Currently using a virtual machine to run DOS updated to Win95 (I first had MS-DOS and then installed win95 on MS-DOS) 256 mb of RAM

I have all the "Elders Scrolls: Arena" files, I execute arena and I get "Not enough EMS"

So I added this line DEVICE=C:\WINDOWS\EMM386.EXE to the config.sys file

Still won't work

Then I added  noems d=64 x=a000-c7ff i=c800-f7ff x=f800-ffff at the end (all his code I got it from the internet)

Maybe I should try adding this rem DEVICE=C:\windows\EMM386.EXE 28000 ram d=64 x=a000-c7ff frame=c800 i=d000-f7ff x=f800-ffff at the end


Anyways I still get the not enough EMS error


So I executed the Install file but it tells me it can only be installed from a floppy disk so I tried to create a floppy drive image and inject all the games files but apparently the game is like 9 megas or 20 or so and the max floppy disk size is 2.88 mb

So I find it imposible to play or install the elder scrolls arena


Can anybody help me?
