What are you using to play the game on Windows 98? Did you buy the game from GOG.com?

I doubt he did, since he said he can't connect this computer to the internet. Unless he downloaded it on another computer and somehow moved the game there.

Hi, welcome to the MBN!

Since the computer runs Windows 98, you could try running the game using original .exe (without DosBox). Just reboot in DOS mode, and start the RELENT.EXE in the game folder (\Program Files\GOG.com\Little Big Adventure). You may need to configure the hardware settings with SETUP.EXE.

You'll need to burn LBA.DAT (which is practically a cue sheet for LBA.GOG) into a disc first though, and you'll need to do the things above with the disc in the drive.

Not every system that runs DOS has enough DOS memory to run LBA 1.

I believe the first internet-browsing comp in my house had windows 95.
Now that i remember, I have a compaq laptop with win 95, a 256 color screen and it has internet explorer installed on it.

You can't save in LBA 1. The game automatically save each time you enter a new scene.
