Dear Abandonia visitors: We are a small team that runs one of the largest DOS Games websites in the world. We have only 3 members of staff, but serve 450,000 users and have outgoing costs like any other top site for example: our servers, power, rent, programs, and staff. Abandonia is something special. It is a library of old games for you to download. It is like an old gaming arcade with all the old games in their original format. Abandonia is a place where you can find great old games and have fun four hours and years. To protect our independence, we are dependent of our friends using the site. We run on donations averaging around 6 USD (5 Euro). If everyone reading this gave the price of a cup of coffee, our fundraiser would be made easier. If Abandonia is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online for another year. Please help us forget fundraising and get back to Abandonia.

When Abandonia was founded it was to collect and present all old games where the copyright protection had been abandoned, hence the term ’abandonware’ and the site name Abandonia.com. We are still doing our best to keep the site open and free and will appreciate your support to help it stay that way.

‐ Thank you from the Abandonia Team

We are trying to make it easy for people in every country to donate. Please let us know how we could make it easier for you.

Please give whatever you can to help us.

Setting up DOSBox

Submitted by admin on 28. March 2008 - 12:56.

Now that we installed DOSBox, we have to set it up. We will make changes to autoexec.bat. Autoexec.bat is located at the bottom of the DOSBox configuration file.

Installation will create start program menu group called DOSBox-0.63 which will include program shortcut, default configuration shortcut, readme file and uninstall shortcuts.

Start menu program group

To setup our installation, we will select DOSBox.conf. This configuration file is loaded only if you start DOSBox from start menu!

Select DOSBox.conf

Configuration file will open in your default text editor (usually Notepad). Use side scroll to move to bottom of the file, as we will edit only autoexec. Autoexec will run as soon as we start DOSBox, and we like to mount drives in configuration so that we don't have to mount them every time we start DOSBox.

Below "#Lines in this section will be run at startup" type next commands:

mount C C:\DOS\CDrive
mount D D:\ -t cdrom (or any other letter of your CD drive)
C:
CLS
Your file should look like this:

Edit the config file

First line tells DOSBox to mount C:\DOS\CDrive as C drive. In other words, when you start DOSBox, your C drive hard disk will be actually subfolder CDrive. Second line will mount your CDRom. If your CD rom has different letter then D, change it according to your CD Drive letter (for example if it is E, change D:\ to E:\)
Next line tells DOSBox that we like to use C drive. This line is necessary, as DOSBox alone starts at Z drive. We can't install games or play them from Z drive, as that's system drive.

Bottom line is optional, and it will only clear the screen.

NOTE: When changing between different drives in DOSBox, do not type "cd c:", but only "c:".

Save your configuration by selecting save from file menu.

Save configuration

We are done with setting up DOSBox, so you can close notepad.
