Description of The Settlers II: Gold Edition
The Settlers 2 is a good follow-up of the first game, with more possibilities, really incredible graphics and animations and a very low technical requirement when it was released (worked on a 486DX33). Some of the weaknesses: no real multiplayer (you had to play on a split screen with two mouses and share the keyboard) and only two speed for in-game time, making you wait just idling for 5 minutes sometime. Anyway, a top game remade in 3D in 2006 (The Settlers II 10th Anniversary).
The Gold edition contains the original game and the Mission CD, which contains a new campaign, 12 new maps and an editor.
You should also check out Widelands, a free and open-source remake of The Settlers II.

Why are you all using JUST DOSbox? Use the far superior LaunchBox *(Which includes DOSbox and many more emulators) that does a lot of this behind the scenes work for you? I got the newest version *(4.6 as of this typing) and it works like a dream for me.

David: Yes, if you install the free Dosbox program it will work in that.

I was 6 year old, when my dad bought this game and I played it. This is the best game of all the settlers saga, no doubt.

To play + sound (im running Win 7 64-bit)
Download and install 'DosBox'
type 'mount d c:\s2g' (the directory)
For sound run the setup up first
type 'setup' instead of 's2' in the steps above. (mine work with one of the blasters)
Game is a city builder with some basic combat. At the time it was 7or8/10, but its aged quite badly in terms of gameplay, now 4or5/10. Game is enjoyable, but mainly for nostalgic players.

Ladies and gentlemen, for those of you who need to use it in a more modern version of windows, you may need a 3rd party program. Dosbox is a game emulator that you must mount the image of the game onto. There is a link provided below in 'how to play abandonwares' that gives information on different emulators. For dosbox, all you must do is load the program, and you'll be given a 'dos' prompt. You must mount the image of the drive location of the games you'd like to play. For instance, if my games folder is located in c:\games I would need to type
mount d c:\games you then change directories by typing d: and the games you have will be in the folders assigned. To change directories within a drive, for instance, if the game WAS in c:\games\s2g which is how settlers 2 comes, I'd change to d: and then type cd s2g and you're in the folder with the game, type s2 and the game comes up.
Other noteable button combos for dosbox are alt + enter will maximize the screen, and on most games ctrl+f12 speeds up and ctrl+f11 slows down. That's as generally comprehensive as I can be in a comment.

Hi, what programs do I need besides WINzip because every time I unzip the file and select either 'Install' or 'Setup' it doesn't let me do anything! Really looking forward to playing this game again!
Help would be great :)
