Hey, i was cleaning out our band-room today (old, old, old junk...) and stumbled upon a goldmine of old and classic games. Among these are the original Monkey Island and Mario Is Missing! games.
Mario Is Missing! is on 5 floppies, and boot up in DOS. The problem is that the first disk isn't recognizing my hard drive. I start to install the program, and i try to type in the file path as "C:\Windows\Mario", but it says "This is not a valid Hard Disk Drive. Please Choose another Hard Disk and Try again".
I also tried using the default path the program wants to use ('C:\Mario') and that still won't work.
The game needs 12 MHz (i think i got that covered...) and DOS 3.3 or above (I'm thinkin XP's Command Prompt will work, since it is basically a re-named DOS). Is it that my box is just too new for the disks to recognize my hard-drive?
What other solutions are there to install the game on my box?
