    Me wonders if any of the UO developers know more.....
    (i'll be behind fel vesper bank throwing dice if you want to meet in private)

    really tho, this worked great for seirra with Kings Quest and Space Quest.
    It would be awesome if Dos Box could learn to properly configure and run Pagan and Ultima VII

    I have the Dragon Edition ... I think it should still operate properly on a dual-core AMD system. I'll try it out.

    Dragon Edition was marketed some years back ... Akalabeth right up to U9 (I think). Add-on/variant packs were not included. Has a map and other stuff in the box.

    I haven't opened it in some time, but I do know that the last time I tried anything it was on a 750mhz AMD chip and worked fairly well. The early games ran in a DOS command window as I recall.

    I have tomorrow off (6 x 12 hr shifts for a couple more weeks) and if I can I'll load things up and try them out. XP/SP3 on a 3ghz AMD Athlon dual-core box. Hell, it's worth a shot.
