Yeah, BI2 has been one of my favorite games in 1994. I've been playing this all day and night long but somehow I never found the expansion. I've been so long looking for this really-hard to-get new missions !

Thanks!!! :thumbs:

I liked military maddness for turbo and this looks like it somewhat
I never got around to playing this,i tried once for like 10 mins and got annihilated.

Skillz one question did you play with the version from abandonia, or with your own copy from CD?

Because the copy protection makes your units weaker and your enemy's units stronger. Unfortunately the CD version no longer recognizes the original CD. It looks for mscdex.sys to be present in memory but DosBox doesnt have mscdex, so it fails the check.
In short, one has to use abandonia's version, even with the original CD.

A: To mount your CD-ROM in DOSBox you have to specify some additional options
when mounting the CD-ROM.
To enable CD-ROM support (includes MSCDEX):
- mount d f:\ -t cdrom (windows)
- mount d /media/cdrom -t cdrom (linux)

[...]

Q: The game/application can't find its CD-ROM.
A: Be sure to mount the CD-ROM with -t cdrom switch, this will enable the
MSCDEX interface required by DOS games to interface with CD-ROMs.

I'm using -t cdrom in my config
Game is way to hard maybe it's just that i suck at it

Have you played the original BI2 through? It's better to learn the ins and outs first so you know every trick. But you certainly don't suck at it, because the expansion is one of the most difficult games ever.

Btw do you know this when you've played a game for too long, you close your eyes and see hex fields and tanks? :)

I've stopped playing for now because I got nightmares at the mere sight of the next level!
Tell me when anyone has beaten WORINGA. These maps alternate between horrible and catastrophic difficulty.
Of course I'm playing on expert because this way the fun lasts longer. :thumbs:

Has anyone here beaten BRITIGI yet? I'm only on mission 6 out of 16. We could make a competition, which I'd loose, about who finishes the expansion CD first. :)
