Works - with a little fix! (2008-09-26 15:27) MiniMax
For a full explanation, go to this thread on VOGONS.

For a quick fix, download this little program, and run it in DOSBox before you run ELITE.

@chrisintx:
please would you remind and post the trick? Thanks!
Please It's so important to "resolve" that issue.

Elite makes a check of file attributes for some reason when it loads and saves files, and when I looked at that part of the source code (a bios call?) it looked like not much code was there. I did a workaround somehow, but this was a year or two ago and I've forgotten what I did. =(
Loading the Elite files (2007-07-06 04:35) Sly
Tested the Save/Load game in Elite.

Running via DOSBOX 0.61/0.65/0.70:

Can Save.
Cannot Load.

Running directly from WinXP:
Can Save and Load normally, even the games saved from DOSBOX.

Error (2004-09-22 17:15) Rincewind
Playing and saving game works but loading one doesn't. (DOSBox 0.61 on Win2K and WinXP)
Any suggestions?
Note: (2003-04-15 10:35) Testomate
Works perfectly.
