problems saving (2009-09-07 20:03) seannachie
The last copy of C0A I obtained from gamebird.dk, a German abandonware site that has been down for a while. The game ran fine in previous versions of dosbox.
Now (using 0.73) when I try to save over the default file, the word 'default' glitches & will not save. I can 'ESC', so I guess it means it didn't crash. I tried saving under 'jarel', but it says 'disk full - press return' Renaming the 'default' file doesn't work either. I got a new one from Underdogs, but it does the same thing.
Also, what's the code for calling an unique cfg file? I edited the default one, but the changes don't work. I installed DB in C:Prgram FilesDOSBox 0.73, but the status window says the cfg file is in the App' Data folder, which is either hidden or doesn't exist.

There seems to be more versions of the game on various abandonware servers. The version released by the group "The Humble Guys" (contains ARBO.EXE, ARBOE.EXE) seems to be buggy, unable to save or load games (both in DOS and in DOSBOX).
The version available on Underdogs (contains START.EXE) seems to be ok both in DOS and DOSBOX (well, almost - see below)..
In DOSBOX use VGA graphic (mouse does not work properly in CGA). There is one more problem - the game is unable to create a new save file (this is probably a bug in DOSBOX). Fortunately the solution is simple - just save into any existing file (its content will be overwritten, so it does not matter what kind of file it is).
