Firstly, thanks to whoever created this dobox/Captive package. It has (until recently) worked brilliantly.
I've been playing it for about a week now, however when I start it now it will get to the pre-menu in dosbox where it asks you about sound/video options but it appears to have forgotten the previous configuration and its running incredibly slowly. It just freezes on that screen.
There was an error but I've been unable to catch it due to dosbox locking up the gui and me having to use the vulcan death grip to free my PC back to a usable state.
I don't know what other info to provide, please ask and I'll see what I can do.
hi guys, my names is Marco.
I have a question for you: is possible split downloaded dos games over 1,4mb on more floppies? I don't say a simple manual copy of files but i refer to the "old installation" like install.bat or setup.exe that call next floppy during the copy.
Hello. I am having the same problem as Chris (see the below post). I also would like to get a premium account via Paypal but can t see where to make the payment. I would like to donate so I can get Tie Fighter collectors edition, but I have also seen several other games of interest.
I've downloaded and installed the version of the game posted here complete with DosBox compatibility and it works great. It's a joy to have this old game from my youth running again. However, when I go to release a player—any player from any team—the game crashes back to Windows. I'm running Windows 7 64-bit. Any thoughts on how to solve this? I'd love to update my rosters for the next season.
Jussi: Ripper crash is now solved, there is new CD-ROM (ISO) image uploaded... Lorenzo: After install any of the packages (from v2.00), you can run the game by clicking on the icon on your desktop, OR by running the file "#play.game.bat" in game folder... Fred T: can you specify your OS (Windows) version, and send me save position? We can continue to solving this problem in the Dark Sun game card comments...
Hello to all,
I just installed the game flashback for windows 7 by running the package as an administrator. the problem is that after installation, I find no entry for Flashback in the start menu.
In the folder "C: \ Program Files (x86) \ OldGames.sk" I find the folder for Flashback, but I do not know how to run the game!
Could someone help me?
Thank you! :)
I have this problem: When I go to Dr. Burton's lab and try to go to second door my game crash and i got this message "error allocating 536911984bytes (1990524 left) in heap main heap". I try run it admin and try to use my laptop but nothing help. I really wanna finish this game. Can anyone help me?
For importing party to Wiz7, you must have the file "SAVEGAME.DBS" - save from Wiz6 after ending and teleporting party to Enchanted Forest.
Copy "SAVEGAME.DBS" to your Wiz7 directory and rename (change extension) to "SAVEGAME.BCF". In game import dialog check the proper path.
Default path and filename for example:
Directory = C:\DSAVANT\
Filename = SAVEGAME.BCF
i have downloaded both games and have recently finished bane of the cosmic forge and am having some difficulties importing my characters to the next game. how do i accomplish this? also i cannot seem to find the file where my game has been saved. thank you for any and all assistance in this matter.
Thank you for your reply, i did as you suggested, but the level problem still prevails... I was wondering that do i have to install the game from cd-iso image which came with the package as well? I installed to game package itself, but not cd-iso image, because the install file doesn't seem to work with my Windows 7...
How are you today? I am fine. Anyway, i downloaded Thunderscape from this site 2 days ago, game itself is running smoothly, no problems there. The real problem is that everytime i re-enter level where i just killed all the monsters previously, they seem to respawn, as well as the NPC's with their introduction dialogues, like i never have been in that level before. This really annoying when i want to go sell my goods to the previous levels i have to kill everybody all over again. Anybody have Thunderscape installed? I was wondering did i do something wrong with the installation process or something? Any help would be appreaciated. Thank you
I've downloaded Fable, and the characters cannot speak, although I hear other environment sounds like a running river for example. Also, when I change DOSbox to full screen, the colors invert or something. Have others used this game and had these problems?
Hi guys. I downloaded Carmageddon yesterday and it runs fine on my laptop until I switch to full screen. After a short while playing in full screen mode the colours go all crazy like I'm on acid (no I'm not talking about the acid power up in the game). I see what looks like a horizontal line swipes down from the top of the screen and once the line passes over an area the colours are messed up. Can anyone help me with this? I'm running Windows 7 professional on a Dell Inspiron 1520 laptop. Also when I go full screen there's a wide black border all round the screen. I can press the "+" key to enlarge the screen size but it won't go truly full screen.
I appreciate any suggestions and please try not to get too technical as I'm not versed that much in the inner workings of computers
For the life of me I cannot get DosBos 7.4 to work on my Windows 7, 64 bit. I tried to 1st get it to run but, it seems like it starts to laod then I see the Dosbox screen then it just closes the winodow. Also, I tried to add some games to the game folder and I guess I messed it all up. Is there a " noob " friendly how-to install DosBox for Windows 7? Thanks.***UPDATE** Got it running but CANNOT set XBOX 360 controller to the game???****I cant seem to reset my controller which keeps pulling to the left...hellllp..:)
Not to worry - have found another site www.replacementdocs.com that has stacks of documents for old games (these two sites need to get together as they have so much in common) off to start adventuring now, Cheers.
