Need help with War2 on my laptop!
« on: February 09, 2015, 03:25:16 PM »
First of all i'd like to introduce myself. I'm HyenaOnDrugs , 16-year-old from Serbia.
I was introduced to Warcraft II about 10 years ago by my 15 years older friend on his Sony Playstation 1. I've had a great and thrilling experience playing it then (Never got good enough tho)...
Few months ago i decided to get back into the game and get a laptop(year 2000.< for the true vintage feel) exclusively for Warcraft 2 and turn it into a Warcraft themed gaming machine... I've finally achieved that goal few days ago and got this baby :
It's not the original picture but it's the same model. Specifications:
-32mb of RAM
-600 or 800 mhz
-20 GB HDD
I don't actually remember which graphic card it has and i'm too lazy to look up for it now but it's not that important i guess...
It has Win98 installed by default which is awesome to me since i love that retro interface. Interesting thing is that the battery is 15+ years old and still manages to last for an hour!
Ok , so here's the deal. I wanted to install the game on it but :
1) Tried with the USB (Damn! USB memory isn't supported on Win98 unless you install the driver manually) - FAILED
2) Tried with the CD (Damn again! Realized the cd reader isn't working) - FAILED
3) Bought a floppy disk to test it if it works (Damn #3! I forgot that my PC doesn't have a floppy drive) - FAILED
4) Tried connecting the laptop to internet with the ethernet cable (...No ethernet port...) - FAILED
I noticed it does have the modem for the dial-up connection (Hooray) ,then i paid for 10 hours of the dial up internet and tried connecting *BUT* (Gosh ,something always gets wrong)... after connecting i get a few seconds of connection and then it disconnects (Tried multiple times)... I cannot even load up google before it goes off... I contacted the support yesterday and been chatting with them since but no solutions yet...
Ok , here's the question (Finally haha , sorry guys) :
Does anyone know a solution for the dial up problems OR a way to transfer the game from my pc to the laptop?
Thanks in advance !
EDIT : Sorry for my grammar, i know it's not good yet but i'm trying to improve it !
