Delete that 'duke' folder, in other words: start over from scratch.
Rule of thumb: dosgames must be installed
Unzip the file you downloaded to
You must have 3 files in \temp\ now:
install.bat, DN1SW20.SHR and FILE_ID.DIZ
Run dosbox and input:
Accept everything (simply hit 'enter' when needed.
This will install the game correctly in c:\duke\ (dosbox path, of course) and leave you in c:\duke\
to run the game.
Next time you wanna run the game, run dosbox and input:
You may delete what's in \temp\ if you want.

I'm using Dosbox 0.74.
My exact mount lines are:
# Lines in this section will be run at startup.
mount c "c:\users\mOwner\oldgames"
To install the game I unzipped the file I downloaded, and ran INSTALL.BAT -
I think this is where I went wrong?
- and saved to c:\users\mOwner\oldgames\DUKE.
To run I start up DOSBox and type in 'DUKE\DN1' & hit enter.
Oh, and I got the game from dosgamesarchive.com
Thanks for taking the time to try and help me.

What have you done till now to install the game?
How do you run the game?
Where did you get the game?
AKA: details please.......
FYI: DN1 runs flawless on dosbox, so it's pretty safe to assume there is somewhere a screw up, but without any relevant info I can't even guess what's screwed up.

Post subject: DOSBox and Duke Nukem 1
Hi there, I'm new to this so please bear with me if this is a stupid question, I haven't seen it anywhere else on the forum though so here goes:
I'm trying to get Duke Nukem I to work on Vista & have followed all the steps in the stickied 'Dosbox and Vista. [Howto]' thread, only when I attempt to open the game this happens:
It seems as though DOSBox knows the game is there because the white boxes appear where, if the game were running properly, there would be an instructions/dialogue box.
Does anyone know a fix for this issue?
