Your post seems to be missing some vital info: what game?
If it's Power Dolls:
The game from AB is pre-configured and ready to run in dosbox.
Unzip the folder in the archive, PDOLLS, and run with play, that's it.

If it's another game, now what game you're talking about?

Right, sorry.
Move the highlight to the top line, where it says "Installation". Press left or right arrow to change it to "Setup". This will modify the configuration and not attempt to reinstall the game.

Default Wow... just... wow

I dont usually waste time posting comments on random forums... but this one was worth it.

I've spent about 4-5 hours already today trying to get Monkey Island working on my DOSBOX, and every site I went to was a massive nerd trap.

I followed all your instructions, and well, jesus christ....

You... are.... GOD!!!!

Thank you for everything, I love you.

Red face Unable to create config file directory

Hi.
I am trying to run constructor through dosbox. i have the game files saved in a folder 'dosgames', where there is an .exe file called 'game'.

When my dosbox is open, i have typed:

mount c c:\dosgames
"Drive C is mounted as local directory c:\dosgames\

C:

this turns z:\> into

C:\>

then i type:

cd constr

this turns C:\> into

C:\constr>

and finally i type game.exe

at this point i either get a message saying 'cannot create config file directory', or dosbox closes on me.
Can anyone explain to a dos novice what i can do to get constructor running?
Cheers

If you are using Vista you should move the game files to your user directory or run doxbox as administrator. You could also check if some game files are "read only" (just right click -> properties). I hope this helps.
