Out of memory error on Warcraft 2 setup

Post by Phantom98 »

I'm trying to run Warcraft 2 off of the original disk in ubuntu 19.10. However, I get an error when I run install.exe : out of memory. Anyone know why?
Commands:

mount C /home/myusername/Documents/DOS
mount D /media/myusername/WAR2_122 -t cdrom
D:
install

You likely need to use the MOUNT command with the -freesize parameter to define the size of your virtual C drive, like this:

Code: Select all

mount C /home/myusername/Documents/DOS -freesize 600
By default, DOSBox sets the size to something like 100 MiB which some DOS installers think is nearly not enough for them.
