    I'm Stuck guys, got the dos box turbo app, and the manager app. And downloaded a few games off GOG.Com. Problem is there is no program executable in Any of these games, just a setup executable. Does this mean I've gotta transfer to windows, run setup, switch back to android and THEN I can run the game? Or is there an easier way? I don't have a PC, but I do have 4 android devices there must be a way round this.. Please help. Thanks guys/girls.

    Is this app a game emulator?

    Do you own a copy of these games you downloaded on any platform?

    Reason I'm asking is if you don't own the games, downloading them is considered theft. I can't help you with anything along those lines, site doesn't allow it.

    I understand your concerns, but the 3 titles I have are, Baldurs gate 2 and broken sword 3. These were purchased from the website, GOG.com. And the final one was downloaded as free where, that game is lemmings. I will not be offended if you chose to not take part in this thread.

    No, by all means you're cool. :)

    I've never heard of that site, more of a knee jerk there. My apologies. :)

    It'll take a little digging, let me see if I can find anything. :)

    I think the games you purchased will work in WinXP+. It looks like these games were reworked and enhanced to work with current systems and OSes and is not backwards compatible. So it won't work with DOS.

    However, I thought some GOG copies of the games included the original DOS versions. If not, you can check 'abandonware' sites and see. Though be cautious about it too.
