Hi, I've asked questions on a couple other games, (Space Hulk 1993 and Silent Service II), and was wondering how I could get this up and running on Boxer. (Not Boxer Standalone, or whatever the heck that is, just the normal Boxer). Anything else I should know would be much appreciated. Thanks!

great game but my god, how long is this thing ? its easily got the largest elder scrolls and the longest rpg ive ever played that is possible to complete. if you're looking to fill 100-120 hours of your time and your an elder scrolls fan then Jackpot!!! warning not for begginers !!! this game was/is harder than the other games (Skyrim is super easy comparitively)!

Amazing when it came out. Play as a thief and climb up walls, create your own spells and magic items.... the spell maker was removed after Morrowind. Best dungeon map system, in 3D, you can zoom and rotate. Some of the dungeons are so big you'll need to teleport back to the exit. Definitely grab the daggerfall graphics upgrade and mods though.

I found a few additional tweaks that may be useful. If you want WASD style controls check out the following post:

Aawwwww.... buggerfall... the best of the best... i love this b*tch and i also hate it. i'd gladly play with it again, but those quest bugs... make me mad. just stick to the main quest, no side quests... that's my best advice!

Got it to run 3 years ago no probs in Vista with Dosbox 0.74. Occasionally a loud buzzing sound pops up - usually in dungeons, but after moving around, it disappears. Now at level 13 with Wood Elf with high swim skill and the highest non-magical armour (orangy Daedric) except for gauntlets. For all who find monsters too difficult, get your best weapon & armour u can when starting off, and enter a starter dungeon. Picking off rats, and orcs are probably the easiest. Once you get enough gold, immediately get back to a blacksmith & improve your weapon and armour. Get back to the same starter dungeon, and enter again building up your gold. If health falls below 50% take a nap (make sure no enemies around). Exit & re-enter same dungeon to haul in more gold as monsters & treasure re-spawn after exiting dungeon.

This is the hardest game to get working I've come across so far. *WHAT I WOULD SUGGEST* is downloading this game from the Elder Scrolls official site for free. Upon downloading, there will be a pdf labeled daggerfall_legal_and_installation.pdf. **Follow the instructions in the pft exactly**. Once you've done that (it should finally let you install the Huge installer) all should work properly. After the installation, close DOSBox. Then, follow the instructions within the pdf on how to start Daggerfall (which you will have to do each time). The game should now properly work now.

i tried to play this game before, looked like so much fun but suffers from
one MAJOR f**king problem...ENEMIES ARE JUST TOO POWERFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
they should have made the first enemies you encounter really really weak and then
increase their stats as the game progresses, too bad they didn't do ruined the game for me, can't get too far if enemies who SHOULD BE easy to defeat keep
kicking my ass and i keep dying.
another game that needs a mod to fix this problem of balance lacking.

Okay, the game is telling me that I apparently inserted the wrong disk, despite setting the disk as the game folder itself. Can someone please help me?

DAGGERFALL! Its just the best RPG out there. The first to use Skill Based Leveling,wich made it innovative. TES3-5 all base of this Skill based platform. Every TES game after this one, netted "The Best of E3" I've been playing his game since it came out and my Level 99 Argonian was my champion. The Same Argonian i used in all the rest of the TES series, trust me you will NEVER get bored of this one.

JAY DEE 2015-04-12 -2 points DOS version

found out how,thanks to unofficial elder scroll pages.
Install the game with the largest install size.make a bat file "install /u" this stops checking freespace
Copy all the files from the DAGGER/ARENA2 directory on the CD to the ARENA2 directory where you installed the game. There are some large files which are not installed by the largest install size.
Install the latest patch as desired.DAG213.exe
Edit the Z.CFG file in your Daggerfall directory. Change the PATHCD value to match that of the PATH value. To run the game don't use DAGGER.EXE as you would normally, but instead run the command FALL.EXE Z.CFG. create a batch file to prevent having to type it each time, but don't name it DAGGER.BAT.
Some say you need to add the line set dos4gvm=@dagger.vmc to your Autoexec or your custom batch file, though the game will run without it.

same problem, there are only two img files and neither work.i even downloaded the latest version from the elder,but same problem,asks for trying thru d-fend.i may have to actually burn a disk and try that as deamon tools and virtual clone drive dont seem to work,anyone got this running?

Lord Xarti 2015-04-10 2 points DOS version

How do I actually RUN the game? It says to type: CD c:\dagger & then "DAGGER" to run it so I make that the run path, but it gives an error saying that "You cannot run the game off of the CD and to install the game first EVEN AFTER the installation is completed! Please help as this is VERY aggravating.
