    Ah, Constructor.

    Downloaded from The Underdogs, right? I got that to work... eventually. It's too slow in DOSBox, and won't work well with VDMSound on its own. The answer lies on this page:

    Good luck.

    I did what that page said. Try reading it properly, particularly this part:


    Constructor -DOS version (in winxp)

    1. Download the univbe modified drivers from here: http://home.student.utwente.nl/r.muller...index.html (in the video problems section).

    -Extract them and go to the \53a subfolder it created and copy the univbe.drv file from there to the game's /settings subfolder

    2. Download the "VESA 2.0 patch for Windows NT/2000/XP (09/21/ 2002)" (nolfb.zip) from here: http://www.advsys.net/ken/build.htm

    -Extract and place the files into the game's main folder.

    3. You can either use notepad to create a start.bat file like this:

    nolfb.com
    game.exe

    And then use VDMSound on setsound.bat (to configure the sound) and then use the Launcher's default VDMS config. on start.bat to play.

    OR

    Use VDMSound on setsound.bat (to configure the sound) and then on game.exe to play (but use the Launcher's "custom configuration" setup option to add this line:

    C:\full path to\NOLFB.COM

    [Note: If you do it this way, you have to use the full path even if nolfb.com is in the same directory as the game. Also, using the VDMS "autoexec.bat" box has a tendency (on my machine anyways) to crash Explorer if you are DblClicking on a VDMS shortcut.]

    ...into the "advanced" "dos environment" "autoexec.bat" box.

    4. If you receive an error about "networking" and/or experience a frozen mouse...

    Open c:\windows\system32\autoexec.nt with notepad and change:

    lh %SystemRoot%\system32\redir

    to this:

    REM lh %SystemRoot%\system32\redir

    and then save.

    [If you are actually using DOS networking for anything you will need to turn it back on later and this may or may not disable multiplayer in the game. VDMS's "enable low level networking" may also come into play (one way or the other) but I didn't think about that 'til now, so I don't know.]

    -If I didn't forget anything the game should work fine.

    Good Luck!
    I don't think downloading the version from The Underdogs is going to help you much. Nothing is fixed in that version - in fact, a lot of non-essentials are removed from the game.
