Hi

I also followed your instructions but it asks me for the first word on page 4 line 6...

What now?

Thnx!

Glenn Scrima said...

Hi just type in anything and press enter at the point you are asked this and you will enter the game.

Hi you who had problems with starting the game. Did you press 'enter' in the main menu? Try pressing 'space' instead. That worked for me.

Good luck.

Anonymous said...

Thanks for this, but is there anyway to save the game? Everytime I die, I start at the very beginning of the very first level.

Glenn Scrima said...

Hi I just double checked but it seems there isn't any kind of save function. It may run similar to Mario Bros for the NES in that when you run out of lives the game ends.

Best,
Glenn

Hi, I followed your instructions but at the end I don't have "extract all"
what to do???
tnx!

Glenn Scrima said...

Hi you can use any free or trial zip program to do this as well such as WinZip. You can find these programs at sites like download.com .

Best,
Glenn

Anonymous said...

I have this program but it's the same ....I don't know for which file to use "WinZip"...

Glenn Scrima said...

Hi the file you downloaded from XTC Abandonware is the one you want to use it on. The Dosbox file will install on its own.

Best,
Glenn

Lusty said...

I did everything as stated but when I get to the extracting of the actual folder for the game, it says that there is nothing to extract. Please help

Glenn Scrima said...

Did you download the game from XTC Abandonware or a different site? You can use a program like Winzip if the Windows Zip program is having trouble also and see if that helps.

Glenn

Glenn Scrima said...

Hi do you mean it freezes up. Does the game load at all when you open Dosbox?

Best,
Glenn

PuRpUrInA said...

Glenn Scrima said...

Hi the commands below will need to be saved in the config file for the game to run. You can just copy and paste them in the section [autoexec]

mount c c:\games\lionking
c:
cd lionking
lionking

Glenn

Hannah said...

I have used your instructions before and had no problems. but i recently wiped my computer and loaded windows 7 and now i cannot save the CONF file. it just says access denied. i am running in admin mode so i dont know what to do. what can i do?

Glenn Scrima said...

Hi Hannah, did you try both methods for running in admin (also righting clicking Dosbox and giving permission to the file). Sometimes it doesn't work with the global setting alone until you use this second method:

Hi if you are using the keyboard you need to use the spacebar to jump.

Rebecka said...

Hi!
I am trying to get this game and I don't get the "dosbox" part.
I went to the site but where do I go from there? where is the "downloads tab" ?
=)

Rebecka said...

Forget what I just wrote.. I got that right now, now I have another problem..

" Run the downloaded installer file and install Dosbox on your hard drive in the directory C:\Games\Lionking. Simply entering this will create these folders for you "

I have installed Dosbox and dide the "config -writeconf dosbox.conf" and then press the "Enter" key." etc.

I'm stuck at "Locate and right click on the Dosbox config file. Click "open with" & select notepad." which one and where do I find it?

Anonymous said...

Hy! I did everything as you told, but when I double click on the Dosbox program in the "C:\Games\Lionking" folder , the game doesn't launch.
The Dosbox opens, but I see olny that same black screen, where I typed the config -writeconf etc. before.
All it says in the Dosbox is Z:\>SET BLASTER=A220 I7 D1 H5 T6

I've done all the things needed exactly as you told, so what's the problem?

Hope for your help!

Jordan said...

Hey! Dunno if this is a problem with my keyboard or something, but i seem to have problems making a running jump while playing the game. I can only stand still and jump while hanging on to the directional key, and this makes simba's jump reallly short...does anyone else have this problem?

ben said...
