To start the game: Download Dosbox (I prefer the zipped version) and open the folder of both Star Control and Dosbox and simply drag the "starcon.exe" over the "dosbox.exe". No configurations needed, you don't even have to know Dosbox-commands to do that. ;)

@Hugo, you need to install frontned software the emulates the hardware of MS-DOS. It will basically act as a game launcher for DOSBox.

I already downloaded star control, but i can not run it.
It says the game can not support full screen versión, but i can not change it.
Can you help on this?

I really miss those days of gaming. Games such as this and MegaTraveller and King's Quest and Police Quest were awe inspiring games. I could play them all as new games today, their stories and premises were so great.
