    I dont know about any of you. I have played many games. I still play it now, when its well over 13 years old. I love it.

    One of my ALL TIME favorites is a game called Master of Orion.
    Its long past prime, and was made originally for DOS, before even Windows 95.

    Today, it cant be played natively in Windows XP, but can be played thru a DOS emulator.
    I have figured out how to play it thru a program called DOSbox.

    To play Master of Orion you need to follow the following steps.
    1) Download DOSbox at http://dosbox.sourceforge.net
    2) Install the application wherever you want.
    3) Install MOO to a folder, for example - C:\games\DOS\moo
    4) Run Start > Programs > DOSbox > DOSbox.conf (this is the DOSBOX config file)
    5) Edit the bottom lines for the AUTOEXEC, you need to MOUNT the drive and run the file. Below is the text I have in mine.
    Code:
    PHP:
    1 mount C "C:\games\DOS\moo"
    2 C:
    3 orion
    6) Find the text in the config that says "cycles" This will allow you to change the speed that DOSbox runs under. Set this much higher, but not higher than the MHZ of your PC of course. (for instance, a 3.0 GHz machine can be set at 25000)
    Cool Save the config.
    7) Now just run DOSbox. Since we set the autoexec in step 5 to run MOO automatically, the game should automatically run.
