Arena runs fine w/out DOSBox (except for sound, but I always have CD's playing), the only problem is that I can not attack. The manual says right click on the mouse controls the swing of the weapon. Well, I've tried every key and then some, and my character will not attack. Everything else works, run, jump, pilfer, etc. Any ideas? My mouse is: LogiTech TrackMan Marble Wheel.

Windows 98
400Mhz(or so) processor

Thanks for any help I can be given.

That's right, you need to right-click with the mouse, BUT - don't release the button after but hold it after have pressed, move the mouse along the screen, and the weapon will follow. That's how it should work.
A side notice, with that processor the game would run just too fast and you might encounter problems while playing as the enemies would move with the lightning speed and you'll be dead before you have seen it. Some other spots may be also too fast to enjoy the game.

Ah, ok. That would also explain enemies seemingly appearing outta nowhere.
Thanks for the information.

Oh yeah, would there then be a way to slow the game down?

You could try a CPU killer like MoSlo.
