I think it's the version I have uploaded a while back. Not sure, will have to check out.

Anyway, the game runs perfectly fine WITHOUT DosBox. It experiences severe graphic bugs when running in DosBox, too.

i reviewed this one. but never tried it without dosbox. shame on me :P. newayz fifth horseman is right. game shouldn't be run under dosbox. you can still hear sounds with winxp plus graphics arent buggy. and i also forgot to mention that it is enough to type any letter and hit enter to pass copy protection. one more thing: game is 286 kb not 818. i'll be more then thankful if somebody can correct these for me in review page

There seems to be a bug which doesn't allow you to select the ship you wish to target during combat when run on XP.

If you like this game it's been revised by Thurston Searfoss the original QQP creator.

I ran into the same problem. The issue has to do with the mouse cursor flipping on and off in terms of being displayed. There's some discussion of this on the DosBox forums:


I recommend using the command line option "e" (disables EGA page flipping) if possible; so when you run the game, the command line would be "atsea e" rather than simply "atsea". The cursor should always show up now, but sometimes refreshing the screen will be slower.

The second link (http://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?t=8497#p55165) has a mouse driver file that will solve the issue (make sure the cursor is always displayed) for QQP games. You basically need to run it before running the game. There's probably a more elegant way to achieve this, but what I did was to put that mouse.com file in my Lost Admiral directory, and then I changed the dosbox shortcut to:

C:\Games\DOSBox-0.74\DOSBox.exe -conf "C:\Games\The Lost Admiral\dosbox-0.74.conf" "C:\Games\The Lost Admiral\atsea.exe" -c "mount d c:\games\thelos~1" -c "d:" -c "mouse"

It basically mounts the drive, then runs the mouse.com, then starts the game. As I said, there's probably a more elegant way to do it, but this also works for me.
