Somehow, I brought to run DSJ2 quite acceptable on my WinXP :D

Just wanted to know if some of you guys still play? I got no skill anymore, but it's fun for boring afternoons anyway... :D

I'm still playing DSJ2. And actually, I was looking for a right topic to ask for help...
I have had a big break in playing DSJ. I started playing it in 2001. I have never been a big jumper, but was able to make several close-K or beyond-K jumps on all hills - it went just OK. Later I changed my computer and haven't played DSJ for years...
In the meantime I tried DSJ3 and was very disappointed - I just couldn't play it. It was extremely difficult, nothing worked, I just "fell from the hill table" in every jump and often I wasn't even able to make a paralell landing. The graphics were a step forward, sure, but in terms of gameplay I found the game terrible.
Some months ago I recalled DSJ2, downloaded the game and found it can be run without problems through DOSBox/D-Fend Reloaded (I'm an avid retro player - Sierra adventures, Dizzy games, old platform and arcade games, Humongous Entertainment educational adventure games for children... - yes, I enjoy games and films for children even as a convinced childless 32-year-old). And I find coming back to this game almost as difficult as my unsucessful transition to DSJ3... Not a single jump beyond the K point. Most often I do jumps like 60 meters on K-135 or 75 meters on K-220. My record on the Czech hill is 112,5 m... Rarely do I fly high enough to see my shadow disappear for more than a while. I realize I probably take off at a very wrong point, but I keep trying and nothing works. When playing the game in 2001, I got the hang of it way easier...
The game works strangely slow. I have set the CPU speed for this game in D-Fend Reloaded at 45000 cycles (10000 is default) - seems still too slow, maybe it has some influence on my problems with playing the game - not just well, not even OK, but in a non-lamentable way...
I'm not a dexterous person, my tapping speed is below average, I have EXTREMELY bad handwriting, I drop items quite often - but it's not THAT bad, while I'm no arcade champion, I'm able to play arcade games on a reasonable level. And in case of this game - pure despair...

That's defenitely not a problem, having weak hands! I have same problem, i'm not a dexterous person too. But i was quite good in DSJ 4 some time. :mrgreen:
