Masters of Magic

Recommended Posts

I just downloaded the fantasy strategy; Maters of Magic. I unzipped all the components to C:\Magic.

When I try to run Install.exe (From the above folder), it brings up DOS and says


Invalid Option: Magic\Install.exe
Microprose Install ver. 2.00
INSTALL [Flags]
-s Do NOT Auto-Direct Sound Cards
-b Turn ON speaker beeps
-p Do not load background art

I can't input any commands at this screen.

Help would be appreciated.

Are you running Win98 or what? It might be that this game runs in pure DOS only...

Try the Install with a flag like "Install.exe -b", but it probably won't change anything.

I'm running XP. This is another game I had a long time ago but was lost while moving. It ran on my friends computer, back when I asked for it a while ago, without problems. And I'm pretty sure he was running XP at the time, too.

Trying t orun a DOS game in XP is pretty much doomed to begin with...
You might get it partially working with DOSBox, but I won't guarantee that it does.
