When i install game with sierra installer the game won't open. It's show dosbox window and quit to desktop
I am at a disadvantage because I do not have:
- the Polish version of LSL 7
- a Polish version of Windows
- a Polish version of DOS
If the Polish version of LSL 7 really is Windows only, it won't work with a DOSBox installer that's meant to work with the DOS version of LSL 7. It might install, but it won't run if it needs Windows. Also if LSL 7 uses any 16-bit code in the installer, it won't install on 64-bit Windows outside of emulation/virtualization (DOSBox, VMware, PCem, 86box, etc.).
If the Polish version of the game works with Windows 3.1x (Windows 3.1x means Windows 3.1 or 3.11), then there's a chance you can get it working inside DOSBox by installing the Polish version of Windows 3.1x inside of DOSBox. Some games meant for Windows 3.1 will play in DOSBox this way -- for example Shivers or early versions of Myst or 9: The Last Resort will play in DOSBox with Windows 3.1 installed.
There are instructions for running Windows 3.1x inside of DOSBox herehttps://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=39&t=9405
These instructions include links to driver downloads that are needed for Windows 3.1x. I used the S3 drivers, the SoundBlaster drivers, and the QuickTime 2.12 that are linked to in that thread.
I notice there is a Polish language file for DOSBox 0.73
scroll down near the bottom of this pagehttps://www.dosbox.com/download.php?main=1
The DOSBox-polish-lang-073.zip file contains a dosbox-0.73.conf and a polish.lng file.
I don't know if that works with the latest DOSBox (DOSBox 0.74). So you might need to get dosbox 0.73 from somewhere and add those files to the DOSBox configuration. The DOSBox-polish-lang-073.zip file didn't contain a readme, but some of the other language files do. As best I can tell, you'd
Install DOSBox 0.73
Locate where DOSBox is putting its configuration files (not its program files) on your computer. Configuration files probably go somewhere like
Put the dosbox-0.73.conf and polish.lng files in that folder.
Test DOSBox. Hopefully it will be a Polish-compatible version of DOSBox after this.
Don't worry about running DOSBox 0.73 instead of 0.74. 0.73 actually works better for some games. And it may be that the polish-lang-0.73.zip files work with DOSBox 0.74 anyway (you might have to edit a file name).
As to where to find a Polish version of Windows 3.1 or 3.11, I don't know.
I bought the English version of Windows 3.11 from eBay.
An alternative to DOSBox might be if you can find a Polish version of VMware Player and install a Polish version of Windows 95 or 98 inside of it.
All the above is guesswork about what will work.
You'll get a better answer at VOGONS forumhttps://www.vogons.org/viewforum.php?f=8
Not only are there experts at running "Very Old Games On New Systems" at VOGONS, but there are people from many different countries there, some of whom may have run into similar problems with language versions. Gameboomers is mainly English-speakers and mainly non-technical members, so there are fewer people here that are able to help.
