Fine U-Boot Simulation with Historical Quests - Supported (2016-03-23 20:28) ge2001
No problems with my version (PENTAGRAM release).
One of the games i like to play after adding all my old games to D-Fend.

AOD CD (2015-10-13 19:45) Danlucio
The problem reported below by "uk_john" can be solved by setting the mounting directory one level above the installation directory. For example, if the game is the following path c:gamesdynamixaodcd, use mount c c:games. After that , go to the game directory and type aod. This trick solves the problem. You need also to mount the CD image or real CD if you want to see the videos in online manual.
0.72 and 0.73 not working with CD DOS version (2009-06-11 23:41) uk_john
The only way I can get my CD DOS version of AoD to work is to install the game from CD within 0.72 or 0,.73 and start the game immediately. The game then works. If I close DOSBox and try to run the game again, I get the following error message:

HMI Error: sw_sound 'read_config_file' Failed to open C:DynamixAODCDresource.cfg

I have tried mounting within DOSBox and using frontends all to no avail.

Don't forget to disable GUS (2008-07-05 21:37) Lucasfr
As said by benti01, simply specify "gus=false" in dosbox.conf in order game to run.
Config settings & game installation (2004-08-03 20:34) benti01
AOD CD edition works fine with DOSBox 0.61 if memsize is set to 8 in the DOSBox conf file. I also turned off Gravis Ultrasound emulation, as Soundset seemed to have trouble finding the Soundblaster when this was enabled.

There are still hassles with installation. I found it easiest to install the game from a standard Windows XP dos window, then manually copy any files which failed to get installed. I then ran Soundset from DOSBox to get the sound configured. The installs for the patches and addon pack don't work either - I just copied the files and manually UNCHUNK'ed the resource files.

Once installed it all works fine :-)

Note: (2003-08-10 07:05) Nostalgiker
DOSBox exits immediately after starting aod.bat, aodcd.exe or soundset.exe! (VESA Driver in AOD is disabled!)
