But the game is installed in C:\DOSROOT\POOLRAD

The drive is mounted as MOUNT C: C:\DOSROOT.
can't you just change the config file then?

LOL OK. Actually you're right, I think the only missing step is to get the game from our site:

NO donation required to download!!
http://www.abandonia.com/en/games/61...+of+Krynn.html

I did the test with a fresh download.

Absolutely, you can change the config file. Years ago I changed the save directory to A: so I could save to floppy. I still have some of those long after those hard drives have failed.

@Japo perhaps you should add the info about that in the Review under Notes?

Yes I could, but it applies to several games with the same engine, so I think I'd prefer to move some of this to the Specific Games child board.

There is better solution: if you'll delete .cfg altogether, game will ask all needed questions again upon first start.

How are you starting the game? What command are you using, start.bat or st.exe? DOSBox mounts?

Make sure your game files aren't read-only
