Shannara is an adventure game for the IBM PC based on the Shannara series of the first three books.

Windows

How to install with CD

Mounting the game CD-Rom drive. E.g. where "D:\" is your local drive.

Z:\>MOUNT D D:\ -t cdrom

Mounting a folder from your harddrive for the game installation. E.g.

Z:\>MOUNT C D:\DOSGAMES\SHANNARA

Change into the folder D:\SHANNARA\ and execute the INSTALL.EXE. Follow the installation steps. You should use a minimal installation and the installation drive for the game is C:. The default installation folder is SHANNARA. Finish the sound setup and change into the folder C:\SHANNARA\. Start the game.

C:\SHANNARA\SHANNARA.EXE

How to install with an ISO

Mounting the game ISO. E.g.

Z:\>IMGMOUNT D D:\DOSGAMES\SHANNARA\ISO\Shannara.iso -t iso

Mounting a folder from your harddrive for the game installation. E.g.

Z:\>MOUNT C D:\DOSGAMES\SHANNARA

Change into the folder D:\SHANNARA\ and execute the INSTALL.EXE. Follow the installation steps. You should use a minimal installation and the installation drive for the game is C:. The default installation folder is SHANNARA. Finish the sound setup and change into the folder C:\SHANNARA\. Start the game.

C:\SHANNARA\SHANNARA.EXE

How to install without CD/ISO

Copy the SHANNARA folder from CD to your local drive e.g. D:\DOSGAMES\. Change into the folder D:\DOSGAMES\SHANNARA\ and open the LEGEND.INI file with a text editor.

Original LEGEND.INI file:

MOUSE=MOUSE
PICDATA=.\
VOCDATA=.\VOC
SAVEDATA=C:\
FLCDATA=.\FLICS

To play the game without CD make the following modifications.

Modified LEGEND.INI file:

KEYBOARD=NORMAL
MOUSE=MOUSE
PICDATA=C:\
VOCDATA=C:\VOC\
SAVEDATA=C:\
FLCDATA=C:\FLICS\

Mounting the game folder from your harddrive.

Z:\>MOUNT C D:\DOSGAMES\SHANNARA

You should execute SETSOUND.EXE at first to start the configuration for the sound card.

C:\>SETSOUND.EXE

Then you can start the game via SHANNARA.EXE.

C:\>SHANNARA.EXE

Making it work

If you want to play the game in full screen mode you should change the output parameter in the [sdl] section of your config file.

Default output parameter:

output=surface

Modified output parameter:

output=ddraw

This fixes an issue with all fading transitions in the game and enhances the image quality in a few cutscenes.

Read on in the Dosbox.conf for further informations about possible parameters.

DosBox config file example using an ISO

# This is the configurationfile for DOSBox 0.73 and 0.74.
# Lines starting with a # are commentlines.
# They are used to (briefly) document the effect of each option.

[sdl]
#       fullscreen: Start dosbox directly in fullscreen.
#       fulldouble: Use double buffering in fullscreen.
#   fullresolution: What resolution to use for fullscreen: original or fixed size (e.g. 1024x768).
# windowresolution: Scale the window to this size IF the output device supports hardware scaling.
#           output: What video system to use for output.
#                   Possible values: surface, overlay, opengl, openglnb, ddraw.
#         autolock: Mouse will automatically lock, if you click on the screen.
#      sensitivity: Mouse sensitivity.
#      waitonerror: Wait before closing the console if dosbox has an error.
#         priority: Priority levels for dosbox. Second entry behind the comma is for when dosbox is not focused/minimized. (pause is only valid for the second entry)
#                   Possible values: lowest, lower, normal, higher, highest, pause.
#       mapperfile: File used to load/save the key/event mappings from.
#     usescancodes: Avoid usage of symkeys, might not work on all operating systems.

# captures: Directory where things like wave, midi, screenshot get captured.
#  memsize: Amount of memory DOSBox has in megabytes.
#             This value is best left at its default to avoid problems with some games,
#             though few games might require a higher value.
#             There is generally no speed advantage when raising this value.

[render]
# frameskip: How many frames DOSBox skips before drawing one.
#    aspect: Do aspect correction, if your output method doesn't support scaling this can slow things down!.

#            Possible values: none, normal2x, normal3x, advmame2x, advmame3x, advinterp2x, advinterp3x, hq2x, hq3x, 2xsai, super2xsai, supereagle, tv2x, tv3x, rgb2x, rgb3x, scan2x, scan3x.

#    cycles: Amount of instructions DOSBox tries to emulate each millisecond. Setting this value too high results in sound dropouts and lags. Cycles can be set in 3 ways:
#              'auto'          tries to guess what a game needs.
#                              It usually works, but can fail for certain games.
#              'fixed #number' will set a fixed amount of cycles. This is what you usually need if 'auto' fails.
#                              (Example: fixed 4000)
#              'max'           will allocate as much cycles as your computer is able to handle
#            
#            Possible values: auto, fixed, max.
#   cycleup: Amount of cycles to increase/decrease with keycombo.
