Was downloading a few old DOS games that I found and I have been having problems running them. The top third of the game screen appears at the bottom of my screen, with the rest above it. (if that makes any sense). Apart from this, I have no other problems running the program. Someone told me to try runnning the display in 8 bit (or 256 colour mode) but this hasn't produced any results. I have toyed around with the properties menu for DOS but I can't seem to sort it out. Can anyone help?

Welcome to TSG....

Well not knowing anything about the computer you are running makers this a little bit difficult. If you could post some system specs on this computer it would be nice.

Ok then, thanks for the welcome.

I'm running a Dell Dimension PC with a Pentium 4 3GHz processor and 500 mb of RAM and I have Windows XP. Do you need anything more specific?

Ok so I downloaded DOSbox and the game now runs ok and the screen is fine, but then when I try and switch to full screen mode it goes back to the same problem. Any takers?
