Description of Albion

Albion is a severely underrated RPG from the makers of two Thalion hits Amberstar and Ambermoon, which became instant hits on the Amiga but unknown on the PC.

The game shines with a richly detailed story, a huge and well-realized gameworld, a novel use of both 2D and 3D views, and some unique puzzles that are a far cry from the normal find-a-button-to-open-door puzzles found in most RPGs. As Tom Driscoll, a pilot who crash-landed on the exotic planet of Albion, you will make many friends and foes in your quest to find the mothership Toronto. The game is truly an epic adventure that spans vast areas and cities, all of which are teeming with colorful characters who always seem to have something to say. Puzzles are adventure-game style (i.e. use items from your inventory) mixed with standard find-secret-door-and-avoid-traps puzzles. None of them is dull, however, because each building and dungeon you enter is so well detailed and differentiated from each other, that exploration is never boring.

With great graphics, fun 3D combat sequences, and a truly epic and captivating plot that could make a real novel, Albion is simply a must-have for all scifi & fantasy RPG fans. Highly recommended, especially to fans of Wizardry games.

I gave up on trying to load the game after letting Boxer chew on it for over 48 hours straight.

Be sure to run the setup.exe and select the sound options, then launch the game. Otherwise you get an error on launch. Follow the directions from 'Help' post below for DOSbox configuration except don't call ALBION.EXE as he stated but rather ALBION.BAT.

mount C C:\Albion\
imgmount D C:\Albion\cd\Albion.cue -t cdrom

run 'DOSBox 0.74 Options.bat' in your DOSbox folder and it should launch in notepad. Select file save as in notepad to see the directory where the dosbox config file is located.
copy the DOSbox.exe and the dosbox-0.74.conf into the game directory
create a shortcut to DOSbox.exe and add the command line parameter as follows
-conf "dosbox-0.74.conf" to the properties of the shortcut.

for example:
E:\DOS\Albion\Albion\DOSBox.exe -conf "dosbox-0.74.conf"

launch the game from that shortcut

First get the latest version of D Fend; open it up, go to add program, install from source media, top file you'll select albion.cue. and then select setup as your setup program. run it, install the game, then type setup to set your config, exit. Right click on game and it should be installed and work.

This was my favourite game as a kid, Brings back so many memories, loved the ambient noises, the music, the world and the art style. I'd pay to have this game remastered, or even remade with modern day and age graphics (2017).

Nice game with great atmosphere.
I was way into a dungeon with no way back to town when i found out one needed seeds to cast magic.
My last save in the city was just overwritten a few moments ago, so i resigned from the game.
If it weren't for this, i would have played it twice maybe.

I was playing with the demo for years - could not get the full game. And when I had it, there was too many other stuff to to deal with and so I've never finished the game. Hmm.. Hope I will have enough time for that once.

How I did this:
Install DOSBox in C:\Albion\

Unzip the albion file from this site somewhere on the computer, go into the albion folder you just unzipped and move all the files and folders there over to C:\Albion\

DOSBox.exe, ALBION.EXE, dosbox.conf should be in the same directory now.

Open dosbox.conf in notepad.
Change these settings for more optimized graphics:

check "fullscreen=true"
set "fullresolution=desktop"
set "output=ddraw"

set "aspect=true"
set "scaler=none"

scroll down to the bottom of the page to the [autoexec] part:

# Lines in this section will be run at startup.
# You can put your MOUNT lines here.

mount C C:\Albion\
imgmount D C:\Albion\cd\Albion.cue -t cdrom

rightclick on dekstop shorcut for dosbox,
select properties.
make target to: C:\Albion\DOSBox.exe

(so it uses dosbox.conf and not -userconf)
-or just delete the shortcut and make a new.

I hope this helped :)

i have a question.. i followed the solution instructions and imgmount and all of that.. installed game and got it running.. once i close dosbox and try to go back to the game. how do i do this??

Shortcut needed 2015-02-03 0 point DOS version

Is there a way to make the dosbox.config allow you to, after you mount the game folder and go to c drive to just cd the albion folder and run either albion.exe or albilow.bat? Because typing in the imgmount and all that other stuff just to play the game every time is annoying.

The real solution 2014-10-25 1 point DOS version

write this command on DOSBOX
imgmount d C:\dosbox\albion\albion\cd\albion.bin -t iso
you must put adress where the "albion.bin" depends on where you located it
Then go to virtual D: drive and this makes it that you are actually inside the cd files
After this, type SETUP.EXE and Albion installation program will run.
asking you to install it on a drive (NOTE: you must have mounted a virtual drive before doing all of the above to install)
The program succesfully installs and takes you to the mounted drive
With all done, you can type "ALBILOW.BAT" and the game runs

Hello, i cant play the game. I tried to run it with daemon tools and dosbox but it keeps telling that i should insert the CD. Maybe i need to play it with Win95?
