avengement This is resolved. Through help on another forum I figured out that I had to mount both the game files and the image together. Not just the game files.

Thanks.

DO NOT CHANGE THE MOUNT COMMANDS AFTER YOU INSTALL THE GAME.

Now you've suddenly decided to mount the dosbox\games path as the D-drive and try to start the game. That's why you get this error. You installed the game to the C-drive and the CD-ROM (the img-file) was the D-drive.

Game plain tell you "I want my CD".

So you need a) installed game and b) mounted CD.

When you have both (game on C, CD on D) - game works. If you mount game only - guess it.
Changed it.

avengement I finally made some progress:



After the game was installed I was brought back to the DOSBox interface.

Command:

shock.exe

The game played.

I closeed it out and went to run the game a second time and am now getting the following error after changing to the standard run command:

And to start the game:
Code:
mount c c:\progra~1\dosbox\games
imgmount d c:\progra~1\dosbox\games\fshock\terminator.img -t cdrom
c:
cd fshock
shock.exe
You really shouldn't install the game in C:\Program Files (x86)\ , C:\Program Files or C:\Windows because those directories (and everything in them) are write protected by default (meaning that DOSBox can't create or edit the files unless you run DOSBox as administrator).

Also, don't use file/folder names longer that 8 characters inside DOSBox (you can use long file names in the mount commands, just wrap the paths inside quotation marks "").
Thanks for the reply.

Your commands do not work though:




I'm also running as an administrator so I'm not conerned about permissions.

Like I said, I've used DOSBox without any issues but installing this IMG file has given me nothing but problems.

[SOLVED] Can''t execute Terminator Future Shock

Hello,

I have used dosbox in the past without any issues, however, I have never done so with a .img file.

Today I tried for the first time and got as far as installing the game but when I try to then run the .exe file that was installed in the directory I am receiving the following error:

"Make sure the TFS-cd is in your drive and ready."


Here's a rundown of everything so that you can understand exactly what I have done:

The file path where the game is installed:

C:\Program Files\DOSBox\Games\Terminator

To initially install the game:

mount c c:\progra~1\dosbox\games\terminator
imgmount d c:\progra~1\dosbox\games\terminator\terminator.img -t iso
d:
dir
install.exe

The game installer then started and I selected "soundblaster 16" as the sound card. Tested the sound and it was good.

I was then brought back to the dosbox interface.

I then used the following commands like I do with all my other games to start them:

mount c c:\progra~1\dosbox\games
c:
cd termin~1
shock.exe

That's when I then get the error and do not know how to proceed.



I have done a ton of googling and can't seem to find the solution.

I have read the "60 seconds guide to dosbox" several times as well.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.
