Trying to find this game online do have the 5.25 disk for it (any one know good site to get 5.25 external please let me know also)

This game consists of going to woods fighting monsters, it like a choose your own adventure but do something interactive. Also includes going to dungeon to collecting coin without getting guard attention by pushing this combination something like this \=/ and trying to find staff/wand to defeat this wizard and getting some people to help you.

Hi there ! Welcome to the site...
It sounds a bit like "Veil of Darkness". But I' not sure what you mean with \=/. And because I don't think this combination has anything to do with VoD I might be totally wrong there.

When was the game released?
What kind of Graphics did the game have?
What is the view like? (top down, third person, side scroller etc.)

From the facts you were giving I conclude that the game must be a role-playing game. But am I right at this point?

Sorry for the late answer. But to be honest: I don't have the slightest clue about text-based rggs. Never played them in my childhood. And even today I don't play them much. Near to not at all...

Maybe you should build up an old system, extract the data from the disks and put them on your newer system. That would have the advantage that you could play all the dos-based games as they were conceived...

Text-based RPG? Might be one of those NetHack/Rogue-like/ADOM/Angband variants? I never played a text-based RPG, though, so it's just a guess.

Take into account that it wouldn't be unlikely for your floppies to be damaged.
