The Settlers II: Gold Edition
DOS - 1997
Description of The Settlers II: Gold Edition
The Settlers 2 is a good follow-up of the first game, with more possibilities, really incredible graphics and animations and a very low technical requirement when it was released (worked on a 486DX33). Some of the weaknesses: no real multiplayer (you had to play on a split screen with two mouses and share the keyboard) and only two speed for in-game time, making you wait just idling for 5 minutes sometime. Anyway, a top game remade in 3D in 2006: The Settlers II 10th Anniversary.
The Gold edition contains the original game and the Mission CD, which contains a new campaign, 12 new maps and an editor.
You should also check out Widelands, a free and open-source remake of The Settlers II.

Don't make things up, KC. It's not GOG.com or Steam buying the games, it is just the original IP holders realising there is still an interest in them. Also abandonware does not mean free, nor ever has.

These games USED to be free, but it seems everyone and his brother (Steam, GOG, etc,) are buying everything worth anything on this site. And here is Myabandonware advertising the people stealing these "free" games right out from under our feet! What a bunch of BS!

Launchbox is just a launcher, you can put any DOSBox you want on it, I use SVN-Daum (mainly for the v-sync to avoid crazy screen tearing).

Why are you all using JUST DOSbox? Use the far superior LaunchBox *(Which includes DOSbox and many more emulators) that does a lot of this behind the scenes work for you? I got the newest version *(4.6 as of this typing) and it works like a dream for me.

David: Yes, if you install the free Dosbox program it will work in that.

I was 6 year old, when my dad bought this game and I played it. This is the best game of all the settlers saga, no doubt.

get DE-Fend Reloaded to play older games. GUI based, easy to use, has many features. free download last I checked

To play + sound (im running Win 7 64-bit)
Download and install 'DosBox'
type 'mount d c:\s2g' (the directory)
For sound run the setup up first
type 'setup' instead of 's2' in the steps above. (mine work with one of the blasters)
Game is a city builder with some basic combat. At the time it was 7or8/10, but its aged quite badly in terms of gameplay, now 4or5/10. Game is enjoyable, but mainly for nostalgic players.

Ladies and gentlemen, for those of you who need to use it in a more modern version of windows, you may need a 3rd party program. Dosbox is a game emulator that you must mount the image of the game onto. There is a link provided below in 'how to play abandonwares' that gives information on different emulators. For dosbox, all you must do is load the program, and you'll be given a 'dos' prompt. You must mount the image of the drive location of the games you'd like to play. For instance, if my games folder is located in c:\games I would need to type
mount d c:\games you then change directories by typing d: and the games you have will be in the folders assigned. To change directories within a drive, for instance, if the game WAS in c:\games\s2g which is how settlers 2 comes, I'd change to d: and then type cd s2g and you're in the folder with the game, type s2 and the game comes up.
Other noteable button combos for dosbox are alt + enter will maximize the screen, and on most games ctrl+f12 speeds up and ctrl+f11 slows down. That's as generally comprehensive as I can be in a comment.

Hi, what programs do I need besides WINzip because every time I unzip the file and select either 'Install' or 'Setup' it doesn't let me do anything! Really looking forward to playing this game again!
Help would be great :)
