Happy to help! If you want to take it further, you could request the 'manual' mentioned in the Trivia section, at the bottom of the MobyGames entry. The author is alive and well, and seemingly quite a ...

That would be "The Palace of Deceit: The Dragon's Plight" by Cliff Bleszinski, released in 1992. Not too sure if I may provide a link here, but a simple Google search would reveal the archiv ...

Alright, the process seems familiar enough, had to use similar .IMG and .ISO files for my Windows OS setups in DOSBox. All the necessary files are downloaded onto my laptop, just need to find some tim ...

Quadko, thank you for your trouble with VirtualPC, glad to see there's finally an option to enjoy Runner, apart from running an ancient OS machine. Are there any tutorials you recommend for getting it ...

Personally, I've never played this game nor even knew of its existence, yet the concept intrigues me, pieces of the Grail just lying around Laughing. Hopefully the developer is still around to share it ...

Thanks for testing it in XP32. At least it's confirming that the .DAT file isn't corrupted, despite the error message. I've downloaded the selfsame file to test it in both 3.11 and 95, original proble ...

The 0.74 DOSBox version that I'm running has been downloaded straight from the official DOSBOX websote as a Win32 installer, so I'm assuming it's vanilla. It's not an enhanced SVN build, AFAIK. It was ...
