I found a little DOS emulator called DOSBOX the other day, and for those of you that don't want to buy an old 486 to enjoy your games this might be your answer.

Here is the url


So far every game I have tried has worked beautifly, you even get sound! Sure it isn't MT-32 but it is better than nothing.

I just stumbled across this and it seems like a mighty useful
tool. I've just started to use it, but hopefully I can now run
the Space Quest's 4-6 in my collection package. Somehow these
games wouldn't run on my 486 90Mhz...
Got it to work on an old crappy basket-game, can't wait to
try out the Sierra games not to mention Dune 2.

There's a guide on how to use DosBox for you at
http://vogons.zetafleet.com/viewtopic.php?t=2502

Hope this helps

Postby buni1161 » Sat Sep 18, 2004 8:04 am

has anyone had any luck doing this-I did as the instructions said-it suggested I change the files I want to use from "read-only" but the stupid computer won't let me do that-I've tried everything-I really want to play this game again-can anyone help me?

Work great for me. Ok a few things I need to know. What game are you trying to run. Is it a CD or disk. Have you tried mounting your D drive. When you mount your D: drive (or whatever your cd-drive is) When you load up dosbox type mount d d:\ -t cdrom. When you do this it should say MSDECX installed, something near that. This read the Cd and lets you install to a directory drive C: If you don't want to load up each file when you start up dosbox go to dosbox.conf this file should be in your dosbox file. Next when you open it go all the way to the bottom, This is an example from my files. At the bottom you should type this.

Mount c c:\oldgames (that is my file where my games are stored)
c:

Type this exactly as I showed just not the parenthesis.

This will load up the files automatically.

If you need anymore help just post here again and tell me the game you are trying to install and if it is a disk or cd. Certain games don't work at all that I have tried. For example Wing Commander 3 No voice on Laura Bow 2 and no voice in Freddy Pharkas.

I hoped that this helps you out, and good luck Enjoy the Games!
May the Farce Be With You!

I'm trying to run rama on xp-I know xp has its own emulator-and tried to install into that but the install won't work-so I tried dosbox-and dosbox won't work either-I've almost given up hope-
