How to run D2 in DOSBox with a CD image?

Post by Xfing » Fri Aug 16, 2013 9:50 am

Please provide me with a step by step instruction of how to mount a CD in DOSbox and make it recognizable by Descent. I remember being able to do it long ago, but I forgot.

I want to run D2 this way to get a taste of the Sound Blaster 16 generated MIDIS, the discrepancy between the awesomeness of the modern midi versions and the retro ones is even greater with D2 than it was with D1.

Use the following command to mount an iso:

imgmount d <path to iso file name> -t iso

If you want to mount your physical drive use:

MOUNT D <CD drive letter>:\ -t cdrom
Insane difficulty, cold start, no death, full rescue, 100+ HP at exit.
