You implied right in your second post "why did you change things i didn't tell you to change". I did not change anything there.

If I did, very well, but show me where, quote me please.

unfortunately I have yet another problem, this time with a specific game, Buck Rogers: Countdown to Doomsday. I have downloaded the game from Abandonia.

I get the error "Unexpected Error During Save: 3" whenever I try to click "Add Character", "Load Saved Game" or "yes", to save the character after character creation.

I have played the game before, without any errors, but suddenly the error is here.

My installation path for the game is "C:\BR1", and the save folder is "C:\BR1\SAVE". I have tried "C:\SAVE" as save folder and changed the path accordingly in the "BUCK" editor file. The error did not occur then, but my created characters were not saved.

My "BUCK" editor file looks currently like this: http://i41.tinypic.com/r2vqft.jpg

I have DOSBox 0.73 and winXP.

Thanks.

PS: I have read this thread: http://www.abandonia.com/vbullet/showthread.php?t=16748 but couldn't find a solution for my problem there.

if that doesn't work (and it probably won't=P) then do mind that your "buck editor file" is being ran in dosbox. therefore when you mount your c:\br1\ as C: directory, suddenly c:\br1\save becomes c:\save...

therefore you could move br1 to c:\dosgames\br1 and inside dosbox write
mount c c:\dosgames
c:
cd br1
start.exe

I already have a folder "C:\dosgames\BR1", and the BUCK edit says "C:\dosgames\BR1\SAVE\".

I get the same error there.
