The Oregon Trail is an educational computer game designed to teach school children about the realities of 19th century pioneer life on the trail. The player assumes the role of a wagon leader guiding his party of settlers from Independence, Missouri, to Oregon's Willamette Valley by way of the Oregon Trail via a Conestoga wagon in 1848.
Making it work
The Oregon Trail will run quite well when configured according to the standard methods for DOSbox. There are two points to note:
- You will need to run SETUP.BAT to get the sound working. Choose the Soundblaster option.
- The game does support the mouse, but you will need to exit DOSbox entirely to get it back again once you're done playing.(or press ctrl-f10)
