Default Found the old CD Rom... But i'm having trouble!

Hello everyone! I recently found my old Conqueror 1086 AD CDROM and I was so excited to play it. I used to play this game for hours as a kid! Everything downloaded smoothly but when I tried playing the game on windows 7 a window popped up titled "16 bit MS-DOS subsystem" saying: "I:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe This system does not support fullscreen mode. Choose close to terminate the application." (Obviously I use the I: drive instead of the traditional C: ). Please help!

I read the earlier posts and was wondering with the CD, do I need DOSBOX or Defender to run this program. I have already installed them just in case.

You need DOSBox.

You're trying to run conquer.bat. The notes at the end of the review tell you very clearly to run conquer.exe .

This game runs too fast on Dosbox when on the map screen...almost unplayable.

Thanks, the answer!

Yes, I did. I lowered the cycles almost to zero and it is still unplayable!
I wrote about this strange event to the DosBox too.
Somehow this game is not correctly synchronized with the Dosbox emu (on my computer to say the least of it) when it is on the map screen.

Interesting. Too bad about that, no more ideas from me.
