Solutions

Phan2XP

PHAN2XP is a graphical installer used for configuring an MS-DOS emulator (DosBOX) for use with Phantasmagoria: A Puzzle of Flesh. Required and files too large to stream are copied from the original disc, and placed into the installation directory. A patched version of the SCI SoundBlaster audio driver is then copied to the installation directory from the installer archive. In addition, an emulation profile (DosBOX configuration file) is generated to ensure maximum compatibility and function.
