Hello! This is my first instructable. Today I will show how to run Wolfenstein 3D and other DOS games with DOSBox. DOSBox is a DOS emulator created with SDL, the Simple Directmedia Library. Download DOSBox here: http://www.dosbox.com/download.php?main=1
Step 1: Download DOSBox
DOSBox is open source and free. Get it here: http://www.dosbox.com/download.php?main=1 and use the installer.
Step 2: Creating the Game Folder
Go to the root of your main hard drive (Mine is C:\) and create a folder. I called mine "dos".
Step 3: Start DOSBox
Starting DOSBox isn't really that hard. All you need to do is click the icon. When DOSBox is started, a window will pop up. Press Alt+Enter at any time to make it fullscreen or exit fullscreen.
Step 4: Mount the C:\dos Directory
Type this into DOSBox: mount c c:\dos
Then press Enter or Return. It will display the message "Drive C is mounted as local directory c:\dos\." After that, type c: and hit Enter to enter the c:\dos directory.
Step 5: Enter the Directory Containing the Game
Type dir into DOSBox to view the directories inside c:\dos. Then type cd [directory name here] to enter the directory. In this case it's cd WOLFEN~1
Step 6: Enter the Exe File Name and Play the Game!
Type dir, find the exe file name, type it in and you're away! Enjoy!
