Null modem failure with Red Baron II. Windows 95 does not communicate
through comm ports via null modem cable. is not the only game that won't
work this way. None do (Close Combat, Sid Meier's Gettysburg, Red Alert,
Perfect General, etc.).
Cable is fine because a couple of these games if I boot under DOS. (That is
not an option with today's games.) I have moved the mouse around, too, and
it works in either serial port 1 or 2 but doesn't help problem. If I boot
under DOS, they work great.
Details: Several games that should support null modem play never make the
connection. I have tried this feature on some computers at work--no problem
(except it's not the place to play!). Even took a notebook computer home
and it failed there! Have checked Port Settings in the Control Panel and
tried various settings, too.
