GOG version works on non-Windows?

I want to try and play LBA2 on my Android device, but my issue is that of course I have no CD inserted so the game will not get past the CD detection part.

If I were to buy the GOG version, is the CD check removed? Also, is it possible to copy the game files to my Android device and run the DOSBOX there? Or do they prevent this somehow?

Mount the image with your DOS emulator, if it works so that you can mount and install, but not play, then you have to get a better image file of the disc, not all regular ones work with LBA2 since it sort of has 2 parts, the game part and the music part, try to copy the disc with some raw format and it should work

I did this on my iPad and it worked (It may be a bit slow since it's not optimized)

I think the GOG version is already built to work without CD and with music files & stuff. So basically if you can run DOSBox on your android device you should be able to copy the content from the GOG version and run it. HavenĀ“t tried it myself but GOG version is stated to work on PC & Mac.

Maybe you could have a look at this.
Maybe yes ... maybe no ... maybe ... 'cause its yours!
