Windows hooker - intercepts system calls to make fullscreen programs running in a window, to support a better compatibility, to enhance video modes and to stretch timing. It is tipically very useful to run old windows games.
- Run fullscreen programs in window
- Perform time stretching to slow down or speed up actions
- Add several compatibility options to support legacy programs
- Log operations, show program status and palette
I've been looking for something like this for years! I can finally play my old games the way o want. It just needs some time to get used to the loads of features but it works like a charm ;)
The DxWnd project is a very nice supplement to older PC games. Most PC games in the past didn't have a play in window option. I began using it and I was... HOOKED... just like the application has been designed to do. It's nice to see someone continuing the project to help make multitasking while gaming much easier. So, thanks gho! It still leaves room for improvement but doesn't everything? =D Good Day - All!
This is a wonderful program that makes old games playable on Windows 8.1 and on. Thanks so much for your hard work!
Does exactly what it's described to do: Making older programs and games work in windowed mode and sometimes even enables them to work at all on modern machines! gho is also really active in the forums.
DxWnd is amazing, without it I wouldn't even bother going back to revisit older games. It's a little daunting at first to setup because of the vast amount of options, but gho (the developer) is super helpful, just make a post about your game and he'll help you set the thing up, or he'll just fix DxWnd to work with your game. 6/5 Stars.
