Did you explicitly tell dosbox that your CD drive was a CD drive? You can't just mount a CD-ROM in dosbox, nor can you just point to the drive letter. If you already did this or don't want to do this, try copying the contents of the CD(s) to the hard drive and mount/point to the directory they're in.RandomManA said:I have tried everything I can think of, but I can't get the game to even INSTALL using DosBox, or VDMS, or compatibility modes, nothing works. It tries to determine the speed of my computer (the part where it'd normally show the Victory rotating lengthwise), instead, the screen blanks, and comes up again with those words I've come to despise: Exception 13.
Claims it's a bad CD read. Bollocks. My CD's are cleaner than Saint Mary's underwear.
Same thing, copy all the contents to the CD and just run a setup to configure the soundcard options.Unregistered said:The Problem I've having is, first of all installing Privateer on XP using DosBox, I have 10 G free but for some reason the disk space avaible appears to be -1. How can I solve this problem
Can you type "mem" in Dosbox to see if you have expanded memory (=EMS)Unregistered said:Ok the installation worked, now I'm getting an error that says,
"Protected mode driver is not responding to EMS function calls. Make sure your EMS driver is not configured with the NOEMS option, if it is replace the options "NOEMS" with "RAM".
Whats does this mean and how do I solve this problem
Yeah, you want to go in and edit your dosbox.conf file and change the ems=false to ems=true (if you previously changed it to get Armada or something to work).Confed said:Can you type "mem" in Dosbox to see if you have expanded memory (=EMS)
(extended is XMS!)
Solution: Get a legal copy of those games at ebay or so and install those games (via Dosbox, for example). - If you still have got probs after that, feel free to ask back again.Cobrafang said:I'm having difficulty installing WC1,WC2,Privater,Academy and Armada plus I d/l all of them.
