Default Hello,I'm a newbie!

Hello to all of Abandonia! I decided to join this after some time.I found it while searching a site where I could download free full Re-Volt.This is the site of my dreams.So many good games,so little time to choose.About me: I'm a 13-year-old boy, I totally love games and forum and chat discussion.Also I have some technical problem: each time I download a "dosgame" I have some DOS programs and files.When I click something like INSTALL or SETUP or the DOS representing the game,it starts,then it closes with an error message,something with "unhandled exception".Can anyone please tell me what should I do?

It's a very common problem for anyone who tries to run these games on modern operating systems.
Fortunately, there is a program called DOSBox that solves it.
A Beginner's Guide to DOSBox should get you up to speed in no time.

Come on dosraider, you're supposed to be mature. You should know better than to maliciously threaten everyone who introduces themselves.

That's the problem. He's mature enough to be grumpy.

Welcome kid!
Nice to hear you like the good old stuff! HAve you gotten around to usnig DOSBox yet? It's not that hard and it does open up whole new/old worlds of gaming.
You can always ask for help and don't mind some grumpy people here... they won't bite... but they might spend a byte or two on poking fun at you.

Hey, mentally challenged just means you've taken up the mental challenge of our puzzle game section... So don't try to wiggle out of this one - you're just as insane as teh rest of us here
