Hello, denizens of ATS. I've come to you today with a problem that has been plaguing me. Years ago, I enjoyed a particular Apogee game called
"Monster Bash" ("Graveyard" during development). I loved it for its balance of simplicity and variety...the imagination in the game was
outstanding. Now, for nostalgic purposes, I want to revisit that time and place in my heart. Unfortunately, a couple of issues stand in my way.
To start with, Monster Bash was designed for an older operating system - Windows XP is as late a model as I can manage so far. But the computer I
normally use features Windows 7. Google has informed me that a program called DosBox can be utilized to create a shell that will allow the game to be
executed on a newer OS.
The next issue is DosBox. I have successfully downloaded it, but I can't make heads nor tails of it. I can make my way around software fairly well,
but this exceeds my current skills. As a geek, yes, I am ashamed.
The point is, without the necessary working knowledge of DosBox, I can't follow
my nostalgic impulses. In addition, I'm not entirely certain as to whether the program will even function with Win 7 to the point of loading the
If there are any geeks or computer experts on ATS who are willing to assist me in this matter, I would be very grateful. From one gamer to another...
would a 1337 haxxor lend a hand?
Thanks in advance for any help! And try to keep the trolling to a minimum...
