I have downloaded the 5 orig floppies to my mac, and have dosbox and am trying to install it with the included dos instructions since I don't have windows, however in the dos only folder when installing I get this message- "Can't find text entry for 'videoPrompt'. This can be caused by a missing INSTALL.TXT or INSTALL.HLP file Module: J:TEXTICT.CPP(148)" I dont think any files are missing though since I downloaded strait from mark's site- http://www.markseibert.com/the_full_game.htm , anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

Hi Kate, are you using a vintage mac or a modern one? The game will run differently on a mac if its the PC version and you are running it through Dosbox. This is due to OS X having a different file structure from Windows. If you are running the Mac version of the game on a modern Mac then you will likely run into a bunch of problems since it was a pre OS X game that is also coded for Power PC Mac's. I don't have a hard copy of the game on hand so unfortunately I can't be of much help for the floppy install. You might want to try using boot camp or running parallels and running the Abandonia version /w Dosbox through that.

Best,
Glenn

When I double clicked the dosbox, it said illegal command sierra. What do I do to make it work?

Hi did the C: drive mount correctly in Dosbox?

Best,
Glenn

due to the problem that it said "illegal command sierra"

instead of write
"mount c c:\games\peppers
c:
sierra"

write
"mount c c:\games\peppers
c:
cd pepper
sierra"
