ok this is how i do it (yes it is legal)

unzip dosbox to the directory of your game (dont really have too you can unzip it anywhere) make a shortcut to it and put in

yourdrive:\yourfolder\dosbox.exe yourdrive:\yourgamefolder

with of course your real drives and directorys.... anyway this will "mount" the program to the directory of choice once you press ok run dosbox

in the box called 0.55 (version number) type this with of course your real program name (i find it works best without .exe and stuff so dont put that in at first)

yourprogramsname

you could also try this if it dont work quie right

yourprogramsname /g:bios /s:sm2

hope i helped Celebratory

oh btw it runs hard to run games like star control 2 (most people cant even get it to work in windows and those that can get no sound and it runs very slow at least mine ran very slow) with dosbox it runs normal and gets sound 8) happy day 8) (but you will probably need the /g:bio and /s:sm2 for it to work without very messed up graphics)

I'm fun, I just don't see the point of having the same argument twice.

Look, we have mods to keep the peace, to stop arguments, and to hold down flaming. It's obvious you hate not being to be able to do any of those, and that's too bad, 'cause we're gonna stop you.

Go ahead, start a flame war. It'll result in bannings, though.
