After playing the previous Wizardries I bought Wizardry 7 right away. As usual the character creation aspect and developing your guys is probably the best out of any game. The fatal flaw with Wiz 7 were the puzzles. I never understood the need for all of these puzzles, making the game unenjoyable. I know a lot of people who liked the game but there were far too many pointless Myst type elements for me. Luckily Wiz 8 was much improved.

I think Wizardry 8 is little worse than Wizardry 7. Why? Because in Wizardry 7 you could avoid unwanted encounters by saving the game and reload it when you wanted to pass without the encounter (where there wasn't a fixed, must-be encounter, but a random one).
In Wizardry 8 this doesn't help. You can save the game before you see the creeps coming up the road and when you see them, reload, but the damned things will still appear at the same time on the same place! :angry:
Not that big problem at the beginning, but when you proceed further and the encounters always have at least 12 monsters in the group and you have to battle them every time again and again, this becomes rather stupid and depressing. Therefore I gave Wizardry 8 up at the time I reached the place with that upright-going squirrels living high in the trees (whatever they might be called). And I never wanted to play it again, to be honest. But I still play Wizardry 7 once in a time. It was a lot way more original and interesting at it's time than Wizardry 8.

First of all, when you mount the ISO, it becomes a letter attached that identifies it as a drive of his own. Now run install.exe, but not in DosBox. Do that in Windows's dos-prompt. Save the options. Now you need to mount in DosBox this drive letter and run wizardry.bat again. Should work now.

Thanks for your help
xp makes it really hard to play old games
maybe its because we should buy new games
with good graphics but no plot
so you have to play ten games to get the plot of one
they also stopped the support of win98 and winMe
where some games would still run good :crazy:

nevertheless
Wizardry 8 is not bad
except the thing, that some people wont
travel with you to special places
its just a classic game with a good paint :bye: :bye:

Do you save the game in the same directory you have the game in? If not, you also need to mount the directory where you suppose to save the games in. Actually, you can configure where to save games in the main menu or in the install.exe.
