Cool.

 

But I'm getting an error after I installed the game:

 

C:\DAGGER>dagger

 

TES: Daggerfall v1. - 08/30/96 14:05:49

ERROR: Looks like you inserted the wrong CD. Please insert your Daggerfall CD in your cdrom and try again.

 

I used the following command to mount my install directory as the cdrom and it appeared to install OK:

 

mount D ~/DOS/DFCD -t cdrom -usecd 0 -label Daggerfall

 

I have DOXBox 0.72 installed in Mandriva 2009.1

Did you run the DAG213 to install the update patch? I've found that you also need to copy all sixteen .VID files from ~/DOS/DFCD/DAGGER/ARENA2 to ~/DOS/DAGGER/ARENA2. Then open your ~/DOS/DAGGER/Z.CFG file with a text editor and change the line:

 

pathcd d:\dagger\arena2\

 

to

 

pathcd c:\dagger\arena2\

 

now you will not have to mount DCFD as a CD every time you start the game. This will also fix the wrong CD error you're having. Then you should create a dosbox.conf file, if you haven't already done so. Open the configfile and change the line:

 

memsize=16

 

to

 

memsize=32

 

Now you can start the game with:

 

mount c ~/DOS -freesize 1000
c:
cd dagger
fall z.cfg

Enjoy the game! :)
