THE classic RPG - Supported (2016-03-24 21:20) ge2001
My, german version, works fine using the US Keyboard and the US Codepage (437).
Loading and saving in the game directory.
If you select Sound Blaster, maybe you must change IRQ to 5. Good Old Game. ;-)

Test period: 10 Minutes

Ver 0.74 (2011-01-12 10:01) Daravos
Tried using the instructions for setup with DOSBox from http://www.bootstrike.com/Ultima8

Installs fine (Installing from UC Collection CD, and running the U8 install program), yet game will not run despite adjustments to the environment. running U8.* causes DOSBox 0.74 to hang, having to force from fullscreen to windowed mode and terminating the program.

Have attempted to run at 12000 cycles, with both SB and SBPro Sound Cards in setup, as well as no sound selected.

Processor:
AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5200+ (2 CPUs), ~2.7GHz
Operating System:
Windows Vistaâ„¢ Home Premium (6.0, Build 6001) Service Pack 1 (6001.vistasp1_gdr.080917-1612)

Version 0.73 - Install Problem (2009-06-05 10:10) Xerosch
When I try installing the game it starts with the uncrunch procedure, but doesn't seem to finish it within 20 minutes.
DB 0.66 RC3 -- working perfectly (2007-02-25 12:47) red_avatar
I didn't run into a single problem running this game. I didn't even need to turn EMS off. After playing for three hours, I didn't experience a single crash or bug. Very fluent, very stable and a joy to play. Music & sounds play perfectly without abnormalities.

Beware for downloaded copies.
running on xp (2006-09-22 07:48) icy_tm
I got this game to run on my computer. First, you have to use the patch version that U8win9x specifies in the readme file, which has to be run from the XP command prompt. Then, run U8win9x from the command prompt. Now try it with DosBox, and it should work fine. I still can't get the sound to work either, but I am able to beat the game.
Sound issues (2006-03-21 17:06) Somefool
I am running this on .63. Everything is fine except the music, which is very static like and cuts off now often. Anyway to fix this?
running ok on dosbox version 0.63 - windows XP (2006-02-04 05:08) gatoloc0
if still having problems when running a second time try this:

just delete (or rename) static/U8SHAPES.CMP

I've no used the U8Win9x patch (just installed) by now all is running ok..

Ciao!
.63 and xp (2005-05-30 23:24) dawraith
having problems loading it a second time, tried to use the method posted above. had no secuss with it ( maybee i did somthing wrong) if any one has it working on xp please share how you were able to get it functioning
Fix for shapes file error (2004-04-19 09:31) Tremor
I had the same problem as the above, here is how I fixed it:

1. Install Ultima 8 normally under DOSbox.

2. **BEFORE YOU RUN U8.EXE**, run the Windows9x patch for Ultima 8. Note: the U8Win9x patch should be inside the installed Ultima 8 folder (Default c:\Ultima8) Note also: You must run the Win9x patch from the *Windows command prompt*, not from Dosbox.

3. Once the patch is installed, run U8W.exe (windows patched executable) from Windows (ie. not from DOSbox), the shapes file will decompress normally.

4. After this is finished and the game starts, you can exit and run U8.exe from Dosbox and it will work correctly.

Best of luck!
runs only once (2004-04-16 04:43) Delgado
install and game start worked in 0.61. however, starting the game a second time is impossible. it asks to re-install.
this it a speciality about ultima 8. when run for the first time, it decompresses a "shapes file". it seems this shapes file is not stored on disk properly. when you try to start the game a second time, it complains the shapes file is corrupted.
All seems well in 0.61 (2004-02-21 20:16) MSKHez
Intro/animations seem to work in 0.61. I only played for a few minutes, but everything seemed to work wonderfully.
Problems in 0.60 (2003-10-16 03:38) mirekluza
0.60 - DPMI must be switched on. Intro and other animations do not work (use ESC). The game has tendency to crash during save when lower cycle values are use (try to use something like 10000 or more cycles in DOSBOX).
