You need to use a utility called DOSBox. It emulates DOS so that you can play these older games almost perfectly. You can even control the speed on how each game runs, making it really easy to dial in a certain game so it will run like it did back in the day.

Another great utility is VDMSound. It emulates old soundcards(like the old SoundBlasters, and Adlib cards) and thus, makes it possible to play the games in full sound.

Let us know if you have anymore issues, :D

If you are using dosbox you have to mount your cd drive. when you mount it, it will say mscdex (something like that) installed. It can then read your cd and place in a directory. to mount your drive for example type mount d d:/ -t cdrom

Ok.

If you haven't made any changes, you should start out in a Z: drive directory. To change to you C: drive, all you have to do is type mount c c:\

If you want to always start dosbox up in the C: drive go to the dosbox.cfg in your start menu. Scroll all the way down to the bottom and type

Mount C C:\
C:

What I did was type

mount c c:\oldgames
c:

the oldgames was the folder on my C: drive containing all of my games that need to be played on dosbox. Hope this helped you out and good luck with the games.
