Default [kidbuu] Asghan The dragon slayer

help
I used to play this game when I was very little so I can't remember LOTS of detail.

It was a demo (don't know if it was released, probably not since I've been looking for ages). I played it on the very early 2000's (2001-2002) on a pentium computer running Windows 95 or 98.

It was a 3D first person game, like on a medieval age (or viking). I remember it was mainly set on some mountains in the night and you had a BOW (or crossbow). I remember you could pick some arrows from the ground at some point that let you fire 5 arrows at once.
The demo ended when you got on a boat with a lantern that looked more or less like this:


P.S: IT'S NOT HERETIC!!!!!

"Like this" wasn't submitted, I suppose.

Otherwise, check Witchaven maybe?

And no, it wasn't witchaven, but that was close. The game didn't have such fantasy, I think you only had human enemies.

Talking Where i am wrong, amigos? Japo, please

OK.
I tried to install Asghan, no result.
I used Daemon tools and when i pressed on _setup.exe, nothing happened.
I installed NGlide, no result.

Then i converted file asghan.nrg in asghan.iso using Izarc.
Then i created new directory in C, named game.
Then i copy/paste asghan.iso file in directory game in hdd C.

Then i started Dosbox, namely:

Z:>mount c c:\ Enter
answer: Z:>
I wrote
Z:>C: press Enter
answer
C:>
I wrote
C:>imgmount e c:>game\asghan.iso -t iso Enter
answer
C:>
again i made some change
C:>imgmount e c:>asghan.iso -t iso Enter
answer
C:>
Game not started.


Can You, dear mates, advice me?

Thank You

PC:I do have DWD.
I have only file asghan.nrg about 630 MB and some small file readme.txt (not sure).


Please, do not act after above text.
After started command DIR, i discovered that file asghan.iso is 1 KB only!!
So, mates, wait me.
Excuse me.

10 minutes later:
I recovered file asghan.iso in directory game to original value of about 630 MB and repeated execution in DosBox:

C:>imgmount e c:>game\asghan.iso -t iso Enter
answer
Could not load image file: c:\game\asghan.iso
MSCDEX: failure:Invalid file or unable to open

Then i give up.
Rats!!

It's a Windows game and I'm pretty sure the installer is a Windows executable as well. So, don't use DOSBox.

_setup.exe seems like an odd name for an installer (does it really have the underscore _ ?). Maybe there's another file that is the actual installer?

Can IZArc really convert an nrg image to iso? I doubt it. That's why you can't even mount the iso-image in DOSBox, the iso-image is corrupted.

Quote:
imgmount e c:>game\asghan.iso -t iso
I'm surprised that works (the > instead of a \ ). You should do it like this:
imgmount d c:\game\asghan.iso -t cdrom
But as I said because this is a Windows game using DOSBox does not help.

Dear Zirconi,

Thank You for Yr help.

Game was created 1999.

Pls see attachment.
File is really _setup.exe
No other installers.

imgmount d c:\game\asghan.iso -t cdrom
I try it. Same result.

Yes, i think the iso-image is corrupted.

Have You got some new ideas/ways to install that nice game?

Thank You very much in advance.

Have you tried play.exe?

Also, the file autorun.inf is a text file that defines which file (usually the installer) is automatically executed when the CD is inserted in a CD-drive.
