I recently found a game I have been trying to find / remember for years now: Lunicus. I found it on Amazon, got it today, and have spent about 5 hours trying to get it to run.
I have DosBox 0.74 installed, and Windows 3.1 installed using DosBox. Win31 works fine when installed. My native system is Windows 7.
I install Lunicus in Win31 using the CD. I have also tried making an image, mounting it in daemontools, and installing from there. Either way I do it, the installation seems to work perfectly fine. The installation of Win32 sys(and the freecell game) seems to go fine as well.
When I attempt to play the game, the game cannot find the cd drive.
So, I started googling...Here is what else I tried:
Making an iso of the cd and using imgmount.
Copying the contents of the CD to a directory and mounting that directory with -t cdrom.
Also, after that WIN32 files finish installing, there is a window that says that it must use "share.exe" and to run it before running windows or add it to autoconfig. I could not find a share.exe file, or one on the internet. I did find fakeshare via a tutorial, but that did not work either. I understand dosbox does not include this file due to copyright reasons, as well.
I have installed win31 and lunicus several (hundred it seems) times today trying to figure this out. One of the search engine results was from a post on this thread made a while ago. i tried all the answers in that thread with no joy.
Anyone have an advice for to get this game running right? If you need anymore info on what I have done or not done, I will answer asap.
