Ive been following the Tutorial for DosBox and all goes well until I have to install a game. I downloaded Flashback like it said but during extracting many of the files couldnt get extracted saying "unsupported compression method 9".

So I downloaded "Hitchhikers" and all went well but when i type "install" it says I have performed an illegal command.

I have followed the tutorial to the letter, have all the necessary files and folders and windows xp. Can anyone help me figure this out.

Thanks,
Tarryn

Flashback has already been explained in the Abandonia Games Discussion thread. It's compressed using a powerful variant of ZIP compression, but one undreadable by Windows XP. So go, get 7Zip or Total Commander, they read this format without any trouble.

As for THGTG, dunno. Tried rnning it from DosBox?

PS. Register. Now. It's an order.

It is very rare that you need to install a game which comes from Abadonnia. If anything the settings should be already set for DOSBox so try to start the game right away to see if it works.

Lore of Tom Henrik, stage 1: If the game was properly prepared, all config files should be erased.
