games do not work on Windows XP, of course, and we do not offer technical
support for DOS games running on Windows XP. However, if you really want to run
games like this on your fast new Windows XP machine you should try using
DOSBox. The DOSBox OpenSource DOS emulator is an excellent piece of work which
we can highly recommend. It isn't possible for us to guarantee that it will
work well for you, however, especially on newer graphic-intensive DOS games. On
older DOS games, like Civilization, for example, it runs well on any machine
capable of running Windows XP.
To start with, you will need to download the Win32
Installer using this link:
The README file included with DOSBox will tell you what you
need to know. If you find it a bit too technical, just click on The Newbie's
Pictoral Guide to DOSBox on the following page:
We find that it is best to create a separate shortcut for
each DOSBox game. That makes starting the game easier and also makes full
screen mode easier to deal with.
