The Black Cauldron is a side-view adventure game.

Making it work

Black Cauldron works fine under DOSBox 0.72, but you can get enhanced sound from the original version by changing your dosbox.conf file to emulate a Tandy computer.

The 1987 version was compatible with DOS:

[dosbox]
machine=tandy

The 1985 version was distributed with a PC Booter disk that overrode the operating system:

[dosbox]
machine=cga

[autoexec]
echo PRESS CTRL F4 TO CHANGE FLOPPIES
boot BC-1.img BC-2.img

If you require support for general issues, see the performance guide and FAQ.
