Dos PC Games Collection
Over 2800 Games
These are all your fav games from times gone by.
They run on any machine that can run a dos window.
Windows XP users should be able to run the games without any extra software.
Windows 32bit Vista users should also not need anything else.
Just unpack the games into a folder and run.
Any 64bit windows users or Windows 7 & 8 users will need to install DosBox to run the games, this is included on the disc.
After installing DosBox please read the included & online documents for information on mounting a hard drive.
There is provision in the config file to allow and "Autoexec" command for mounting a drive.
If you are old enough to remember these games then using Dos should not be a problem. :)
Make a folder somewhere on your system.
Run the batch file "DOSBox 0.74 Options.bat" in the dosbox installed folder, this will bring up notepad with the config file.
At the bottom of the file there is a "Autoexec" section add these lines
mount c c:\DOSboxfiles
Instead of "c:\DOSboxfiles" use the drive and folder you just made.
Unpack the games in this folder, within subfolder for each game, remembering that Dos only uses 8 characters for folder names with no spaces.
IE: a folder for the game "3d Table Sports" could be "3dtablesp"
To play the game run dosbox and type "CD 3dtablesp" to change into that folder, then run whatever the game EXE is called, to view the contents of the folder type dir.
