Windows 8 64 bit wont work on my pc
For somehow when I start, it freeze after the game is loaded, which is where it stops where all you see is the picture menu of a guy shooting a monster demon. Can someone help me?

Same issue here. Anyone have a workaround? Maybe a 'run as admin' thing.. not sure.

Dang, I am in the same boat. I'm not sure if it's a compatibility thing, and perhaps Dosbox doesn't run on Windows 8?

That's why I don't want Windows 8.
I'll just keep my Windows Lucky 7

I just had to figure this out for my kids - they both have W8 64 bit too.

Copy pasted from a previous thread:

Run it in compatibility mode for Windows 95

Then you have to edit both the doom2.cfg and Doom2m.cfg files to change this:


Then look down a little further and change this:


Now find Dosbox.cfg and change waitonerror to false as well.

BOTH files have these settings and BOTH files must be changed AND be the same.

If those dont work do this too:


in both doom2.cfg and doom2m.cfg.

Now when the game starts, to use fullscreen just hit Alt+Enter.

This is only for Doom II. I have not yet messed around with any other flavors of Doom on W8.
