    Okay, I resolved the issue.
    It was an 1d10t error on my part.

    Admin, there is no iso file.

    Nope, I didn’t have SVN enabled.

    Oh, well. Honestly, the game really isn’t as good as the first one anyway!

    It’s just that thing where you can’t get something to work and it becomes more about getting it to work than actually playing the game. Haha

    I appreciate all the help. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if the issue is user error on my part.

    The first game, Shattered Lands, is a really great RPG. You get both in one collection on GOG. It goes on sale fairly often for like $5.
    If you ever get the game, I’ll be very curious to know if you find a solution.

    Thanks again!

    I can change to drive D no problem.
    I don’t have an sd card, just the internal storage of the phonem. It’s a OnePlus 7 pro. No SD card possible, just the 256 gb it comes with.

    So my path is “drive D is mounted as /storage/emulated/0/dosgames/Ravager/game.ins”

    When I change to D: and type “Ravager,” it just crashes. Seems like that should run the game, but it just doesn’t work.
    In the game files, there’s a ravager.bat and a dsun.exe.
    I could have sworn I used to just type dsun and it would run many years ago when I played the game on actual dos.
    Anyway, when I mount the d drive as you described and switch to D: and try typing dsun, I get this:

    DARKSAVE.GFF to DARKRUN.GFF failed. Path = D:\

    I followed your instructions and applying the mounting instructions worked exactly as they should.
    But when I go to run the game, it just crashes me out of dosbox.
    I tried running it with and without running the sound setup and the patch, every different combination. The crash is the same each time when I change to the Ravager directory and run the ravager.bat.
    It still doesn’t even recognize the dsun.exe.
    Very weird!

    As far as I can tell, there doesn’t seem to be a CD image file. That would be an iso file, right?

    Whether or not I get it running, I really appreciate your help. I feel like I’m now a little better equipped to deal with future problems with other games just knowing about the expert commands feature.

    Ah, I see! I don’t know how I missed that.
    That did the trick. Thanks!

    Thanks for the quick response!

    I fiddled around with it last night and found a solution for Shattered Lands. I’m going to post it here in case anyone else has problems with it and they find this post. The solution is simple.

    I ran the sound_ds.exe and did the sound setup. Then I ran dsun.exe and the game worked normally. That’s it.

    As for Wake of the Ravager, I did some reading on it and it turns out the game itself has some fundamental problems unrelated to dosbox. Apparently it was really buggy at launch.
    The GOG version comes with a patch.exe.
    I tried running the patch and the sound_ds.exe with no luck. Tried it in different orders, nothing.
    But the game does run on my laptop.

    Here’s the autoexec portion of the Wake of the Ravager .conf file.

    # Lines in this section will be run at startup.
    # You can put your MOUNT lines here.
    @echo off
    mount c “..”
    mount C “..\cloud_saves” -t overlay
    imgmount d “..\game.ins” -t iso
    goto launcher

    if errorlevel 3 goto exit
    if errorlevel 2 goto setup
    if errorlevel 1 goto game

    goto exit

    goto launcher



    Thanks for the help!
