When it says illegal command is this in Dosbox itself? Is the C: drive mounting correctly?

How do you switch the action keys around? I can't do anything cuz the actions keys on my comp are all over place and I'd like to adjust that..

Hi, check out the extras section on Abandonia. It usually has a users guide copy from when the game was released.

Go to Program Files.
Get into DosBox folder.
Find "DOSBox 0.74 Options" and edit it using notepad(move to the end of file).
And paste the code as shown in image below.
mount c c:\
cd mk2

where mk2 is the gaming folder stored in c drive and mk2.exe is the executable file for that game.
