Okay, one of the Age of Rifles guys just created a nice package combining Dosbox and AoR into one neat little pile that you just Unzip and Voila it's ready to go.

NOW…my problem (question) is. AoR is my second fave PC game of all time, but I have Fantasy General (my fave) both on CD and also in a downloadable zip file.

Can I just put FG into the folder AoR as is and it will run or…

NO.

Again, DosBox is up and running, but I'm not exactly Mr. PC Type Person, so any help/suggestions would be most appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

You probably want to put it in a folder along the same path as AoR. So it would look something like

c:\folder\path\programs\AoR

and

c:\folder\path\programs\FG

Of course, your folder paths will look different but hopefully that conveys the idea.

Mayhaps this will help:

The Folder looks like this:

This PC -> Downloads -> Wargame Construction Set III (Aor)

Folders within the above are listed as follows:

C
cd
DosBox
Scenario Collection
AoR Manual x2 (both internet link and .pdf files)

and just below, a box icon thingie with gears and junque that says:

Start of Rifles (I renamed it) but it's a Window's Batch File

I hope that helps.

Andrew, where did you get this? AoR is one of my all-time favs as well.

Ahhh.

You have to join, but well worth it:


Yahoo Groups: (Search) Age of Rifles

(Sorry, the link was to my account). Ack!

Hmm, I dislike Yahoo groups but may need to look into this. Thanks!

Try D-Fend Reloaded, its a Windows front end for DosBox apparently.
