    Magic DosBox closes. Ive tried with CD and…that what would be full install, putting CD contents in Game folder. Has anyone been able to launch this game?
    Thankx a lot!

    Mh, I tried the demo, and it drops me back to the DOS prompt whenever I launch the game. I’ll have to do some testing on my Windows laptop to see if anything can be done about it.

    Dang, it’s doing the same on my PC. Seems to be a general DOSBox issue, not Magic Dosbox related. The weird thing is, according to the DOSBox compatibility list, it should run fine. Will do some more digging.

    No, I was being stupid. All I had to do was run the game with realms.bat instead of roth.exe. Demo is running fine in official DOSBox and Magic DOSBox.

    So, when you launch the game, what exactly happens? Does Magic Dosbox crash with a force close error message? Or are you simply dropped out of the game?

    Maybe you could also post your settings here, so we can have a closer look?

    I just re-read your inital post. Copying everything from CD to disk might not be the same as a full install. You should mount the cd image instead, and install the game from there within Magic Dosbox.

    Troubleshooting this issue is quite tricky, as I don’t own the game myself. According to Mobygames though, it shipped on 4 CDs, so you’ll need to mount all 4 of them, and swap them as needed. Or you can try to copy the contents of all 4 CDs to a folder on your phone, and mount that folder as CD-ROM. If you’re lucky that’ll work, and save you the hassle of handling multiple CD images. 🀞
