DOS Gin Game (Ginking)

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Games' started by Gene Janowski, Oct 16, 2008.

  1. I have a 15-year-old DOS gin game called Ginking. I lost the instal
    floppy disk years ago but have been able to copy the game from compute
    to computer, until I get Vista. I copied the game to Vista but when
    tried to open it I got this message:

    16 bit MS-DOS Subsystem

    This system does not support fullscreen mode. Choose ‘Close’ t
    terminate the application.

    Close/Ignore

    When I close it, it closes. When I Ignore it I get the followin
    message:

    NTVDM.EXE has stopped working

    A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows wil
    close the program and notify you if a solution is available.

    I really miss this game. I was hoping to have it by Christmas becaus
    on Christmas Day the King of Spades changes to Santa Clause all day
    The original game also had Backgammon, Cribbage, and Checkers.

    I'd appreciate any help I can get. Thanks

    On the Twelfth day of Christmas ,
    my Apple gave to me
    Twelve blown-out circuits
    Eleven damaged diskettes
    Ten disk-drive lockouts
    Nine burnt-out fuses
    Eight worthless printouts
    Seven system resets
    Six I/O spasms
    Five Blank Cassettes
    Four garbled SAVEs
    Three loose plugs
    Two keyboard bounces
    And a glitch on the video screen
