Is there any reason you cant use the SWP port? (
I made the first post on the VB!

with dosbox you need a lot of free processing power to run build games. it is best to just use a source port

As said before, best off using a port, like SWP.

That problem usually occurs if the game files were copied to another computer, I don't know why or how, it might be a primitive form of copy protection.

If you must run it under DosBox, try re-installing it whilst you are in DosBox, as the program might be thinking that DosBox is another machine, and that you are trying to run it illegally.
