Default Wizardry

Has anyone been able to play <u>Bane of the Cosmic Forge</u> or <u>Crusaders of the Dark Savant</u> on their XP based machine? I haven't been able to get it to run in XP and since my partition is NTFS, I cannot boot to DOS and run it from there.

Thanks!

dont know what those are but in XP DOS=command prompt
and im pretty sure it doesnt matter what partition type you have, its just that xp didnt come with the full out ms dos feature. Once again im not sure on any of this but that was just my understanding.

A few suggestions: DOSBox is a free DOS emulator mostly for games. I have only run the Linux version from a Kanotix (Linux on bootable CD). It ran my ancient Chessmaster 2000 game, which doesn't work in XP. Other options: Use Partition Magic, or QTParted from a Knoppix or Kanotix disk to shrink your ntfs partition and crate a FAT partition to set up a dual boot with DOS or Win9x. Warning: Back up your data if you are going to repartition. If your PC supports booting from USB drives (most newer computers do) you could install DOS on a USB flash drive or external hard drive.

Dosbox is cool, but it didn't work for me.

I think I have an old hard drive laying around that I can use.

Thanks for the help!
