Hi everyone. I've had the urge to replay these old games, but I'm not crazy about having to use DOSbox. (I think I'm mechanically challenged or something because I have a heck of a time every time I try to use it) I was wondering if anyone knows of something similar to GOG that would have the old games but with the DOS program already running for you? (I checked on GOG btw and they didn't have them)

(btw--I'm not sure if it's okay for us to talk about programs like GOG and stuff so if not, just let me know. Thanks!)

Thanks for your help,
Tracy

You can play the first 2 with scummvm. As to availability: perhaps a second hand version of the Forgotten Realms Archives -> CD based. Most versions on Ebay are disk based.

Gog can be mentioned as it is a site that is licensed to distribute the games it offers.

Hi Tracy-

I would recommend checking out Ebay. There's at least one seller there who provides an installer guaranteed to work on XP, Vista and Win 7. And, he's selling the SSI AD and D gold box games.
