Not really a release, more like resources.

 

Anyway, an upload of a Games Ware House hard disk, approx 8.96GB. Possibly downloadable individually, I barely use google drive.

 

The games load up in a Windows 7 machine (taken from a Windows 2000 machine which is dated 2015 Version 19 or something) which I have tested it on.

 

The machines do not credit, and you cannot see the mouse cursor, maybe there is a work around for this?

 

Google Drive link... https://drive.google...oTm?usp=sharing

 

A few uploads failed, i.e. unreadable they don't look applicable to the games.

 

Any issues let me know.

Many thanks for this RHM, there are quite a few Game roms there that I didn't have.

There are a lot of SWP players that have been looking for a working Eggheads rom so fingers crossed one of the many emulators can run it.

I can't figure out how the emulator works, the game loads but I can't credit it. Advice on this is appreciated.

The majority of games only run on XP and 7 and there are a lot of files that need to be put into the Windows system folder.

The latest emulator has fixed the missing credit on some games but there are still a few like Eggheads, Megatouch World that don't run.

These need files that aren't in the games rom, there are some clever guys working on these but have had no luck.

Ok, we'll wait and see what happens then, i'm not dying to play them, just thought if they was there it would make a change.

I've spoken to the SWP experts and they are very excited about the prospect of finding some of the missing files they need and they thank you for making this available.

I have been asked if you could dump the windows system 32 folder as most of the dll files are stored in there and not on the GamesWarehouse part of the disk.

 

Thank you RHM.

A mate of mine (programmer) was asking where that was, I have basically cut and paste the contents of the HD from a HD reader so what was uploaded is what was there (what I could see).

I will ask some questions but I would have guessed that somewhere on that HD are the windows operating system folders, You've mentioned windows 2000 above and I can't remember using that but it can't be much different to 98 or xp. When a machine boots up it loads the windows operating system first and then the GW games, the dll files are loaded into the system32 or syswow64 folder.

I've stopped sharing the link as I have had naked men and women shared on my drive with me.

 

Thank you but I have a wife and am not interested.

 

The maturity of someone has cost the link.

Relisted as it didn't sell, maybe worth a bid if you're local or if they can post (mind you... probably cost £50 to post it).

Thanks,
