Dear community,

I recently learned that Tracked2 is a DOS program, and so it won't work in a 64-bit operating system (as it is 16-bit then I suppose), which I currently run (Windows 10 64-bit). However, this is the error I get when trying to run Tracked2.exe in DosBox 0.74-2.

EDIT: I tried setting DosBox to fullscreen, but to no avail.

EDIT2: Windows XP Mode works for Windows 7 to get it working. Solution for new computers is using Windows XP Mode in Windows 7. I downgraded from Windows 10 to Windows 7 and It plays nicer against Monster Truck Madness 1 & 2.

EDIT3: I guess I'll have to run it in Hyper-v or VirtualBox with Windows XP as a guest operating system, on a Windows 10 host.

EDIT4 (Solution!): I got TrackEd2 running under Windows 10 64-bit. It was all because of DosBox memory that was set to 16 MB. I changed it to 31-32 MB, and volia, it works fine now!
