the reason why i "[I]resurrected[I]", so you say, this topic is because i can't post in FAQ and i need help running apoc in win9x.

the reason you can't post in faq is because... *drum roll* your not supposed to. what you are supposed to do is post in the support forum. the faq is just for recording questions often asked in support so that people can check to see if their q is answered there first.

I was lucky with my solution. I got hold of an old 166 Win 98 machine :power:

to fix the low mouse sens problem _without_ setting your windows mouse speed to "omg where is the cursor now I just moved it 1 millimeter"-speed:

goto this page:
http://www.minnemacs...sandbox/xp.html

download mousectl.exe and read the instructions and its fixed.

It works! But the mouse is still slow after trying both means of correction and the sound stil won't work...
I have both of the programs (VDMSound and mousectl.exe)
The sound is all sorted to the extent that I've put the line in the file, the game accepts the soundblaster ladida... But... When I run the game with the sound enabled it reverts straight to the end screen from the nocd crack... So I'm playing with no sound...
The manual mouse speed alteration doesn't help either. Plus I can't use the thing I downloaded for it as it loads and quits immediately... Any further suggestions?

you should make a xcom.bat file to start the mousectl and xcom in that order.

mines looks like this:

@echo off
mousectl 3,4,8,10,10,10,10,10
xcomapoc.exe SKIP

rightclick on the bat file and choose "run with vdmsound", set it to soundblaster 16, port 220, irq 7, dma 5.

There's a nice bug walkthrough at xcomufo.com

Never thought I'd be playing Apoc on xp...Anyway, in regards to the mouse.com ctl, when scrolling the left and top screen edges ingame, the direction is reversed for some reason so the only real useful way of scrolling is by using the arrow keys.Any solution to this?

And isn't it possible to bypass the use of the cd when running the game?

I have the same problem with mousectl. When scrolling left and up, the directions are reversed.

So I'll ask too :power:  Does anyone know how to fix it?

hmm...i dunno whats wrong with u guys computers...i have two,one with XP and the other with 98, believe me that if u wanna play apoc u should use 98...
windows 98 will run ANYTHING!!! XP sux complete ass....well anyways...i got it to run on my XP computer fine (but play it only on 98) it all depends on the amount of buffers u got....it requires like 20\20 on your buffers....just pop in a couple of DDR RAM cards into your CPU and the buffers should be high enough (even one will do the trick, but your performance line will turn yellow...just meaning that it might freeze up sometimes...which is rare) if ur buffers are okay,then send me a message and i'll help u with the problem....but most of the time its just the buffers
messing with u....remember....if it's not the buffers and u don't know what it is...send me a message telling me the problem,85%of the time i should be able to help u fix it...

eh? you don't pop ram into your CPU! that would be very bad your your PC's health you know! :power:
:: waves finger ::
you put ram into ram slots and it depends what type of ram your motherboard accepts.
the amount of files/buffers does not (or should not from what little i know) depent on your hardware specs, but on what you have on config.sys or autoexc.bat file(s). i forget which one, but when you install apoc it should tell you which file to use. and you managed to get apoc running in XP!?!?!?! please, tell us how!

ok look.....for XP it all really depends on what kinda hardware u got......and like i said before...when u add DDR RAM, it increases your buffers (memory)
in my XP computer i have two 256MB DDR RAM cards loaded...in my 98 computer i have one 256MB DDR RAM card....buffers are usually always the problem...in XP without any RAM cards, your buffers are 0/40...with the two i have in there it is like 24/40...i'm not too sure on how to get a perfect 20/20...but i think it's if u put SD RAM cards in instead of DDR RAM.....or i think it will even go 20/20 if u fill all four slots with DDR....i do recomend that u get SD RAM though....though u can't use DDR and SD at the same time...and can only have one type loaded in there at a time...SD is better than DDR....anyways....though there is more RAM in my XP than there is my 98, the XP still lags....not too much, but enough to get on your nerves after a while....to finish this, all i'll say is if your gonna play apoc...use 98...
mine has only one DDR card and still runs better than my XP....k i'm dizzy now...

oh...and in order to have best results (even with low buffers) use like a
pentiumIII....mine is AMD DURAN...which is as good...u will have a hell of a time with putting it on XP with pentiumI's and II's...
