Getting Set Up For DOSBox

1) Go to your C: drive.
2) Create a folder "dos".
(You can name it whatever you like, I'll simply refer to this folder as the DOS folder throughout.)

Installing X-Wing Collector's Edition
1) Launch DOSBox.
2) Z:\> mount c C:\dos
3) Z:\> mount d D:\ -t cdrom -usecd 0 -ioctl
(If you have another drive as your CD drive - mine is E:\ - the command would be mount d E:\ -t cdrom -usecd 0 -ioctl) 4) Z:\> D:
5) D:\> install

The installation programme should work without a hitch. When I installed it on my Vista 32-bit HP laptop, it also went through all of the sound configuration process.

To Play X-Wing Collector's Edition Right After Installation
1) D:\> C:
2) C:\> cd xwingcd
3) C:\XWINGCD> xwingcd

Boom! You're running.

To Play X-Wing Collector's Edition Subsequently
1) Launch DOSBox
2) Z:\> mount c C:\dos
3) Z:\> mount d D:\ -t cdrom -usecd 0 -ioctl
4) Z:\> C:
5) C:\> cd xwingcd
6) C:\XWINGCD> xwingcd

Note that every time you want to play, you must remount your C:\dos folder as C: and your D:\ drive.

I also recommend hitting CTRL-12 several times to raise the CPU cycles associated.

Happy hunting!
