Problem installing Ecoquest2

Post by dotkel50 » Mon May 09, 2011 6:20 pm

Hi Collector,

I'm having a problem with your DOSBox installer for this game. I'm wondering if I have to copy the files out of the folders into one big folder or does the installer look inside the folders for the appropriate files? Or is it some other problem entirely?

Make 4 sub folders named 1,2,3 and 4. Copy disk one into folder 1, disk two into folder 2, etc.

My copy was on just 4 3½" disks. Was your copy on 5 5¼" disks? Looks like I'll need to add support for your version. I'll need layout information as with the others I have done for you. Check your PM.

I checked my PM just to feel included.

I discovered, I don't even have a Prime Minister. :lol:
