I hope this is the right place to post this - I looked around and it seemed to be!
I've had the Roberta Williams Anthology version of this game working just fine and dandy in DOSBox for a long time, until I got me a shiny new laptop with Windows 7, and all of a sudden this game, and ONLY this game, will not work using the same configuration I've always used (all the others work fine, along with the QFG series, The 7th Guest, Martian Memorandum, etc etc etc). The black screen pops up for a second then instantly disappears with no explanation.
So, I figured I'd give this installer a try and see if it solves my problem, but it doesn't seem to be able to recognise the game on the RWANTH discs. I tried with disc 4 (the disc the game is actually on), and even with disc one just in case, but it just kept telling me to insert the disc and try again. Is there some extra step that needs to be taken to get the RWANTH version of the game to install with the DOSBox installer? It said it worked with this version, soooo I'm confused and sad. SAD, I TELL YOU!
Also, hello... first post. I've been trying to introduce my man to all the old games I love and it's proving tough with this fancy new machine. Kinda makes me miss my old crappy desktop.
