I just installed DOSBox for playing an old AD&D game.
when i installed the game and clicked play, a box appears saying "Graphics Adapter Type: (1) CGA (2) EGA (3) Tandy.

what do I put here? Ive never used DOS before

I think i would go for EGA first,most old games i have tried worked with EGA,but as there is only 3 choices try them all and see witch works best.

OMG, lol. its working. I just realised how bad the graphics were. still good games tho :)

Assume it works on Enhanced Graphics Adaptor (EGA)...... Current default is SVGA and I wonder if Tandy ever did colour! Still Tandy always sang to their own sheet.

I never could get MM7 to work with xp,it installed ok and even started but had errors as soon as the intro started i tried allsorts in the end i went out and brought MM9 and traded MM7 in, witch was a much better game graffically but the same kinda gameplay.
But i wasnt bothered cos i finished MM7 when i was running 98se.
