I've installed the old school 'Street Wars/Mob Rule' game to my laptop. When I run the game, suddenly I can only heard the sound but no display.When I click Alt+Tab button to change a window, the game display appear for a while. It also happen with 'Neighbors from Hell' game. Is it because of screen resolution? My display is 1366 x 768 max and 800 x 600 min. Both games required only 640x480 graphic display.

What OS are you using? I'd assume these games expect/want something in the NT4 family. –  TZHX Sep 13 '13 at 12:00

The fact that it is available on GOG.com (Mob Rule) would indicate that it will work under DOSBox (since that's what GOG use). So either get hold of DOSBox and use that, or spring for a small amount of cash and get the GOG version.

So how does DOSbox work for the game? If I install the DOSbox, then should I re-install the game? Sorry, I really don't know the purpose and how to use it. –  user55216 Sep 13 '13 at 16:43
