I have Master of Magic [link removed].
It is patched to its latest version 1.31
I also have Jay Barnett's Multiplayer Shell version 4.2: http://home.no/michbert/mmom42s.zip
I have tested this on two different computers, one running XP Pro SP2 32-bit, the other running XP MCE SP2 32-bit and I get the same error using the latest DosBox 0.72 on both machines. I've gotten the program to run fine on older machines without DosBox.
Now firstly, running Master of Magic works perfectly (yay DosBox). I just type magic.exe and hit enter. I set my CPU cycles where I want, and voila. The sound and music in this game are awful so I leave them off. The game runs perfectly.
Now, I don't care about starting multiplayer games using this shell, but one of the neat things is the editor that is included.
To use the editor on single player games, it is simple:
Run mm.bat in DosBox to open up the shell.
Click Editor to load the editor, this exits the shell.
Now you can run magic.exe and after hitting alt+f1 to activate the editor, you should be good to go.
When I try to run the editor, I get the error:
"Not enough free upper memory: Load aborted"
I checked through the config file and tried messing a bit with XMS/EMS/etc. memory true vs. false, but I'm not very savvy with all of that.
Does anyone know any solutions or is anyone willing to use the above files to troubleshoot a solution for me (and anyone else with this problem).
Essentially all I would need is for someone to tell me how I can get the editor to load without giving me the memory error. You can test it quickly and easily just by downloading the mmom42s.zip file from the above link. Unzip it, run mm.bat in the MoM directory (the link to MoM above is already patched).
Incase you are wary, I scanned all of the above files with Grisoft's AVG Free 8, and it found nothing. I still advise anyone to scan the links for themselves, but AVG says they're fine, as well, AVG's safe link search, Yahoo, and Mozilla Firefox 3.0.1 all approved of the sites that are listed above.
Thanks in advance. And let me know if there is any other useful information that I can provide.
