    ZC on DosBox (namely 1.0 and 1.92 B 182/3) Win 10

    Someone said they got this working, I got SFR working, but I'd really like to get old versions working again. If anyone knows how to override the Protected Mode let me know.

    Update: It now works, but crashes after I collect the first item. Still, if anyone knows, comment away. I also the first test quest ever, an unofficial 3rd Quest I never released, as well as a version of New Quest 1.02 version, who knows if it is complete, lol. Maybe after I get this to work I'll stream it. (it's probably terrible, and I've only referenced it once in my whole ZC dev history)

    Thanks

    This is how to get it to work:

I found the CWSDPMI stuff in Setzer's thread from a couple years back, so my apologies if you've already tried it. Thanks to Elebreed for bringing the memsize thing to my attention.

    Open DOSBox's configuration file in a text editor. There's a batch file that comes with DOSBox that automatically opens the config file in in Notepad (DOSBox 0.74 Options.bat), but if that doesn't work, you can find the config file at C:\Users\[account name]\AppData\Local\DOSBox\dosbox-0.74.conf. Change memsize=16 to memsize=64. 1.90 might not require this step, although I think 1.92b183 won't work without bumping the memory up.
    Download CWSDPMI. You can find it here, although if that doesn't work I reuploaded it here.
    Unzip CWSDPMI and put it somewhere you can find it in DOSBox (I just put it in the same folder as ZC 1.90).
    Run DOSBox, cd to wherever CWSDPMI is. Run cwsdpmi -x. cd to wherever Zelda Classic is, run zelda, and hope it works.
    This works for me. So if you ever wanted to see New or 3rd EX in 1.02, this is the way to do it, for now. :)
