Default Morrowind VS Oblivion

When I last replayed Daggerfall in 2004, it was on an old PII (300MHz) machine/w Win 98. No DOSbox involved. I installed the official 20 MB patch that came with my copy of the game and encountered no error apart from the usual bugs (holes in floors etc., nothing that couldn't be remedied by pressing an F key).
The computer suicided after I finished the game, but I finished it (once again).

I heard that it shall run fine from within the box called "DOS".

Anyway, you could take a look at the DOSBOX supported games to find it out, and/or into the forums.

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)

I have recently resurrected my favorite old DOS PC, a HP Omnibook 800CT (it had been on loan to help with a local high school robotics team I had been working with). I have cool stuff like the Ultimate Wizardry Archives, Might & Magic Millennium Collection, etc on there … need to get Daggerfall on there as well …

No emulators for me - will not touch them. I want the real thing.

That's great. That's pretty much what I have going on as well!

True. I'm stuck in my second replay of Battlespire since the old old machine burned (savegames are stashed away on the server, though, so no problems there), and my new old machine (i.e., the current rig) is still too new to run Battlespire.

I have no issue with DOSBox, I just want the game to work!

The HP Omnibooks were such great engineering … like my beloved HP200LX organizer. It is why they were an 'instant buy' for me for so many years …

Thanks for the link to Lora's CRPG Reviews purpleblob. Good read! She is quite hilarious at times but her reviews of Witcher and Black & White are especially entertaining
