Dark Forces on WinXP and newer Operating Systems


Recommended Posts

Mounting just tells dosbox where to find the files. If a game requires a CD, make a mount to where the cd is (for ex. drive F) and where the game is(for ex. C:/games/Dark)



If you are having trouble, you should use a frontend like Dfend. You don't have to type anything.

3. Create a Folder in C: named DOSGAMES (case sensitive)

4.open dosbox

7.now write D:

8.write install.exe

9.go to install

10.go to custom install

11.press enter

12.check : levels, textures, cutscenes, and sprites

13.press continue

14.look how it installs :)

15.press any key

16.press any key again


18.press c

19.press enter

20.now choose sound blaster 16

21.at port select 220

23.press detect

24.press any key

25.select quit

26.press y

27.select exit

28.select exit again

I used DOSBOX to install and play Dark Forces and it works perfectly fine. Now I'm enjoying this game from 1995 (!!!) with my kids who are 5 and 7. For those who don't know how to install it, read this thread and you'll get all the information you'll need to play Dark Forces on a PC (XP or Vista). I have the original Dark Forces CD, Dark Forces II and Jedi Outcast.
