Welcome to GodSpeed support files!
Old Support Files
Running on Newest Windows and Mac OS
- For 32-bit Windows (typically Windows 95, 98, 2000 and XP), you may run BGS and GH directly
(You may need Notifix if you get corrupt NOTICE messages)
- For 64-bit Windows (typically Vista, 7 and 8), we use an emulator such as DosBox or ScummVM
See these links below
You also need "Notifix", a Win32 app that validates the NOTICE file
- For Macintosh,
You may also need Notice.zip and an unzip.exe tool or pkunzip, if your NOTICE got corrupt
Try running BGS.EXE directly or try GH.BAT
Please send us MAC feedback on your success, or with error message(s).
Download these four files to get you going (they will automatically fetch DosBox):
Copy or move the bat files into the folder with your BIBLE (GodSpeed) files.
On Windows XP and older this was C:\BIBLE
On Windows 7 and 8 we suggest C:\Users\yourusername or C:\Users\Public
Please send us feedback about your success or specific error message(s).
Once Notifix and the BAT files are in your GodSpeed folder,
double-click on any of the BAT files.
The first time, it will look for DosBox, and install if necessary.
If DosBox isn't present, it will load Internet Explorer to the downloads page.
If that didn't happen automatically, get it here
If the display is too small, you can load GsDosBox.conf into Notepad
and try changing "windowresolution"
If you goof up the file, delete it, and the bat will make one with defaults
These files pause at the end of each DosBox session, so you can detect errors more easily.
You may change the Pause to empty quotes in each bat file to eliminate the pause.
