    Has anybody managed to get the demo located in the "Goodies" folder of the original CD to run?
    Located under (disk drive letter) : Fallout\Program\Goodies\
    I pulled up dosbox and tried to get it to run, but didn't have any success:

    I found this clip where Tim Cain says it's supposed to be a demo with a knight and I'm curious to see if I can get it to run at all:

    Sure. Tim [Mr. Tim Cain] used my video in his GDC talk.

    nah that's not what I was looking for, but thanks for the link :). I can probably figure that one out, but there's another demo on the original CD.


    That's awesome! How did you get it to run?

    Video is from 2007. Back then the OS was still able to run it without issues. :>

    Well I've been trying with dosbox, should I find my Win95 cd and make a virtual machine with it?

    guess will be quite tricky to do so. guess my old Winxp laptop should have a fair chance, but I'm not eager to blow the dust of it.
