Not available here. "No go" means it isn't downloadable because it's either still sold or otherwise protected.

Yay! 1st post since unprotection! I've played the freecol version before, but it just didn't capture the "look and feel" of the original.

Now, if only I could figure out how to speed it up in DosBox...

Use ctrl-F11 and ctrl-F12 to toggle speed in DOSbox. Happy gaming!

One of my favorite games ever. I dnloaded it yesterday and thought to have a little go, just for the old time sake. Of course, I spent a few hours playing and saying 'That's it, just one more turn.'

Now I remember why I failed a few exams back in 90ies

I posted this in the Civ thread last week, I am an idiot. This is the right game thread.

I can't get this game to start. I am using DOSbox but every .exe I run from the download file just leads to a dead end.

the main .exe just gives me a message about Mini Extract Utility Version 2.04c

The install exe takes me to an install screen but I cant get it to work either.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for any help.

Colonization is one of the few games on Abandonia which require that you install it before you can play.

To install this game, you need to run the install program from a floppy drive. You thus need to mount a "A: -t floppy" drive before doing anything.

Happy gaming.

How does one go about doing that? I haven't seen a floppy drive in years, and the last time I tryed a program like DAEMON but for A: drive it didn't work too well.

In fact you don't really need to mount a floppy, the install also works fine from something as:
c:\temp\ or whatever.....

Simply unzip all the files to your dosbox virtual C folder in let say a \temp\ folder , run dosbox, mount your virtual C, do a cd temp and run install.
Just tested it out, works fine.
But yes indeed, also works if you mount the temp folder as floppy drive.

BTW, also accept 'soundblaster pro' when asked, that's the right one.
