Red face Ever wonder what SPISPOPD looked like?

I only found out about Hamumu within the last few years, and only recently bought any games. I found myself wondering what the original SPISPOPD game looked like, and did a little googling.

After getting DOSBox configured, I finally got the game up and running. I used FRAPS to capture the video, and my computer was not very cooperative. The video is fairly smooth, but the audio is very choppy. Not that that soundtrack was very essential, but it's a pretty bad capture.

That's my first Youtube video. Enjoy Bouapha's beginnings! I only played for a couple of minutes before it became clear that FRAPS wasn't going to agree with my rig. Maybe I configured things incorrectly. In any case, I thought that a few of my fellow Hamumu fans might enjoy seeing the game in action.


Edit: I can't stress enough how bad the audio sounds in the youtube video. It's totally my fault. Just turn it down all the way if you value your sanity.

Edit 2:
Kacper has inspired me to show you all how to get this running for yourself! First, you'll have to download the game itself. Go ahead and grab it here:
ftp://ftp.kiarchive.ru/pub/.1/msdos/...n/smash247.zip

This game was made Jamul a while back, but is not supported in any way by Hamumu software. It's old, and won't work on most machines. Not without a bit of tweaking, anyway. See below.

Within that file are 2 zip files. First make a folder named \Smash. Unzip Spis.zip into that folder. Then make a folder named \Voc WITHIN that \Smash folder. Unzip the Voc.zip into THAT folder. It's now properly installed! Put the \smash folder somewhere like C:\oldgames\smash, or something like that.

Now, go download DOSBox. In fact, just get this easy front-end program which simplifies DOSBox a whole lot:
http://dfendreloaded.sourceforge.net/
Current newest version is: http://downloads.sourceforge.net/dfe....4.1-Setup.exe

Install that. Easy enough, right?

Once you install it, click the "D-Fend Reloaded" icon on your desktop or wherever you put it, and you should see an empty D-Fend program window. Click on "Add" at the top (it's a button) and click on "Add with Wizard". Type in SPISPOPD (or whatever) in the Name field at the top, and select C:\oldgames (or whatever the base directory is) into the second field. Third field is "Program to be started". That would be C:\oldgames\smash\smash.exe in my case.

At this point, just hit "next" and "OK" at the bottom until you get back to the main D-Fend program. Double click "SPISPOPD" on the menu and you should be up and running. Enjoy!

95% of us will get it running doing JUST what I described. The other 5%... well, check the DOSBox wiki if you're courageous (http://www.dosbox.com/wiki/Index.php).

You know, you could have saved a lot of time by taking a look at the Hamumu Wiki...

Actually, there is an easier way, and doesn't need DOSBox at all, though it does require administrator acess.

Extract the zips so that the VOC folder is inside the main SPISPOPD folder, then do the following...
  1. Press Windows+R, and type "cmd" into the resulting box.
  2. Type cd [SPIPSOPD directory] into the box, then press enter. (directory being something like C:\SPISPOPD)
  3. Type command.com, press enter.
  4. Now type smash WORLD 2 225 then press enter. Change WORLD to whatever world you want to play.

Unfortunatly, this method disables the sound.

Well, I use DOSBox for a lot of other older games, and I think it's worth passing on how to get it installed. It's definitely one of my more used programs.

I do suggest trying out Mr. Onion's method, though, if you are so inclined. My method is only one way of going about playing it.

Thanks, guys!

Done!

I find myself wishing that there was a better repository of Jamul antiquity. Early builds of games, concept art (beyond what is in the Galleries in-game), unreleased games, etc. I get the impression there was a page like this before on hamumu.com, but it's gone now.
