    Default Problems running Lemmings

    I have the same problem as this guy and made the changes to the config.sys file(I think I did it right) and it made no difference, can someone help with this?
    http://www.dice.nl/Trouble/trouble_lemmings3D.htm
    This is a copy of my config.sys

    [menu]
    menuitem=CD, Start computer with CD-ROM support.
    menuitem=NOCD, Start computer without CD-ROM support.
    menuitem=HELP, View the Help file.
    menudefault=CD,30
    menucolor=7,0

    [CD]
    device=himem.sys /testmemff
    device=oakcdrom.sys /D:mscd001
    device=btdosm.sys
    device=flashpt.sys
    device=btcdrom.sys /D:mscd001
    device=aspi2dos.sys
    device=aspi8dos.sys
    device=aspi4dos.sys
    device=aspi8u2.sys
    device=aspicd.sys /D:mscd001

    [NOCD]
    device=himem.sys /testmemff

    [HELP]
    device=himem.sys /testmemff

    [COMMON]
    files=10
    buffers=10
    dos=high,umb
    stacks=9,256
    devicehigh=ramdrive.sys /E 2048
    lastdrive=z

    running win98se
    Cheers for the help, had lemmings years ago and I am sure I never had this problem. Anyone who has ever played lemmings will understand how keen I am to get this going!

    Hi I havent got 98 any more but from memory I believe this line...
    dos=high,umb

    Will need to be before these so Upper Memory Blocks can be utilized...
    Device=c:\dos\himem.sys/shadowramn/a20controln/testmemff
    Devicehigh= C:\windowsEMM386.exe ram

    Because Config.sys is an environment setting you would need to reboot for it to take effect. However, I cant remember whether Win98 over-rides config.sys so you may end up having to boot to real dos. If this is needed you can change the shortcut to the game (right click then properties) to go to real dos mode and theres options to enter your own config.sys and autoexec.bat settings in the properties as well.

    WTF? This board does some odd things at times. These should be on separate lines...

    Device=c:\dos\himem.sys/shadowramn/a20controln/testmemff

    Devicehigh= C:\windowsEMM386.exe ram

    While I thank you for your help I cant quite see what you are talking about. Is it possible that you could cut and paste my configsys and edit it in another post so I can then cut and paste it all to the file?

    Cheers

    Try moving everything (including the heading) under Common to just after the menu section. Im presuming when DOS sees this heading it runs that prior to running the particular option. If not, place before the menu section.

    This is how my configsys looks now

    [COMMON]
    files=10
    buffers=10
    Device=c:\dos\himem.sys/shadowramn/a20controln/testmemff
    Devicehigh= C:\windowsEMM386.exe ram
    dos=high,umb
    stacks=9,256
    devicehigh=ramdrive.sys /E 2048
    lastdrive=z

    [menu]
    menuitem=CD, Start computer with CD-ROM support.
    menuitem=NOCD, Start computer without CD-ROM support.
    menuitem=HELP, View the Help file.
    menudefault=CD,30
    menucolor=7,0

    [CD]
    device=himem.sys /testmemff
    device=oakcdrom.sys /D:mscd001
    device=btdosm.sys
    device=flashpt.sys
    device=btcdrom.sys /D:mscd001
    device=aspi2dos.sys
    device=aspi8dos.sys
    device=aspi4dos.sys
    device=aspi8u2.sys
    device=aspicd.sys /D:mscd001

    [NOCD]
    device=himem.sys /testmemff

    [HELP]
    device=himem.sys /testmemff



    I tried running it from a dos shell and also from dos and still get the memory error, any other suggestions?

    Any other takers? I cant understand why I am having so many problems running such a simple game!

    The problem is that Windows doesnt like to release control while DOS games often need control over certain areas. You can try ticking to box in the shortcut properties that has something like ignore windows, however thats often not enough and you have to change the Config.sys. Worse comes to worse you may have to boot to DOS to play the game.

    Because XP doesnt have DOS anymore and I dont have the game its difficult to offer advice.

    Try removing the line with the word Common and see if it makes any difference.

    Have you tried disabling configsys altogether? (along with autoexecbat)
