NHL95PC, Dosbox Howto

Recommended Posts

Here are instructions how to run NHL95PC on Dosbox.

Get the game and Dosbox. Make new directories on your hard drive, like c:\nhl95 and cd-directory under it, like c:\nhl95\cd. Copy game cd files to c:\nhl95\cd.

Start Dosbox and do following mounting:

MOUNT c: c:\

MOUNT h: c:\nhl95\cd

On Dosbox, go to h:, commanding this:

h:

Run installation, by typing install:

install

Give drive letter c as installation drive. Put on installation path:

c:\nhl95\

Finish the installation and start game by typing:

hockey

Game should start, go ahead and win Stanley cup!

To make mounting automatic when Dosbox starts, add 3 lines to the end of dosbox.conf file:

MOUNT c: c:\
MOUNT h: c:\nhl95\cd

cd c:\nhl95

Then you have to just type hockey next time you start Dosbox, to play NHL95. (Well, you can even start game automatically, by adding hockey as last line on dosbox.conf.)

If game is laggy, you can add more cycles to Dosbox by pressig CTRL-F12.

Happy gaming!

Got this and the 94 version up and running with DOSBOX!:big_smile:

Very Cool!

Any way to get a controller to work with DosBox?

I did a couple searches but I am having no luck with it.

I use a program called xpadder, it maps the keyboard presses to your controller buttons.

Takes a little setup, but not too bad

I also use xpadder. I have button combinations mapped so that I can hook with a single button press and fake a shot with a single button press. I also have the line change keys mapped to my controller and the mouse mapped to my analog stick so I can navigate menus with my controller.

I wonder if you can do multiple installs of the games.

It works.  Just don't create the desktop shortcut.  Create it manually afterwards.
