Black Dahlia working - THANK YOU!!

Post by RandomManA » Mon 08 Apr, 2019 5:04 pm

On and off for the past couple of years, I've been on a weird sort of crusade to get the PC adventure game Black Dahlia working on modern computers. There have always been problems, from the mouse disappearing, to out-and-out crashes. And the only time I got it 100% working was two years ago on a Windows 98 virtual machine in one specific VM program with a TON of fixes and workarounds - until this weekend.

I read about this emulator on r/games, and decided to give it a shot. I emulated a Windows 95 machine with a Pentium 90 (after a Pentium 133 strained my 4.0Ghz processor to the limit - wow), installed Black Dahlia, and ran it. And it. Worked. Flawlessly. No video issues, no sound issues, no mouse issues. I played all the way through the first disc and part of the second, and I just wanted to make an account here to tell the devs how grateful I am to have a no-muss, no-fuss solution.

Game preservation is a huge concern of mine, and without people like you, games like Black Dahlia might get lost forever. Thanks for all your hard work in keeping that dream, and who knows how many other dreams just like mine, alive.
