That's odd. Which version of DOSBox are you using and what are your mounts?

vista changed the privileges on directories and such. try putting stuff into your home directory, where you have full read/write access

I use Dosbox 0.72. I play the games by just put the start file over the desktop icon of Dosbox so that Dosbox mount the game by itself. Also when I just chose under options to delete the read protection of the file, when I open it again it activates the read protection again.

this might be rather a silly question, but did you extract the game first and then drag it to the dosbox icon?

we had a few cases when users just dragged the excutables from zip and wondered why doesn't it work

also, i created a list of files which should be inside the donald directory for you, so you can check if you have them
files

I love this game so much, I used to play it on our Atari 1040 ST with a brown "The Arcade" joystick.

Great times, gonna put this one on my dedicated Dos machine for sure.

Today I decided to treat myself with a cozy trip down the childhood memory lane and I finally managed to buy all the toys for the playground in Duckburg City Park and then got to enjoy playing with them as one of Donald's nephews.


And thus, this becomes the oldest game ever I managed to finish and at the same time the only game I finished which is older than me.


Once the child in me feel the need to play this again, I shall return and beat it in Advanced difficulty. Who knows, maybe I'll do it with a child of my own...that would really be something.

We're lucky Donald Duck's Playground is in our childhood memory lane. The way things are going now, you're better off raising your kids on Counterstrike.
