Here are the four cwsdpmi.exe files you should try if you are having 'out of memory' crashes  or the more common 'crashes to a generic memory register errors' screen:
https://www.sendspace.com/file/zyhy9a
The pack contains:
1) option=0 version
2) option =4 high mem version
3) option =4 low mem version
4) option =4 ultra high mem version
Simply replace cwsdpmi.exe in your mugen folder to use the new memory parameters.
The one I would try first is the 'ultra high mem' version. If you are still getting memory crashes over and over again when you get to the same character, then that char must not like the option=4 so I would then try the 'option=0' version.
I guarantee one of these four cwsdpmi.exe will work for your old Dos-Mugen compilations/fullgames. If not send me the whole game and I'll take a look at it (I'm getting pretty good at this.........).

Thanks for those Oldschool gems!

Megaman and Strider mini games by Falchion22

Also this "Bastard!" game

Already offline ^^;

Thanks.

and replace the old one in the LSB folder. I went through each character and tested each one. Works great!

BTW, what to do with this upgrade patch?
Is the game still online somewhere? I don't understand...
So...

Glad you like them! I'll see about re-uploading those games later today.

As for LSB, that's the Last Samurai Battle game by Duracelleur. I simply replaced the cwsdpmi.exe file (located in the LSB folder where mugen.exe is located) with another one which had different parameters saved (parameters which gave Dos-Box even more memory to work with). This extra memory stopped those two characters from crashing the game when selected (would give a generic message and show memory register data).

The cwsdpmi.exe file holds the memory settings (parameters) to run these old Dos-Mugen games under Dos-Box LFN. I'm able to modify cwsdpmi.exe parameters using cwsparam.exe in the DosBox Command Line.

No need to do the 'patch' though as I've uploaded the 'patched' LSB game here:
https://www.sendspace.com/file/huhhzo
(cwsdpmi.exe is already saved with option flag = 4 and ultra high memory settings).

Simply drop the LSB folder in c:\ then replace dosbox.conf with the one I supplied (if you open it and scroll all the way to the bottom, you'll see it points to c:\LSB). Then start DosBox LFN and simply type mugen to launch the game. Any questions just ask!
