You need to run it in DOSBox. Check the beginner guide here: http://www.abandonia.com/vbullet/showthread.php?t=14406

... fast forward to 2013 (whew! we made it) ...

I have the full version w/ speech that will work out of the box. I have submitted a request to upload to abandonia. Let them know if you want to see it. The thread is in the offers forums.

If you can't wait, just message me and I'll post a link (since all the other links in this thread have expired or been taken down).

Default Giving items

Sorry if I'm being dense here... I can't seem to GIVE an item.

I checked a let's play on Youtube and you're supposed to give the statuette to the gentleman thief in order to progress past the edge of the forest. In the let's play, the player was also confused and eventually worked out that you have to double right-click to do this. However, even this doesn't work for me in my Abandonia version run through DOSBox. Does anybody know what I'm doing wrong?

edit: nvm, I figured it out. It was obvious: you need to change cycles = auto into cycles = 6000 in the DOSBox options file.

I finally finished this game. Got the walkthrough from Gamefaqs. It isn't a bad game after all. A little bit glitchy though. It took me a short while on how to give stuff to people but I got it right. Too bad there wasn't a sequel.

I have a problem after the start with the fable.exe.
It happens with different sound setting and both with the FD and the CD versions too.
I changed the CPU settings of the DOSBOX (to 386 and 486) but it still gives the same error:

Maybe CPU too fast? Try setting a fixed cycles count (~10k). Also you can try replacing DOS4GW.EXE with dos32a.exe
