How To Play Daggerfall On Your Windows 7 PC

Before you can play Daggerfall game on your Windows 7 PC, first you need to find the game. You'll probably prefer to download Daggerfall game directly from publisher Bethesda Softworks, which released the title for free to celebrate the game's 15th anniversary.
You'll need to use the free DOS emulator DOSBox to play the game on a modern machine. Grab the latest version of DOSBox and install it to your hand drive. Remember that any filename over eight caracters will truncate to match the old DOS 8.3 naming conventions, so make sure to create a separate folder for housing your DOS game files with a short and simple name, such as C:\DOS. After downloading a copy of daggerfall, unzip it in a subdirectory of C:\DOS, like C:\DOS\DaggerCD.
DOSBox offers advanced users a variety of config settings to tweak, but we're going to keep it simple and show you the bare minimum you need to play Daggerfall on a windows 7 OS. To get started, select the Edit Options item in the DOSBox folder on your start menu.
This action will open the DOSBox--0.74 conf configuration file, where you can tinker with the variables of the emulated DOS environment. Scroll down to the {dosbox}section and change the 'memsize' variable to read memsize=32. Save and close the file, and then launch DOSBox in windowed mode from the Start menu; you'll find yourself staring at a basic DOS command prompt like 'z\>\', so you'll need to tell the emulator where to look for your Daggerfall files. This process is called mounting a virtual drive, and you can easily accomplish it by typing mount c c:\dos-freesize 1000 and pressing Enter.
Next you need to emulate a virtual CD-ROM drive from which to install your copy of Daggerfall. Type mount d c:\dos\daggercd-t cdrom-lagel Daggerfall to do so. This line tells the emulator to treat all the files in c:\dos\dagger as though they were stored on a physical CD labeled Daggerfall, without all the hassle of actually needing to find a working Daggerfall CD. Now switch your DOSBox emulator to the D:\ drive by typing d: and pressing enter, and then type install. This will initiate the Daggerfall install program; agree to all terms; and install the game to c:\Dagger on your hard drive; making sure to set the install size to Huge.
