    I tried to install a game called “Cosmo cosmic adventure : Forbidden planet” on dosbox on my Retropie 3 Raspberry 2 but it’s not working. I’m stuck with the installation.
    When i try to launch the “install.exe” file, instead of having the classical installation process i just have :

    INSTALL.EXE (ver 2.1)
    (c) 1994 SubZero Sofware
    Initialized OK. (311616 free)

    And that’s it. I tried to isntall the same thing in DosBox on my computer, it’s working like a charm, i do have the normal installation Screen when i run the “install.exe” file, then i can launch the game normally after completion.

    But in DosBox in retrostation i have this strange behavior, if you have any idea feel free to share ur thoughts with me !

    Thanks in advance.



    I’ve never installed any of my dosbox games, i merely run them through a launch script instead. Have you tried to do that instead >?



    Yes, i’ve followed this tutorial, but indeed they are telling go installer the games in order to extract game data, then create à launch script :), so if u have never installed à dosbox game it means that you only downloaded games already ‘ready to play’.

    Problem is still running !



    Have you tried copying the installed files on your PC to the pi?



    Yes, it’s working this way , I’ll stick to this for now on, installing the game to get the game’s data on my PC, then copying it to the raspberry and using a .sh script to launch this from emulationstation 🙂

    Thanks for your help.
