  1. The game I am trying to play is from 1980

  2. This doesn't work if your game is really old and if your computer is a 64-bit system.
    I know, I tried this method and it didn't work.

  3. i typed C:>CD NAME OF YOUR GAME then i typed the actual name of my game but it was more than 8 characters long and then it told me to type cd NAME~1 i did that but it said Unable to change to NAME~1 idont know wat to do can u plz help

  14. Can you tell me why my TES:daggerfall game asks for a disk? My TES:Arena asks the same thing when i try to install it

  15. there is a space after type…. ensure you give a space between type and your windows….. and also after typin the letter for your windows…. put a : symbol….. 🙂

  16. now that is indeed a nice question…. answer is…. the same procedure applies for vista also…. 🙂

  17. you are welcome….. just rate the video high

  18. thankyou! that was for help! 😀

  19. if it is running in full screen hold ALT and press ENTER that will bring you to a shorter window…..

  20. How do you make dosbox run in a window ?

  21. All DosBox does is say "NO DPMI!" at you. Blows a hole in your little ad there.

  22. mount game is easy.
    if your game is in "C:blabla"
    just type in dosbox "mount c C:blabla" like this.
    and then type c: to move to your game folder.
    then type game`s file name.
    if you forgot? type "dir" to find that file.

  23. wat i suggest is you send the link of the game through a comment to this vid so i can try it out and tell you how to save…

  24. hey wats is a illegal command

  25. it mounts all by itself or go through the video again.
