Hi Glenn..first thanks for your great guides. This is concerning Gauntlet. I havd xp pro, am admin, and followed your instructions to a T. The intro started, selected 1 player, and then the character and then hit enter and the screen is blank..the game never started. Any thoughts on getting it running? thanks..tim

Hi Tim, I would first try an earlier version of Dosbox. Sometimes an update to Dosbox with new added features can cause issues for games that ran without a problem before. Let me now if this helps at all.
