Can't get Bio Menace to run...
I've been able to do it before on DOSBox (until I forgot what I did), but whenever I run the game without the patch, the game freezes up. But when I ACTIVATE the patch, I can't figure out how to get out of the BIOPATCH file and back into the BIO file to run BMENACE1/2/3

Any help would be appreciated =)

Use the attached batch files to run the games. It will use the patch exe, then start the game.

I will definately test this game with the release executables next time.
The change that broke biomenace in 0.65 was so unrelated that I didn't expect it to affect any other game (the change was to fix a certain game).

Biomenace works fine so far on my PC (Windows 95 with extended and expanded memory) The only problems I've had so far are getting the game to use Adlib/Soundblaster, even though I start totally in DOS. When I start out, it defaults to PC sounds. Sometimes when I'm halfway through a level I can go back and reconfigure and then it will let me use Adlib/Soundblaster, but not always. PC sounds are so generic - you miss out on some really great sound effects, like when Snake changes into a green blob in BioMenace 2 and the sound he makes when he jumps.

My only other problem has to do with gameplay as in BioMenace 3, level 2, getting to the bonus area. I keep falling off the ladder when I'm tryinng to jump and get fried on the electric beam below. In the Circle of Death level, I can't finish the level without cheating, since the game doesn't let you keep grenades from a previous level and that's the only way to get past the last bunch of robots (for me anyway.)

But I still love this game.

What do you mean by cheating?

I use a code that's given in the BM-Hints file.

I forgot about that cheat. I thought you meant by cheating using the special moves. And I don't call that cheating, just like using special moves in Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat or Xenophage.

I just can't figure out any other way to get down to that last ledge without hitting a robot and getting killed. With grenades I can destroy all or most of them and create a gap large enough to jump into.

It's nice to know that doesn't make me a cheater, although I use cheats quite often.
