Saving in Wizardry 6 using DosBox
Sup. Still new to playing games in DosBox and I still don't know how to save certain games in that needs a drive (i assume floppy disks) to save in while i'm playing in DosBox. In this case, Wizardry 6. Help a guy out here, please?

I think this is the same reason I gave up trying to get Wizardry 6 to work, a while back.

More info needed.
In anycase, by far the best place for this question is at:
Follow the guides for question posting and someone will help you. An incredibly knowledgeable bunch over at Vogons, if not the most patient (Don't ask the question in the same way there as you have here. More information is needed. A copy of the DosBox config file you are using for the game is always the best place to start.)Originally Posted by CROCONOUGHTKEY

It's pretty easy. You need to mount an A: drive. So when you load up DOSBox just type:
mount a "c:\path-to-where-you-want-the-save-to-go"
mount c "c:\path-to-where-wizardry-vi-is"
And then when you save the game it'll ask you to insert a disk. Just press return and it'll save it to the directory you mounted as A: drive.

Dunno if you got this working yet, Voon, but I was able to save my game by doing what Wizardry said with one difference:
I didn't mount an A drive at all, and when I went into the game I went to Game Configuration and cleared out the save directory (so it was blank).
Now it's saving the SAVEGAME.DBS file to the same directory as the rest of the game files -- but it seems to be working. =)
