Is it Win95 or DOS running under DOSBox?

It's windows, I don't even think I used a compat mode.

Its a tutorial on getting ROTH working via Virtual PC rather than DOSBox. To be honest, it probably applies to Bladerunner as well. The games were released around the same time.
Why would you want to install ROTH in Virtual PC? I have it running perfectly in DOSBox. Even with VESA modes (640x400 and 640x480).

Received the rest of the games I previously mentioned ordering. Joint Operation - TR plays great @ 1920x1080. It fully supports 16:9 widescreen with the 1.7.5.7 patch. All HOR+ with no HUD stretch. Pretty good for a 5+ year old game.

Need more suggestions!!!

Make sure you use that Duke3D remake thing that makes it true 3D and runs at high-res.

Here is my current list of games installed... not counting Steam. I spent a few hours gathering and creating box art for all of them.

I have almost as many old obscure games installed as recent ones.
