Installing Action Soccer (1995) in PCem (Windows 98 SE)

Hello everyone,

i am trying to install Action Soccer (1995) on my Windows 98 SE guest system in PCem. The installation is not starting, because the game says: "You need more 5KB free to run".
The game manual says that this game needs 560KB free conventional memory to run. This is what i get if i enter MEM in the DOS prompt:

Code: Select all
Speichertyp         Gesamt =   Belegt +    Frei
----------------  --------   --------   --------
Konventionell         640K       100K       540K
Oberer                  0K         0K         0K
Reserviert              0K         0K         0K
XMS-Speicher       65,472K          ?   129,824K
----------------  --------   --------   --------
Speicher gesamt    66,112K          ?   130,364K

Ges. unter 1 MB      640K       100K       540K

EMS-Speicher gesamt                   64M (67,108,864 bytes)
Freier EMS-Speicher                   16M (16,777,216 bytes) 


Seems like i don't have enough free conventional memory. How can i fix that?
Here are my config.sys and autoexec.bat.

config.sys
Code: Select all
device=C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND\Display.sys con=(ega,,1)
Country=0,49,850,C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND\country.sys
DEVICEHIGH=C:\DOS\OAKCDROM.SYS /D:MSC001


autoexec.bat
Code: Select all
mode con codepage prepare=((850) C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND\ega.cpi)
mode con codepage select=850
keyb gr,,C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND\keyboard.sys
rem - By WIndows Setup - MSCDEX.EXE /D:MSCD001 /L:D
C:\MOUSE\CTMOUSE.EXE /R2
SET MIDI=SYNTH:1 MAP:E
SET SOUND=C:\PROGRA~2\CREATIVE\CTSND

Make sure the "DOS=" line in config.sys looks like this:

DOS=HIGH,UMB,AUTO

If there is no "DOS=" line, add it.

Then reboot and see if you have more than 540kb free.
