Help emulating early Windows games

Recommended Posts

Hey guys! Wondering if anyone out there has some advice for me on how to get old Windows games launching and running through Launchbox (most likely through a VM of some sort like exoDOS collection uses) @eXo might actually be the best person to assist :)

My setup:

Modern Win10 machine, 16GB RAM, GTX 1080 GPU,  Z270X-Gaming K5 mobo, i7-7700K CPU. I used Launchbox configured with just about every handheld, console, MAME, and the latest eXoDOS collection, so I'm hoping I have the required tools already installed and just a bit of direction in how to setup/launch them with something not pre-configured by eXo :)

 

The games (or at least a few) that I'm looking to get working are:

That's pretty much it.. any help and advice people have got is much appreciated!

Thanks ^_^

For post Windows 3.1 games, you could check out PCem. If you google for tutorials there are a couple really good sites with files you will need as well.

I set it up a few weeks ago and it was pretty painless, but not something I wanted to keep on my cabinet. (Just didn't mesh well)

I stopped at running  Win 3.1 games since they fit in, start fast and boot directly into them using DOSBox

Please don't link to games unless they are official freeware, "abandonware" is not a real thing.

Most of these games were Win95 - WinXP era

PCem for Win95+
 

Virtual machine is another option but it depends on your needs and what kind of interface you want.
