Just a tip: If you play the stock market in this game it will crash when your balance goes over 387 nontillion dollars, but if you keep your balance below that, you can play as long as you like.

You have to mount the game folder to C:
mount c: d:\games\capitalism

Then you have to mount the same game folder to another drive, but as type of cdrom
mount h: d:\games\capitalism -t cdrom -ioctl

Then you have to change drive to the C drive you mounted

Then launch the game

I managed to play capitalism in dosbox Linux doing the following (thanks to @Good guy greg)

mount d /home/myuser/ -t cdrom -ioctl


# Note that /home/myuser is an arbitrary folder that must not contain capitalism CD. Just any folder of your hard drive

This version requires a CD but none is provided.

Trying to play the game via Dosbox on a laptop without a cd-player, and they ask me to insert the CD.

Have tried to mount a virtual drive via Daemon Tools, but the game will not start, Dosbox just stops.

Okay, I've followed the instructions here from Greg and the game is not working. Says I need to insert the CD.

This has been, since 1995 until today (2016), the largest educational games economic strategy, which was awarded a "International Recognition Award" ... !

About missing scenarios: This is a CD-Rip version of the game (see .nfo textfile in the archive).

roarke 2014-02-15 0 point DOS version

did anyone figure out the problem with not getting the scenerios?

Tincho 2013-11-05 0 point DOS version

¡What a good game! But: could anyone play the scenarios? Because i couldn't... What can i do? Thanks a lot!

I found an answer on google for the save game problem on this forum.

Follow these steps with dosbox.

Mount C C:\gamefolder
Mount D D:\ -t cdrom -ioctl

I have just tested it and succesfully saved a game, quit, quit dosbox, started the game on dosbox again and loaded the saved game. Hopefully it works for you as well.

Den_er_da_hvid 2013-02-24 -3 points DOS version

I have no trouble getting the game to work, but I cant save a game. It just says "not enough memory". It is propably becourse it is mounted as cdrom, but how to get around this?

jkk 2013-02-24 0 point DOS version

I'm using the version from GOG games. I tried mounting it as a CDROM as described above but it didn't work. However, uninstalling it from the C drive and re-installing it on a different drive did work.

good guy greg 2013-02-04 -1 point DOS version

I mounted it as a cdrom with dosbox and it worked, however when I try to save games it says "insufficient disk space the game is not saved"

Brmpf 2013-01-17 -1 point DOS version

Just mount it as a CDROM drive in Dosbox, then it will work.
mount d: [yourpath] -t cdrom

Phreeze 2012-10-31 0 point DOS version

type setsound.bat to set up sound. It's the dos versioun so youneed dosbox.

Less cool: it asks for the cd ;)
