Hi Brian.

glad to help.

Certainly, there are landmark games in audio games developement, and classics just in considdering mainstream or independent games, it's just that sinse the entire audio games pl;aying and producing community is small even by internet independent standards, there are comparatively few games of each type.

That's another reason why we're always happy to help anyone who wants to learn.

As to the crashing, if your on a windows 7 machine, maany audio games were produced using vb 6 and direct x and if you don't have the components will crash.

On Jim kitchins' site, his winkit program which installs and runs all his games will also install many of the older components. Even if you don't fancy trying Jim's games, installing winkit might be a good idea sinse you can alwyas uninstall afterwards.

Audio quake remember is based upon the quake engine, and thus is itself an extremely old game and might well have issues running on post xp windows without the right components added.

fortunately, most major developers including Gma have updated their older games like shades of doom to run on modern versions of windows, so no worries there.

If you let us know what games you've tried, we might also be able to suggest some more specific fixes.


Beware the grue!
