Player Manager 2 works on XP with DosBox

Finally I could play PM2 (the normal one, not the chase for glory) on my XP, with help of DosBox.

But... the scroll during matches is really crappy!!! Was it that bad in the original? Or is it because DosBox doesnt emulate the game properly??

All I can say from playing the original Anstoss (On The Ball) via Dosbox (and not much is really moving in the match gfx of this manager game) that Dosbox is still very slow. Did you up the CPU cycles and Skip Frames? That made my game bearable, but since it isn't an action game, that is not saying much...

hmmm

1st post :P

Does anyone know how to get rid of the black screen, that appears when I "watch" or "fast scanner" the game in PM2, with DosBox?

Thanks!

I have no problem running the pm2 of the underdog site, but it runs in VGA mode and the graphics are terrible.

The PM2 I have is being run directly from the cd and runs in SVGA. Everything is like 8 years ago, except the matches, which I cannot see :(

you should stick with the original PM imo, PM2 is one of the worst soccer (footy) arcade games ever.
