GTA 4: Camera will wave around like a scared teenager in a horror movie.
Crysis Warhead: Guns will be shooting out chickens.
Far Cry 4: Lost of FOV controls.
Earthbound: Game will get harder and froze at final boss and deletes your save files.

lol...  Developers still do that stuff?... So it's not just only pirated Amiga games .. I guess disc protection is just not what they want.

In Topic: No new executabes found

Just one .exe file , and it was the right one... No error codes..  Looking in /Logs doesn't shows any errors.. Issues surrounding this was because you needed quatz installed

Darkseed 2 is a Windows game though, not a dos game, and I do use VMWare Fusion on Mac, so which direction would you go? WHat advantage would Dosbox give me in this case?

In Topic: DirectX needed or not ?

any reason why wintricks is favorable over games that come with directx ?

The ones that come native with game usually come like that for a reason..

For eg.. under Windows XP SP3 despite it has DirectX 9c, NFSU fails because it needs particular dxd part of direct x installer it comes with..

Therefore wouldn't the game run better (i.e graphics artifacts etc intact) with native regardless weather being in a wrapper like winskin or not ?

eg  This works fine under Windows XP with "emulated" graphics driver, so m only conclution why it has artifacts under Winskin is because I "didn't"  install native direcx components.

Don’t waste your time with Wineskin for that game, you should be using dosbox

So separate dosbox ?
I was guessing since all my ported games are running successfully under Wineskin anyway,  I could add Darkseed II to this as well. If not natively in Wineskin, then perhaps run DosBox in wineskin running Windows XP, but then i fear too many things could go wrong... If needs be i'll just keep it separate.

i.e i could sound working is DosBox itself, so adding wineskin may be just causing more trouble, than it's worth.
