I'm sure this has been addressed before, but since I am just now finding these old games.... I have downloaded a couple of game files and can't figure out how to run them. The file type is not recognized by XP. Is there a program I need to download in order to run the game files (most recent download was Cyber Empires)?
Thanks for any help.

Yes there are some programs you can download. Try DOSBox it's available somewhere on site.

Hmm, I think he meant something other. What do you mean with "The file type is not recognized by XP"? That you cannot find the executables to run the games?

I guess I'm looking for whatever I need to play the games. I have downloaded DOS Box but am not sure how to implement it under XP.

you need to rename them to .zip and unzip them first.

Thanks. I will give that a try as soon as I get back home (assuming I get a turn on the computer this evening).
