  1. Qemu 1.0.1 on Win2k

    Just zero out the last value. Yep I forgot about the 64bit processor requirement for the latest versions but AFAIK the host OS can still be 32bit. Here's a slightly older release if you still can't get it to work: http://vpsland.superglobalmegacorp.com/install/qemu10-i386-for-win2k.exe
  2. Qemu 1.0.1 on Win2k

    Hexediting qemu.exe (or any qemu executable) and replacing "freeaddrinfo","getaddrinfo", and "getnameinfo" with "gethostname" should work fine....at least it did last time I tried it. KQemu isn't supported any more with later versions of Qemu only IIRC Qemu 0.9x supports it so you are really better off with Vmware Workstation 7/Player 4 (using blackwingcat patches) if you need speed. AFAIK Vmware Workstation 8/Player 5 are not yet working on Windows 2000.
  3. KernelEx 4.5.2

    Qemu Manager v7.0 works in 98SE/ME/NT4 (with some modifications). Using that I booted up Tiny Core Linux v4.0.2 in 98SE today and loaded up Chrome and FireFox v7.0.1. So you can probably load up a 256mb RAM XP with IE8 installed under that and just use it for web browsing. See bottom post: http://vogons.zetafleet.com/viewtopic.php?p=248386#248386
  4. PE Tool for creating patches

    Are you guys doing any kind of debugging or is this just guesswork? Example: http://www.ndis.com/ndis-debugging/virtual/vmwaresetup.htm
  5. http://vogons.zetafleet.com/viewtopic.php?t=12102 I've tested the latest browsers on various versions of Windows in the above thread. If anyone has anything to add then post it here or at the linked thread. The TODO is listed in the second post.
  6. Crysis 2

    Since it runs on XP it should also be able to run on 2000. Try running the game and for any errors you receive then use Blackwingcat's KDW wrapper to fix those errors.
  7. Deus Ex 3

    I haven't tried it yet but considering it works in XP it should work in 2000 as well. IIRC Steam still works on Windows 2000 so you should be fine there. As for any other dependencies then just run the game and when you receive an error then use Blackwingcat's KDW Wrapper to solve the dependency issues. Just like with any PC game you should really go by the recommended requirements and not the minimum. You could probably get by with a dual core but it's really meant for quad or more. As for the graphics\videos they aren't OMG amazing since it's multiplatform but they are good enough and not worth complaining too much about although just like most multiplatform games you'll see alot of textures that aren't that great.

    WildBill, Could you offer a link to a bundle of all of your updates? Would make it easier for people new to the thread.

  10. You can actually use 2.0.4 on Windows 2000 but you'll need to download some modified files from Blackwingcat's website. Personally I'd stick with Vmware Player v3 which works on Windows 2000: http://win2kgaming.site90.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=553
  11. You can disable the licensing service. It won't affect functionality in any way it's just there for tracking your licenses. (and of course there are better ways to track licenses anyway).
  12. Don't do it unless you need to do it. I use it on log files and backups of SQL databases all the time at work (log file directories can get into the gigabytes if you have alot of logging and you like to keep a history). I've also used it on external USB drives that I use for personal use and have done so for the past 6 years with no issues. HD space is so cheap you really shouldn't have to worry about using NTFS compression on a server nowadays. If you are backing up alot of the same files you can look into SIS which can greatly reduce file storage requirements.
  13. Faster Startup For Windows 2000?

    Yes indeed, sorry of course you were quite right! The order that my operating systems were installed in is the "correct" one. I just wonder if it is actually possible for a dual boot system to work correctly if Windows 98 is on drive D: and Windows 2000 on drive C:. There is a MS KB acticle which actually goes into this - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/283433 You can you just need to make sure that C: is FAT16/FAT32. Used to do it all the time with 9X/NT4/2000 back in 1999/2000.
  14. XP Only Software and games on 2000

    I did see that. if you read my edit. my question was how to install it. and for mow I have to use it in the applications dir. but it would be nice for a way to install it so I dont need to copy files and stuff if I install something that not work. You create a subdirectory off of your root (can be anything) but let's called it 2KDLLS You then modify your variables in SYSTEM in Control Panel and add "C:\2KDLLS" to the end. You then uncompress the files in the wrapper and make note of the filenames. Now you copy the equivalent files from the SYSTEM32 directory to the C:\2KDLLS folder except you add "_ORG" to the filename. Example: So copy kernel32.dll from c:\winnt\system32 to c:\2KDLLS\kernel32_org.dll You then copy the wrapper .dll's to the game directory. The wrapper .dll in the game directory redirects to the reall .dll in C:\2KDLLS. This is in the text file included with the wrapper.
