Default Need help with Discworld II

Hi there,

I recently dug out my old cd copy of Discworld II: Missing Presumed...!? and I was vastly looking forward to playing it again, but it doesn't seem to want to play ball! When I run the autoplay and click the install button nothing happens, and attempting to run the install exe manually tells me that I have an incompatible version of windows, even running in compatibility mode!

If anyone has any advice to offer I would be most grateful, though I appreciate you guys mainly deal with DOSBox and downloads!

Cheers,
Joe

You can install the game in Dosbox and run it through Dosbox as well. This is going to be your best bet for playing the game. Have a read of this Tutorial and some of the others in the tutorials sub forum and you should be able to get it working rather easily.

Not a problem man, go and enjoy the game. If you do like the site think about signing up, you get access to a couple of extra features that make it worth while.
