Description of Virtuoso
3D shooters of the old kind were known for having somewhat constructed game stories. But this one beats them all. Obviously Motivetime thought: "Let's make a 3D shooter with a rock'n roll hero and cool rock'n roll music!" But then they face a tough question: in what context should such a game take place and would still make sense... Probably a little rock'n rolling gang fight? No!
Motivetime had the glory idea to simply let their rock'n roll hero play in a virtual reality computer game which happens to be the game Virtuoso. Whooo, so you are actually playing a computer game in which the hero is playing a computer game. And so Motivetime were able to put their rock'n roll hero in all kinds of absurd scenarios... Ok, the story is stupid.
The game? Not much better. A simple 3D shooter, very Doom-like, just with boring levels, worse graphics and hardly any new ideas. One of the few positive things to mention is the nice music and the average till good sound effects. This is the floppy version of the game that doesn't include the terrible CD music tracks. This game is not cracked, so be sure to get the near complete copy protection answers list below.

Ok guys I figured out just did the command:
and it installed somehow into folder and subfolder c
anyway to spare you the trouble here's the game already installed:
Just extracted to any folder you want, mount this folder in dosbox and play the game.
*Admin feel free to add to download section if desired
Game installed now we need to copy protection pdf, gotta find it otherwise unable to play the game, it asks to type something from a piece of paper that probably came with the game at the time it was released.

Can't install this game, heres what I already tried:
1. Extracted archive to C:\virtuoso
2. Opened DOSBox and typed the folowing commands:
mount d c:\virtuoso -t cdrom (to mount folder as cd-rom)
mount c c:\games\dosprogs (this is the folder I put my DOS games)
3. Instalation folder and destination folder mounted time to install the game:
and we get a error, can't create the folder to install...
Anyone can solve this?
