Is there really a space in "C:\UTILS\ZIP 250"? That won't work.
No, there is no space at ZIP250 in the .conf! I do not know how could that get in there!

I put the %PATH%; into the path line and the program works now!
Thank you for your help!

Thank you!
Long ago I emulated a floppy drive with a software to install the 'Lands of Lore' game (+update) from disk images. But this emu. software is not installed in my Win10 system what I use now!
Sadly, I do not know how can I put the whole Utils directory (in DOSBox emulation) into the path.

This is my edit in the [autoexec] part of the DOSBox conf file.

[autoexec]
# Lines in this section will be run at startup.
# You can put your MOUNT lines here.

@REM ===== PPLT INITIALIZATION ==========
@SET PROPATS=D:\GUS_Inst\PPL160
@REM ===== PPLT INITIALIZATION ENDS =====

SET PATH=C:\ULTRASND;C:\UTILS;C:\UTILS\DN;C:\UTILS\ZIP 250;C:\UTILS\CDPLAYER;C:\UTILS\SEA;C:\UTILS\PSVIEW ;C:\UTILS\PLAYMID;C:\UTILS\DOSMID;

rem MOUNT A A:\ -t floppy
mount c F:\old\PCDOS
mount d K:\dosboxD
mount e N:\ -t cdrom
rem mixer CDAUDIO d-15 ; gus d-5

slx Thanks the answer!

So, step by step.
The program stars and I select the audio stuffs;
and the game starts and there is the intro with music but no speaking voice;
and the game should load the UI BUT shows only a black screen with some background sound.

I checked a video on youtube about this game and when the screen shows a purple animation
and after this becomes white
and after this black at that time MY DOSBox stays in that black state.
So, what you hear in the video I hear it too but there is no screen... only a black one.

slx I have a same problem as sylandro had long ago but I do not use D-Fend!

I quote sylandro:
When I run START.BAT it runs okay until the game starts (asks for language and music, shows the logo, shows the intro), and then I get a black screen when I'm supposed to be playing. The music plays so I have no idea what's going on. I have the directory properly mounted (as C:\PARATIME), by the way...

The SoundBlaster gives music but there is no speech.
I use Gravis, but in this program it does neither give music nor speech.
The SoundBlaster-ROLAND combo gives the same as the SB.

I copied the PARATIME folder onto the C virtual drive.
In my DOSBox config the CPU setting is in fixed state and every program runs fine except this.

I do not know what to do and what is the error.
