The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall is the second game in The Elder Scrolls series, developed by Bethesda Softworks and released in 1996.

Making it work

Get DOSBox going with your CD drive mounted as d:\ and a directory on your hard drive as c:\.

Place the Daggerfall CD in your CD drive.

Enter the commands:
...and run through the install wizard. Soundblaster 16 works for SFX and music.

Change directory to the install directory, usually:

And run Daggerfall with this command:

You may need to tweak your CPU cycles to get decent speed and sound. My old 2.4GHz P3 found its sweet spot at 10000 cycles.

If you experience problems with the game being unable to find the CD, try creating an ISO image from the CD and mounting the image using IMGMOUNT.

There was a bug in DOSBox that prevented this game to correctly detect it's CD, the bug was fixed after the 0.72 release.
