Using my original CDs iso-ised to play on my netbook.

Using 'ddraw' display mode and 'sbpro2' audio as this seems to give best performance in both games. Oddly, No Regret seems to have a slightly higher framerate and less input lag. Not a big issue, since it's No Regret that I never finished and thus want to play...

... trouble is, the video cutscenes on No Regret stutter like hell and are unwatchable... tried using Big/Small Video options and 8Bit/16Bit Video options, nothing helps... and yet the fullscreen video on No Remorse was perfect.

Any ideas guys? I know the story isn't amazing in the sequel, but being able to watch the mission briefings at least would help!
Same problem here

I think they changed the video codecs (or whatever the dos equivalent was) for the sequel.

For what it's worth, I got the videos to work using a much higher cycle setting, but this renders the actual game unplayable. I guess the only hope is for improved auto-cycles in future dosbox versions.

Playing on my desktop is fine, BTW. Decent processor speed fixes everything (except Daggerfall) lol.

rjspring: Buy the GOG version.
I highly doubt that will solve anything. It's just the same thing running in a pre-configured dosbox, and most the GOG titles I've bought have needed tinkering with to work anyway.
I have the GOG version, in which I have the same problem. (I think it's dosbox related, my original Regret didn't use to to this - but that was way back when)
Try this DOSBox settings.

[sdl]
fullscreen=true
fulldouble=true
output=ddraw
mapperfile=mapper.txt

[render]
scaler=none

[cpu]
cycles=max
cycleup=1000
cycledown=1000

[mixer]
prebuffer=240

[midi]
device=default
config=

[sblaster]
irq=5
Thanks for that, I did finally give it a try but no real change in performance. I think Regret must use a more intensive video format which my netbook simply can't handle. I'll just have to get over it!
I have tried this settings and it works.
Basically I just copy what works in the Remorse and use it in the Regret.

Edit the dosboxREGRET.conf file and change the following:

output=overlay
memsize=32

I don't understand why but that works
Hey im planning on buying both games but i dont know if i should wait for a sale or just get em outright im new to GOG but i heard that when they do sales they usualy discount titles by the same dev/publisher so i just wanted to know what the chances are on origin or just the crusader games getting put on sale.

shit wrong topic
