Works with 0.65 (2006-07-04 07:36) Lo_Ord
The game works with version 0.65 perfectly on my Pc (Athlon XP 2400+, 1024 Gb RAM) with the following settings:
core=dynamic
cycles=48000 (very high, but it works smoothly ;-P)
output=ddraw (didn't test it with surface yet)

No sound or music stuttering (both Soundblaster or 100% compatible) and it runs in 1024*768 now!
Dynamic Core (2005-05-04 00:20) Alenson
Game run without crashes on any core other than 'dynamic'. Turning it dynamic cause DosBox with S2 crash every 10 minutes. Best playable using just simple core imho.
Yay! :-) (2005-04-11 13:55) gilead
I just tried it and I can run Settlers 2 Gold perfectly well with 0.63. It's a bit slow with sound/music so I disabled them in setup. After that game speed is perfectly normal. But hey! It's a 700MHz laptop, so I guess it's quite OK speed :-)
settlers 2 gold (v0.63) (2005-01-13 22:13) marvinGS
works well on 800*600 but craches on 1024*768. DosBox closes when I start a map at 1024*768. Some minor sound distortions. Overal very playable.
Intro? (2004-12-11 13:50) Bora
i tried settlers 2 gold (german)
with dosbox 0.63

of course the game was compalining about the missing cd-rom drive.
so i did this:
1. start dosbox 0.63
2. mounted hardrive for access to the game
3. mounted my dvd drive that the game could detect
the cd

resolt: game was still complaining that the disc was not in the drive.
but i had access to the files and fodlers on the cd under dosbox, just under a regular dos.
i also treid all the shown mounting solutions in the readme. didn't work.
so ayone who knows what i need to do to run the game with the intro?

beside this i run the gamne by executing the s2.exe. i run the game with about 9000 cycles
(system: p4 2 GHz and 512 MB RAM)
sound works, game runs with the regular speed, to me. no crashes so far.
Crashes Often (2004-10-03 07:10) PerryRhodan
I have to turn on "dynamic CPU core" to run the game at an acceptable speed. It runs fine then but it crashes every 10 minutes.
Almost there! (v0.62) (2004-09-29 17:29) MEiJ
the speed seems 'ok' on my AMD 1800XP at 6000 cycles. The sound is slightly choppy, but it's a major improvement on the last version. Loading time is much shorter!

I have the German version as well and it WORKS!

The German version (http://dosbox.sourceforge.net/comp_list.php?showID=1930) does *NOT* work: "Exit to error: INT:Gate Selector points to illegal descriptor with type 0"
As MEiJ and more (2004-03-15 07:55) Woje
Sound's buggy, too.
Note: (2004-02-07 23:23) MEiJ
major slowdowns, pretty unplayable due to the speed. seems to work fine appart from that
