Hi, I've been trying to get this game to work for a while now with no luck. My last attempt I ran into the problem of not coding the game to run from disk (as I have an original). I am not very good with setting up the dosbox though I'm running 0.74 as one of the post suggested I should. If I could get any help with getting the dosbox to run the game from disk that would be great. I'm using windows 8.

Well, first you install DOSBox.

Then when you run DOSBox, then the following:

mount c c:\
mount d d:\ -t cdrom

After those two commands, you can use it like the MS-DOS prompt.

Cheers#!!
