and lags out my system.

Here's the [Magic Carpet Demo Download]
And here's the Patch, two files which replace the two found in the Levels folder (in case you solve my problem and want to enjoy the game for yourself)

Any ideas?

Thats the problem with running it in Windows XP & unfortunately, it can't be fixed. You're better of trying to run in it Windows 98 or 95 if u still have them. I have Windows 98 installed as a backup OS on a second partition on my hard disk. I play this old DOS game called Return to Zork from time to time. I too tried CPU Killer but no use. I ran it in Windows 98 instead, and it ran perfectly.

A:Sim City 4 problems


The problem with XP Mode is that it does not visualize a lot of VRAM (16mb is the max), so is what you need is another program to do the job.

You could try to use VMlite: http://www.vmlite.com/
download "VMliteWorkstationSetup.exe"

NOTE: you will have to register at their site.

Also, in the settings you will have to: 1) enable 3D video acceleration and 2) raise the VRAM.

After about 30-40 seconds, it goes back to normal, but when you are trying to play a game and it freezes up every 15 minutes, it can get annoying!

Ok this sounds strange but its a project for school where we take a box of random pc crap and build something out of it. I'm using the fans as wheels for a fighting battle robot I'm making. Are there any programs that can instantly let me control the speeds of the fan (So I can steer) also one that can control all of the fans so I can have an extra one to control a spinning saw blade (actully a sharpend hard disk)

Robot txt

On my web site log is a section that gives the Top 10 documents not found. Amongst these is my home page URL/robots.txt. The figures for this last week show that it failed to access on 62 occasions which was 59%

Looking back on earlier logs the failure rate seems to be about 50% to 60%.

Is this important and what should I do about it?

The web site is built using FrontPage

Hello, I have a Sony Vaio laptop and recently whenever I use YouTube, Spotify, Netflix, stream or play audio/visual content anywhere the sound freezes and makes a robot noise constantly.

I am a dummy with computers and technical stuff but from what I have read on the web regarding this matter it could have been something to do with drivers, too much stuff on the hard drive, flash and/or java needing updating etc..

I have done all of these things (I think) and it still hasn't done anything! Could someone plleeassee advise me what I need to do to sort this out.

Also, my fan is very hot and sounds like a vacuum cleaner (I have tried cleaning it, I think I need a new fan) but could this be affecting anything?

Thanks all

edit: I use latest internet explorer, and sometimes chrome but it is the same on both of the browsers, and besides it happens with spotify which is downloaded?

A:Audio sounds like a robot on everything, please help!!

It does sound like something having to do with your sound card drivers. I would go into the device manager which is in the system tab of the control panel and completely uninstall the sound card and any other related components; reboot; then let windows hopefully re-detect and reinstall the sound card and its associated drivers.If you need more info on anything just ask.

Hey everyone,

I'm new to the forums but i figured you guys could answer my question. I just purchased Robot Arena 2 online for 20 bucks, and at first Vista wouldn't execute it. But then I downloaded a patch from the RA website. Now the game loads to the first few intro screens that say ... Infogrames...etc. all the title screens. But when it suppose to be on the menu screen its just black with the cursor showing...I've tried to run it in compatiblity mode but it did not work...

Is this game not compatible with Vista or what? I have Vista Ultimate x64, ATI 3200 HD
*I ordered windows 7 and it should be in before Christmas, would it possibly work on it?

Thanks for any help!

My skype sounds like a robot any time I use it. I have tried donloading it from the website, using the skype video app already on my computer and it still doesnt work. Everything else auditory works fine, video, music, etc. But anytime I try to skype it sounds like a robot is talking, lags and is very annoying. I know others are having this problem too but I can't find a solution. I know internet connection is usually the problem but I have tried it right next to the router and it still doesn't work. I then use the app on my phone and it works fine but its really frustrating to have to do that when I just bought this computer not even a month ago. Please help!

It seems like a question ripped from the back of a cheap sci-fi novel: What happens when the robots are turned against us?
But researchers at the University of Washington think it's finally time to start paying some serious attention to the question of robot security. Not because they think robots are about to go all Terminator on us, but because the robots can already be used to spy on us and vandalize our homes.
