Making it work

Before try to launch Arena manually with DOSbox, you should use ArenaSetup which do all the work for you.

  • This game can be run on DOSbox. However, when it is run, it is very slow and lags often. Trying the tweaks suggested on the DOSbox page might help. CTRL+F12 seemed to be helpful. Also going into the DOSBox Options by going to C:\Program Files(x86)\DOSBox(your version)\ and going to the Options batch file, then going to the 49th line, and changing memsize from 16 to 64 will help with the lag issues.
