- open dosbox options file
- adjust cpu cycles. (max will disable the music)....to adjust on the go use ctrl+f11 or crtl+f12

Oh, gosh, I remember playing this game back on my 386 with 5.25 inch floppies. I believe there was a total of five in the whole set. It was one of the last games to ever exist on floppies as CD-ROM's have well taken over but my family was poor and I was damned lucky to get the 386 computer.

Mi encanta! It's an excellent game, despite the clunky controls!

Hey guys, if you're having trouble playing the game due to copy protection, (basically the game shuts itself off once you're past the intro sequence because you didn't input the correct combination of images) then Right-click the game on the D-Fend menu (or what have you) and say "Edit." Under Profile Program File, change "tatou.com" to "crack.exe"
This will let the game accept any image combination on the software protection screen as correct. Enjoy!

The original Alone in the Dark trilogy was amazing. I still actually have the original games, which I'm proud of. Both 1 and 2 I have the original boxes, diskettes, manuals, and the little extras that came with them. I also have the CD version of both 1 and 2 which had a slightly better version of the soundtrack. LOVE these games!

Best horror game ever. To bad this version requires the manual (which i cant find, its like ALOT of years since i bought it)......

Some people say survival horror got started with Resident Evil. Those people are morons. This is where it all came from and if you ask me, it's still the best one.

Oh man, i still have the floppies for this but no drive. So glad you guys have it for download. I got an epic craving to play the whole series again. Cheers
