Playing CC On Win 8/10 - Older CCI to CCV On Modern PC's

Postby Sulla » Sat Dec 24, 2016 11:32 am

Many people are having issues playing CC in Win8/10.

There are various workarounds or awkward ways of fixing it. The easiest by far is using DOSBOX and NGlide.

Both can be downloaded here:

Here are descriptions of both:

DosBOX:
DOSBox is a DOS-emulator that uses the SDL-library which makes DOSBox very easy to port to different platforms. DOSBox has already been ported to many different platforms, such as Windows, BeOS, Linux, MacOS X...

DOSBox also emulates CPU:286/386 realmode/protected mode, Directory FileSystem/XMS/EMS, Tandy/Hercules/CGA/EGA/VGA/VESA graphics, a SoundBlaster/Gravis Ultra Sound card for excellent sound compatibility with older games...

You can "re-live" the good old days with the help of DOSBox, it can run plenty of the old classics that don't run on your new computer!

DOSBox is totally free of charge and OpenSource.

nGlide is a 3Dfx Voodoo Glide wrapper. It allows you to play games designed
for 3Dfx Glide API without the need for having 3Dfx Voodoo graphics card.
All three API versions are supported, Glide 2.1 (glide.dll), Glide 2.4 (glide2x.dll) and Glide 3.0 (glide3x.dll). nGlide translates all Glide calls to Direct3D.
Glide wrapper also supports high resolution modes.