Just new to the site, have found treasures of the savage frontier for the first time in years (at last!) however having downloaded both the documents attached to the game they do not contain the journal the game refers to when attempting to start adventuring(ie you must enter the word # on page # after heading... ) I have the rule book and clue book only. Can someone please link me to a copy of the journal, Thanks
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.
Haveing problem configering a flight stick with TIE Figter - CD. I do alt-c and go thouhght the promps, but when I go to the main screen the pointer will not center at all. Unplug my trackball and kept the flightstick pluged, same problem. This is the only game that I have downloaded here that has this problem. X-Wing works fine.
OK, I have managed to get to the game playing, but can't seem to figure out how to choose which human I want to use. Is there instructions for game playing somewhere? I just don't remember it's been so long.
I know that Z is the fire key, and you move them with the arrow keys. The space bar goes between the men in the blocks at the bottom of the frame, but how to lock on your choice, I can't remember. Also can't remember how to pick something up or drop it. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Yes, I downloaded and installed from your package, so thank you very much. Can't wait to play it. It's been so long since the last time. It was may favorite PC game, but it was before we even had Internet connection here, and the PC was used for personal matters only, and a bit of game playing. I'll let you know how it goes.
Anyone have any suggestions here. Haven't played this game for a long time, and can't figure out how to get started. It says to match the image shown, and enter the 4-digit code to begin. Can't figure out how that is done. I've used the arrow keys, the number pad, anything I thought might work, and totally stumped. Any suggestions? I would love to have another go-round with this game. Have missed it for a long time.
I'm having trouble keeping the english.exe running it will run ok for 5-15 min then it will read about 30-100+ strings of code errors and shut down the Dos-box. In order to play it again I have to re-install the game and 90% of the time Dos-box as well. Any comments, fixes or a newer release of SpellCross would be greatly appreciated
I have been struggling with this for a while... Where are the character saves for Secret of the Silver Blades? Also, where are the save files? I downloaded the package here, but it appears that the characters' named files do not appear in a directory anywhere on my computer and though they appear in SOtSB's add menu after removal, neither they nor the actual saves appear in my folder structure under /save? I just want to move the characters' equipment over, as I hate starting of "blank" and built these up to SotSB's highest levels before planning to dual them in Pools of Darkness. But Pools cannot find any of them except the included DJ and Yenefer... which DO have save files... Help?
Do we have any experts on the old SSI gold box games here? I'm trying to move my PCs from the second gold box game, Curse of the Azure Bonds, to the third gold box game, Secret of the Silver Blades but I seem to be having trouble and I don't know why. Using CotAB I removed all of my PCs from the party so that they are saved PCs in Curse but for some reason I still cannot add them as new PCs in SotSB. I've tried using the menu to add PCs from Curse in SotSBs but for some reason it cannot find my PCs plus I have even tried to manually copy files from the Curse save directory to the Silver Blades save directory but nothing seems to work.
Both games were downloaded here and are the Old Games.sk editions of these games but for some reason I can't seem to transfer PCs from one game to the other and I would dearly love to since I've spent a lot of time building up these PCs. Can anyone offer any helpful suggestions?
I'm using windows and the .exe files found on this forum. Thanks.
I did a reinstall and for some reason the thing just started working so no problems and thanks for the help.
I've actually solved Pool and have downloaded Curse of the Azure Bonds from this site and I'm expecting it to be just as much fun as I remember back in the 80's/early90's. The only problem is I seem to be having trouble transferring my party from pool to curse. I'm sure this is an easy fix but I'm kind of a computer newb so any help would be appreciated.
If your system is Windows, try to download and play my (exe) package.
Otherwise - Solving the `Insert Disk 3` issue:
There is a POOL.CFG file in the directory
When you open this in Notepad you'll see the following lines.
You must adjust the config file yourself to the location where the files are relative to the dosbox mount.
Hey folks, new poster here. I've been trying to play the Pool of Radiance game using DosBox and everything boots up fine but when it comes time to create a new character I get a message to "insert disk 3 into c:\". Now, I remember shuffling through 8 floppy disks back when I used to play this game on my old C64 in the late 80's but all of the files are now in one directory on my hard drive (c:\poolrad) so why is it asking me for another disk? The game just totally freezes at this point and I don't know what to do. Can anyone please help?
