Question about Video Game Consoles & Games

Geoff Crammond's F1 GP4 (Microprose)

Hi mate.
I have this game since it came out on the market and from awhile ago I started do experiencing some problem when running the game - it simply crash without notice. I don't know if there's a bug or what, but the fact I've run it on olders laptops and never had the problem.
Now I have a Toshiba Tecra A7 with a ATI Mobility Radeon X1400 (512MB)... it run better, obviously, but it crashes!
I must do an upgrade on ATI but strangely I can't do so, the system doens't allow it (???).
Do you know if there's any upgrade to the game that my solve the problem and where I can find it?

Cheers from Portugal

I have had this game probably since it first came out. The game won't play now, I have installed it but when I press the icon to start the game it goes thru the introduction then just shuts down

I have several programs that will not longer work because they were developed for old versions of Microsoft. It probably is not compatible with the newer Microsoft version you have.

I am trying to install master of orion II on a windows 7 64 bit operating system and it won't open, because DPLAY.dll cannot be found. I have downloaded the driver, put it in the sys32 folder, the...


First install MOO2 on a computer were it runs and copy the entire micropose directory to the program files (x86) directory.

Then copy the dplayx.dll file from the windows\sysWOW64 directory and renamed it dplay.dll and put it back in the sysWOW64 directory (be sure the dplayx.dll file is still there) or if you have the 32 bit version it should be found in the system32 directory (I am guessing, but you will need a dplay.dll)

Found this great post about getting MOO2 to run in Windows 7, and even with the compatibility enabled it still has a graphics palette problem. The reason is because of Windows explorer, and to fix the problem you need to disable explorer.

I know this can be a little too much for some, there is an easier way.

Simply create a notepad file on your desktop, and paste the following.

(If you have 32-bit version of Windows 7.)

TASKKILL /F /IM "explorer.exe"
cd C:\"Program Files"\Microprose\Orion2
start /w C:\"Program Files"\Microprose\Orion2\Orion95.exe
start C:\Windows\explorer.exe

(Copy and paste below if you have 64-bit)

TASKKILL /F /IM "explorer.exe"
cd C:\"Program Files (x86)"\Microprose\Orion2
start /w C:\"Program Files (x86)"\Microprose\Orion2\Orion95.exe
start C:\Windows\explorer.exe

Make sure you rename the text file to Moo2.bat, then it will launch Moo2 and disable explorer. Moo2 plays perfectly fine this way, even without any of the compatibility enabled.

The Batch file will also restore your explorer when you exit the game.


Alternatively, you could use DosBox to play the game.

Hi, I have a whirlpool AWO/R4205 that will not fill with water and just tries to drain when starting any cycle and never moves on. The water Tap closed light was on earlier but has now gone out. I does...

all washing machine perform a drain cycle before any wash - that's just the norm geoff.

I'm assuming you'll be getting an F1 fault code

Sounds like the inlet solenoids have gone. get your multi meter on the solenoids - the readings should be around 3.4kOhms - 4.4kOhms

If this proves ok then you'll need to do a 'live test' on the power going to the solenoids at the start of the cycle. (Take all precautions so as not to give yourself a shock) you'll expect a reading of 180-230v

If the resistance across the solenoids are between the given values and you're getting power to them then the fault lies with the water supply.

If there is no power going to the solenoids at the start of a programme then you need to check wiring back to the CCU for continuity. If the continuity proves ok then you'll need to replace the programme timer mate
