I spent so much time trying to figure out how most of those old games work so that now I should buy term papers for me and my classmates who wasted their time as I did. I am looking for something similar to Dungeon Keepers, any ideas?
Starting the game W6 enter Game configuration, delete A: and exit. Ready.
Many gamers do not know where is their save file, namely savegame.dbs Easy.
Under Dos execute the command below
c:\>dir savegame.dbs /s enter
In my case the save file was found in
C:\>users\My user name\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\ProgramFiles\Oldgames\Wizardry6\C\Bane
I use Win 7. I use some Virtual machine.
Same procedure if You make video clips. ;)
I'm trying to save my progress on Wizardry Proving Grounds Of The Mad Overlord and the code only appears once I close the game window, and then it can only be seen for a couple seconds before disappearing(not enough time to copy the save code). How do I get around this? I've been waiting to beat this game for over 20 years and would love some help. Thanks.
Hello, I finally got The Dark Eye working and wanted to play it since I finally heard about it as well as some old reviews and it looks like a very underrated and very unique games. I was playing the begining and some parts just have a the character sitting there saying nothing, so I looking on youtube and seen there is talking during the scenes but when I'm playing it half of the sound just isn't there. Oldgames.sk provided a self installer as well, so I'm not sure what it would be. Any help would be greatly appreciated.... I've been dying to play this!
I'm trying to play Front Page Sports Football 95 and when it asks to calibrate my controller at the start. I do what it says (Hold joystick upper right and hit a button; etc) but wehen I go to play it seems that I cant control my players? Any ideas?***Partial SOLVED** I CAN control players BUT, it keeps pulling to the right ..Is there somewhere I can mess with the config and redo my buttons?
I just downloaded this and unzipped it. Now what do I do to get it running? There is an image file that I do not know anything about. I think I need to do something with this but I need some help on what to do. When I click on it windows 7 indicates that I need to burn it to a disk. When I try that windows says that the file isn't valid. I hope someone can help. Thank you.
Just tryed this out and it worked. Right ckick on the Wing Commander shortcut and go to properties. In there you will see a tab call Compatibility. Click that and Check "Run this progran in", and choose Window Vista(Service Pack 2). After that check Privlege Level so you are running the program as an administrator. Click "Apply" and you are good to go.

I'm trying to play Wing Commander, the special addition, but it won't run. When I start the game, it gives me the option of selecting 1 or 2. Whichever one I select, it says "Loading Wing Commander. Please Wait....Expanded Memory Detected." And that's it. The game just freezes up and goes no further. What can I do to get it to work?
Hey guys, i've downloaded anvil of dawn and LOL1 with success, but LOL2 is 4 discs, and i cannot figure it out! I have winzip but once i dl the zip file i'm lost! I really wanna play this! I have windows 7 please help!!!!!
hi, I'm having trouble getting Princess Maker 2 to work on my Windows 7 computer. my computer is also fairly old, it's a Dell Inspiron 6000. not sure if it's relevant but more info is better than too little! if someone could walk me through the process or point out if I'm missing something or what, that would be great. I am downloading some updates right now (service pack 1, namely) and I'll try again after those install, but that might not be the problem.
I installed it and unzipped it but when I try to run the exe file the screen goes black with game music in the background. and nothing happens!
as someone ignorant in dos and emulators I must say that the packages in this site are wonderfully helpful!! thanks
I'm new to DosBox and I'm having trouble with a recently downloaded version of "The Lost Files of Sherlock Holmes: Curse of the Rose Tattoo" (phew, what a title).
Everything seems to be running smooth - game plays full-screen through the intro sequence no problem and I can control the main character - but I can't seem to save the game.
When I enter the save menu I can select and name the slot to save in, but as soon as I return to either the save or load menu (either after or before quitting the game) the slot will be empty. The only slot with a name is number one which from the beginning has been names www.oldgames.sk
So - can I possibly find a way to save internally through the game and/or does DosBox have a save function?
if you downloaded dosbox and the required dos game.then all you have to do is just drag game exe to dosbox
a game exe is file what starts up the game.
that what i always do
just drag to dosbox and it will play
how to drag?
first open up game folder.
then put the dosbox icon to desktop(if it is not there yet)
then just take exe file and drag with mouse to dosbox.
I have to admit that I'm completely clueless as to how to download/install these games. Isn't there a very clear, basic step-through for us DOS dummies? I JUST want to play the games..
I did manage to install DOSBox, am running Win 7 on a brand new ASUS G60 notebook. But that's as far as I got with the old games. I initially wanted to play Jack in the Dark. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
i am running windows vista.....downloaded the 7th guest preinstall and two discs? when i go to play through DOS window it asks me for the disc one, what do i do to play? i already read the preinstall help about instaling it to YOURFOLDER...it did not work! HELP PLEASE!!!!!!!!!
I downloaded this pkg and it won't run. It starts, says loading expanded memory ... then it hangs up. I tried some things but nothing seems to help. Any ideas? Buy the way your packages are great. I really like starting the games directly out of windows. Everything else I've downloaded works flawlessly.
Hi Bill. In Wizardry 6 is only one savegame slot - file "SAVEGAME.DBS" in main BANE directory. Directory "Saves" contains my backup saved games ;-)
In game, after "save" procedure, I manualy copy file SAVEGAME.DBS to other directory with new name...
How do I save a game? The game expects a 3.5 floppy disk to be present as drive C? I press return at the prompt and nothing happens. There are saved games that came with the download in the C:\BANE\SAVES directory. I cannot figure out how to get to these. Is it a DosBox setting or a game config setting?
I have recently joined this fine group and
at the risk of sounding ignorant, I recently downloaded the game "7th guest" and my problem is I can't get it to run.
When I try to run it through dosbox it says insert the 2nd disk, I have both files, but I can't get it to run. After hours of trying to get it to work in various ways, I have accomplished nothing save more frustration than one can shake a stick at. My question is, is there a tutorial for those of us who are a bit challenged in that area or can someone help walk me through how to install it? Or has anyone else had any of this same trouble with this game?
Thank you in advance.
As well as thank you for the prompt an professional manner in which this matter was handled.
