Hi Glenn,

Than you for your clear instructions.

I am trying to get Space Crusade to work on my PC.

When I follow all of your instructions and finally open the dosbox application to run the game it doesn't automatically open the game.

It just says 'Welcome to dosbox' and 'Have fun!'

Am I doing something wrong?

Hi which site did you download Space Crusade from? It sounds like the dosbox config files didn't save.
