Hi all!

I was on about 3 years ago. Played in a few games. Recently I'd thought I'd take a crack at running Stars! again single-player as I've never finished a game solo.

My current workstation is Windows 10 64-bit. This appears to be rather bothersome for getting Stars! to work. Tried the Win3.11 DOSBoxStars.rar from the Wiki article Stars_vs_OS with the latest DOSBox 0.74 but that doesn't work. Can't even get it to run Win 3.11 alone.

Any ideas? Tried searching for solutions but couldn't find any.

(Edit by Ron: I've replaced that old DOSBoxStars with one that includes a portable DOSBox, and it works without having to install DOSBox separately. )

(Edit by Ron: Nov. 1, 2019 Goto https://wiki.starsautohost.org/wiki/Stars_vs_OS and use the StarsWine or DOSBoxStars found there)
