I'm struggling to make the Old Doomsday 1.6 version (1.15.8) to run correctly on my dad's laptop with Windows XP Professional 32 bit SP3. I've searched for an old version of it to make it run on WinXP since all the builds hosted on the site requires Windows 7. Now, the program actually run on the laptop, but when I try to launch a game (all the wads has been settled correctly) I'm getting this runtime error:
Of course I didn't contact skyjake's email because I thought it was an old one and probably because I would't have received technical support on an old version, hence why I'm here.
I need to make it run on XP because my dad's laptop is too old to be able to support Win7 (and he wouldn't want to format just to make it run a newer version anyway). So, if there's a way out or if I'm missing something I would like to know that.
My dad is willing to play all the Doom games + Heretic and Hexen once again like the old times without using DOSBox emulation since it's very choppy and not really enjoyable as playing them with Doomsday Engine.
Thanks in advance.
