    Old Dos/Win95 Games

    You know how all old Dos/Win95 games don't run very well on windows xp? They run slowly and not smoothly??

    I'm trying to run micro machines V3 on Windows Xp, but when the game starts, the graphics are really bad..The resolution is around 320x...Does anyone know anysolution for that? (Not necessarly for Micro Machine v3, but for any old Dos/Win 95 game)

    The old games are programmed using mode 13h, probably, so they would use a low res, like 320x240. There's no way to change it.
