The games will not run using DosBox. I have included the patches which are supposed to fix these games so they work. There are only five files you can open in DosBox:

If I try opening DOS4GW.EXE I get a "fatal error 1004 Syntax is DOS4GW"



If I open SKYNET.EXE I get "Error: SysInit (can't open archive)"

The only thing that does work is the sound set up. It works and tests perfectly.

Compared to other Terminator games of the time, this one was really good. I think it used the same engine Bethesda used to make Elder Scrolls Arena & Daggerfall, because you had an overworld you would walk through, then buildings you could enter via doors in order to go to a seperate "inside the building" map. The problem was (as was the case with most Bethesda games) the game had bugs, would crash, etc, making it darn near impossible to beat.

This was basically just an improved version of Future Shock, but it was really good. I really wasn't very successful.

Word is that this game was actually created on August 4, 1997, and became self-aware on August 29th.
