Thats what happens when something tries to run in dos and totally fails.

What's the expansion for IV have? is it just the multi-player addition, or are there new campaigns/scenarios?

I'll have to check again, but I think there's a bunch of new items, maybe one or two more characters, and an additional couple of campaigns.

I still have the Might & Magic Games on CD from when they re-released them a few years back Smile It's called the Millenium Edition and it has Might and Magic 6 & 7, Swords of Xeen, and Clouds, Darkside, and World of Xeen.

Note: I just tried to install them all again and if you are running WinXP, it seems, MM 6 & 7 will install, but the Xeen stuff won't. It says that the programs won't run under Win NT; install 95 or 98

This is a cracked dos version that I got running very well under DOSBox emulation:

http://retrogames.intranet.hu/sub/ufo1.zip

get dosbox here:

http://dosbox.sourceforge.net/download.php?main=1

follow directions here:

works much better than the strait windows version because it runs at the correct speed...

my boss at work was in awe of this and apparently he too had the Jones In The Fast Lane coolness factor, haha.

Oh yeah, and I beat Kings Quest 2 - Romancing the Stones, it was a cool ass VGA version, but I only got 177 out of 181, damnit!
