DOSBox
God bless this program that allows me to play all those classic PC games.

Just sharing the knowledge for those unaware and want to go back and play some ROGUE, Wasteland, X-Com, Master of Magic, etc like I do sometimes.

Combine DOSBox with some sites like abandonia and you got everything you need.

Anyone else know of some good games/places that you want to share?

Aye, DOSBox lets me play those old copies of Arena and Daggerfall. Can't survive without those!

Also use DOOM, DOOM 2, and Quake.

Not sure the problem you are having with it, any more information and I can probably walk you through the problems.

Here is a general setup and use walkthrough

I don't DL the old games, I still have all my old games for the pc upstairs in the loft, carefully packed away, waiting to exist again. Now all I have to do is find my copy of Beneath a Steel Sky.
