Japanese PC Compendium: Knights of Xentar: Dragon Knight III DOS


Knights of Xentar: Dragon Knight III

Developer: Elf
Year: 1994

Description: The main character is a young warrior named Desmond (known as Takeru in the Japanese version). After liberating Strawberry Fields from an evil curse in his previous adventure, Desmond finds himself in a situation unworthy of his heroic status: robbers have taken all his possessions, including his magic sword, and even his clothes! So the first task for the unsuccessful hero is to get some money. Luckily, the mayor has an assignment for him, for which he is also willing to pay. Desmond accepts the assignment without knowing what it will lead to - traveling all over the world, fighting fearsome enemies, encountering beautiful women, and solving a mystery that will also reveal the secret of his own true identity!




You will need DOSBox to play the game.

Drag the .exe file of the game on the DOSbox shortcut to play.

If dragging the file to DOSbox isn't working, you'll have to do this instead:

-Make a folder for your MS-DOS games. Name it something memorable, like "DOSGAMES."

-Run DOSBox.

-Mount the game directory. Assign your virtual DOSBox drive a letter; this is where you will mount the game folder that you created.

To mount the game directory to your hard drive, type in "Z:\>MOUNT C C:\DOSGAMES". This assumes that your games are on your primary "C" hard drive. If your games are on a different hard drive, substitute the letter of that drive for "C."

-Navigate to the new virtual drive. You will be prompted with a "Z:\>" which allows you to change the directory. Type in the letter of the new virtual drive at the prompt, for example, "C:" for your primary hard drive, to navigate to the new DOSBox directory.

-Run a game by accessing its directory. At the "C:\>" prompt, type in "C:\>CD GAMENAME". ("GAMENAME" is a generic example. Type the actual name of your game in its place.) This will change the command prompt to "C:\GAMENAME>". Locate the file that runs your game and type it into the command prompt. It will look like "C:\GAMENAME>GAMENAME.EXE".

Some older games will have batch (.bat) or .com file extensions instead of .exe.
