CD mount is ok .... but didn't you say
...it via dosbox mounted .iso....
ISO? So if I understand you swell you have a CD image, an ISO, why don't you mount it directly in dosbox with
???? Works much better then an extra virtual drive.
1. mount c: c:\
completely wrong, and even more completely wrong in Win7....
please read and apply this
Will work much better in Win7, really.
Now reinstall the game, accept
(the default dir)
To launch the game you must see c:\nfsse> as prompt, for this:
run dosbox, mount or imgmount the CD as D again and input:
That is if you followed the link to install-run dosbox correctly with a proper virtual C: mounted.
Launching the game with your
c:\cd old\cd nfsse\nfs
is asking for all kinds of problems, that's NOT the way to do things, even if it works for
games, most games won't run that way.
A lot of dosgames need to be launched from their own folder ( prompt on
)as they need a specific dir (folder) structure, they can only work with absolute paths, not with relative paths (as most windows games), and thus can not be launched directly from c:\ as you tried.
Should you don't know the syntax for "imgmount", it is:
imgmount d "x:\path\name.iso" -t cdrom
Works also fine with BIN/CUE CD images
imgmount d "x:\path\name.cue" -t cdrom
You can eventually put them imgmount lines in a batch file saved on your virtual C, name it something as
or something that you easily can remember.
UNIVBE should not be needed for NFSSE, but I'm not 100% sure of that as you set "svga_et4000", should you have graph glitches reset to "svga_s3".
Mem 32MB isn't also needed, the default 16 MB will do fine for 99% of the games, NFSSE included.
Sound should be set to SB16/AWE when installing the game.

Post subject: Need For Speed 1 SE Win7 DosBox 0.74
hi there, ive got a problem to run nfs 1 se, i just normally installed it via dosbox mounted .iso, and instalation was succesful but when i try to run the game it just write the normal text :
DOS/4WG Protected mode runtime version 1.97
and then nothing else happens.. i tried to mount image and then run the game and nothing changed..
Do some of u guys have an expirience with this matter please? I really would like to play Special edition
never knew it even exists and now i cant try it :\ btw normal version of NFS1 runs great with dosbox so thats why im confused and dunno what to do..
Thanx for any advices. ^^
