FPS Football Pro '97

Posted: 07-28-2004, 02:38 PM
Having trouble installing this Win95 game. Keeps giving a "divide by zero"
error. I remember my old 386 used to take over 30 minutes to sim a game on
the the original version of FPS Football. I'd really like to see how long
it would take on a newish rig. TIA!

Hi Bill,

That game is probably running to fast on your system. Is it a DOS game?

When a game is a DOS game, it could work using compatibility mode:
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=292533 or by using the Multiboot
bootdisk from: http://members.ozemail.com.au/~lpcd/downloads.html
and always check at fileplanet.com to see if there's a patch available,
or search at: http://www.avault.com/pcrl/patches_list.asp?letter=a :-)

With DOSBOX you can emulate a DOS computer on your XP desktop:
http://dosbox.sourceforge.net/information.php Or try MS Virtual PC:
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/v...oads/trial.asp
which allows you to install DOS or to run any operating system inside XP.

If you prefer to explore other advanced methods, here are two excellent
tutorials I've found on the subject: http://www.dosgames.com/xphints.php
and http://home.earthlink.net/~angeldancer27/XpGameList.htm For sound
issues use: http://www.ece.mcgill.ca/~vromas/vdmsound Good Luck! :-)
