Description of Gateway II: Homeworld

Gateway II picks up right where Legend's classic Gateway left off, with even better plot and puzzles.

After retiring with fame and fortune from your last prospecting trip, an emergency meeting calls for your service again... this time to the Heechee Homeworld where you must help resurrect an ancient wise man and prevent intergalactic war. As in the first game, Gateway II faithfully captures Frederic Pohl's hard sci-fi classic, with excellent graphics and animation, well-written and engrossing plot, and many challenging by fair puzzles that involve high-tech gadgets and intution. Definitely one of the best hard sci-fi games ever made, Gateway II is a must play for every sci-fi fan.

Thanks Nocturnal, just confirmed it does work as advertised. I suggest though using D-Fend Reloaded, so you can do individual game settings. Not sure what this might do to other games, especially older ones.

To display text in SVGA edit your dosbox.conf and change "machine" in the [dosbox] section to
machine = svga_et4000

So has no one figured out how to get SVGA to show text? I'm wondering if maybe the copies going around the internet have been damaged, and there is no good copy. Or if Legend never actually did get SVGA mode properly configured.

Best game ever! 2017-04-16 4 points

for best results name the folder gateway2 and create a file called "legend.bat" containing "home vga blaster 7" I couldnt' get the svga mode working properly. there is also a walkthru text guide included
