I'm unable to fully download it, the status in JDownloader for half of the .rar files is "not available," or "file not found"

You could try downloading them manually.

Hey thanks so much, I wasn't aware that was an option, and it totally worked. Now I just need to get the game working properly, for some odd reason the screen stays black unless I alt tab out and back in...only then does it show the screen. I can't actually play the game that way, that would mean alt tabbing every 3 seconds though :(

As you post the same question about your problems over several topics I gonna repeat myself here ...

Haz been answerred, but it's kinda burried in the topic...
I'm not sure about Dosbox+win3.x because game is not designed for win3.x
And yet it works in dosbox 0.74/W3

Crap, those Danish villagers are kicking my Norwegian ar*e
But works better (read: smoother-better sounds *I think*) in VPC-W98SE

Notice: VfW 1.1 (Video for Windows) must be installed, the game needs it.
If it's advisable to install that obsolete VfW 1.1 on modern hardware, is arguable.
Me thinks you're better safe than sorry and run it in VPC (or dosbox-W3.1)

My two cents.
BTW: I don't like the game, at all, I won't spend more time on it.
Something that can help you:

That or VPC2007/W98Se (or W95)

I'm just wondering if any one knows how to install this? I manage to get win 3 running on dosbox, went and installed the game wanted me to install video so i did but it didn't install the game because it says the exe is missing from the folder it installed to and when i checked it just put folders there but no exe or other files? So did any one get this game up and running? :unsure:
