King Graham over at Crius has tested the new version 0.61 DOSBox application for running old DOS games in Windows and other operating systems. Apparently there are some good bug fixes that help out a lot. The tech support fans at Crius have all sorts of tips to get everything from WC1 to Armada running on some level. This is critical as it becomes a way to run Privateer/RF/Armada in Windows XP! Sometimes sound can be difficult to get running, but other times you get added features such as the ability to use newer USB joysticks with the old games. A few WC games are even officially "supported" by the program.
