How can I run private investigator ?

Postby Dinomaniak » Sun Feb 03, 2019 4:48 am

Hi there,

Finally found a game - on this site. I used to play when I was very young, together with Warcraft 2 and the sorts.

The game is :
http://legendsworld.net/adventure/game/4704
other info :
https://www.mobygames.com/game/windows/private-investigator/techinfo

How can I run this ? I used PowerIso to mount the image, but the exes won't even start from dosbox, they say "this program requires windows" =/ . I tried running them in compatibility with Win95 , but that didn't seem to work either.

Found this -

The game works fine under Windows 3.11 and Windows 95. On more modern systems, the missing DISPDIB.DLL library may be required - and it will work fine in windowed mode, although there may be problems with the full-screen version of the arcade mode: the playing field simply will not be displayed. It can be solved either by launching the window version of the game, or through the Dosbox build with Windows 3.11 preinstalled. Also on modern systems there can be quite rare departures due to some sounds.
