    Classic Old Games.

    hi,
    this game may be old but it's a classic!

    1) at the terminal x@y:/$ sudo aptitude install dosbox
    2) create directory /prince with sudo. take ownership and relax all the permissions on that directory.
    3) visit abandonia and search for "prince"
    4) download it and unzip it into a newly created /prince directory.
    5) from the terminal start dosbox (DOS emulator)-- x@y:/$ dosbox
    6) within dosbox virtual mount the directory-- z:\> mount x /prince
    7) change to that virtual mounted drive-- z:\> x:
    8. start prince! x:\> prince

    NOTE: the text in bold are the strings to use.
    NOTE2: if the game appears slow within the dosbox / game hold down CONTROL and tap F12. you should see the cpu cycles: 3000 increase higher thus increasing the speed of the game
    NOTE3: if you can't get out of prince with ALT+TAB just press CONTROL + F1 two times to get a menu and get your mouse to start working again!
    NOTE4: CONTROL + F8 to quit!

    Kudos.

    PS. another classic game is DUNE 2 also found on the same website.

    Re: Classic Old Games.

    really good idea I was just looking around there and find some really nice games. On the other side I might suggest to use the Official DOSBox Game Launcher that makes life much easyer (in the original dosbox i just could not find : so there was no c: etc) other than that it comes with dosbox 0.65 cvs. The direction is

    good luck

    Dune 2 was such an awesome game. It was my first and is one of the best realtime strategy games I ever played. This truely was the mother of all modern RTS games. Somebody should do a 3D opensource remake of the original.

    Sands of Time runs OK with WINE. I have it and it's pretty good.

    Re: Prince of Persia! OMG!

    I'm not sure if I should be thanking you -- as I am now about to waste *colossal* amounts of time -- but Thank you!!!

    I didn't know of the existence of dosbox -- or that all these old games were available, and I am now embarking on a very pleasant trip down memory lane -- including even Adventure, which I used to play on my Vic-20 when I was a kid!!! And Dune -- a favourite when I was at Uni!

    Cheers!
