I think I'm being really dumb with this, but...
I downloaded and installed after extraction.
Yet everytime I try and run DWB.EXE it says it can't run in full screen mode.

So I've checked all compatibility things and even de-checked and switched things up to try and get it to work.

But to no avail.
I'm running Vista Home Premium.

I'd love to play this again... such nostalgia!

Help!!! I downloaded the game and installed it on my computer, and configured the sound card settings correctly,but wonder of wonders...when I run the program, I get no sound whatsoever! What gives? Everything else seems to work correctly. I have the sound card settings correct (I know because they work on my other games).And before I forget, where can I get a manuel for it?

Go to the ISO Cellar to download the full version.

discworld and discworld2 are currently for sale, running in all versions of windows from Classic Gaming Presents. does that mean that they are not abandonware.

No, it doesn't. That site is not a legitimate distributor. More than that, they're little more than a clever scam - once you read the fine print, it turns out what you're paying them for is a pre-made DOSBox configuration stuck onto a pirate copy of the game.

Same applies to their partner site Classic Patch .

Sorry for asking about this on here but can someone please tell me how to download the version from Home of the Underdogs that's supposed to have the voices? I only see the 'Search' button next to 'Where to get it:'... which links to Google and the top link being good ol' Abandonia. Is there not a direct link on HotU? Am I going blind?

I don't know how old the link is, maybe it was made before HotU went dismantled.

But as you know what to find and where, why don't you use a search engine to find it?
Btw, I'm pretty sure in the Isocellar section you can find the voiced version on Abandonia instead...

Question Issues with crashing

I recently downloaded Abandonia's Discworld. I've been playing with no problem (except for the game crashing after I save), but every time I get to the cut scene of the dragon summoning when infiltrate the brotherhood, it crashes. They start chanting, you get a close up of one of the robed figures, he disappears and the music continues to a crescendo and then... nothing. It's silent and I'm staring at the background drapes. Has anyone else had this issue? I was so stoked to play this game, this is painful! Haha

(I am running DosBox on Windows 8)
