Geeze, most people that post in this forum are total IDIOTS/N00bs.

- If you have problems trying to run DOSBOX, RTFM! Its made for noobs.

- If your factory lags and the game freezes, read page [4] of this forum how to fine tune your dox box config.

- I've noticed this version doesn't support multiplayer. The original had multiplayer it was very unstable, i gues thats why its removed.

Now for my problem.

After 3-4 mins in the game. It just bombs back into command promt of DOSBOX, with no error message or anything. Can someone please assist.

Hi Everybody! Greetings from Argentina. k:
Ive tried every possible way to make this game work properly. DosBOX isn't a good option as it freezes sooner or later (in my particular case when I try to build a cement factory). I followed the advice of some people in this forum and tried with Virtual Pc from Micro$oft. The game works flawlessly. It was quite complicated to make things work, but I learned how to do it and I'll explain it briefly:

You will need:

Virtual Pc
you can download a demo from:
Or buy it or get it somewhere else

Dos Virtual Machine Additions

You can use the Constructor version from this page (I copied the videos from my old cd so I could see them, the cd didn't work)

And the OS I use is FreeDOS
I've downloaded the Beta9 cd iso version

You can also use MsDos but I had problems installing it so I turned to FreeDOS
Im going to try with Windows 95 and the patch for constructor

Well, You should read the help file for using Virtual Machine (it isn't very hard) and create a Virtual disk in which you are going to insall the OS. Then, once you've done this, you should install the Dos Virtual Machine Additions. With this you will be able to share your physical computer folders with the virtual environment. In this case, you share the folder where Constructor is installed. Then, from the virtual PC you enter the folder and run the game.

I'd like to add that as far as I know this is the best way to run any Dos game because it doesn't eat your computer recourses as DosBOX does. Take into account that FreeDOS is compatible with most DOS programs, but not all.

Well this is....
My final task is to make the network work so I can play with friends this awesome game

Perhaps we will end reviving all computers so to play...but well, I hope this help you guys and if anybody knows anything about LAN game in Constructor (The option exists, as in the menu appears "Net not available" or something like that) or FreeDOS or Virtual PC please tell me

Good Luck!

Hi, i download this game before, and dont work in my ms-dos (i have Windows Milenium) but, i download again and download the DOSBOX, and run very good.
If you dont know how use DOSBOX, use the tutorial in the same page were you can download it.
