:shock:
Ok, THAT beats me. I haven't used DosBox for long, so I can't help you with that program. As for the message you typed. I have never even seen it before. Did the game work at all for you? Were you able to see the intro or did you just get a blank screen?

(Goes away to download the game from this site, and try it out for my self. Maybe I'll get some more ideas about what could be the problem).

Best thing to do is head over to the DOSBox forums and see what that means. Be sure to check if the game will run at all under DOSBox, if not they might get angry.

The only problems I have found can be considered small....

1. It takes some time for the game to load a video sequence. First time this happened I thought the game had locked up, because this does not happen in the original.
2. Some videos start and end in white and black.
3. The frame around the videos shows up and then disappears.
4. Animation can sometimes be slow.

But none of these flaws causes the game to halt.
Both sound and music works fine.

The only MAJOR problem I have discovered on the downloadable version is the inability to save the game! :? (BIG PROBLEM!!)

Is there a key you could press to make the DosBox save the game? (For instance the Nintendo Emulator uses the F5 key).

What did you do right before the game came to a stop?

Well.. on the first screen ( still in the temple ) i pressed the icon with the diskette and then i pressed the icon with the disk labed "S" and with the characters upon it... i assumed that this was the way to save the game.. but when i pressed it, it asked me a word from the manual... so this is the copy protection.

Exactly. This question is not supposed to appear! Since I do not have the english manual, I have no idea what the words the copy protection wants. (You get three tries, and then the game quits).

Luckily this is not the case with game number 1. No copy-protection.

That is why I was wondering if there was a key you could press to let the DosBox save the game instead.

The manual to the game is now available in the game section (below the map)!

It details minimum requirements for characters, magic in the game, hints and so forth. Check it out!

Default re Star Trail

Hope I am putting this in the right spot. I wanted it in the Star Trail section, but am not really familar with forums so I am sorry if I am doing something stupid - not the first time.

Anyway, I thank you for putting this download on the site and was looking forward to trying it. I tried it using Dosbox and starting the game using the Star.exe file and got the same message as someone else indicated - " Star Trail Guru Meditation Someone has destroyed the magic values for this block! system's integrity endangered" Weird!

I then tried installing it from a regular Dos command prompt within Windows XP and it asked whether disk 1 was in drive A or B. Since the file is all on drive C I couldn't choose either and it wouldn't install. I then tried starting the game with star.exe in the regular Dos command prompt and got the Star Trail Guru Meditation message.

Anyone figure this out?
