Nostalgic PoP

Hi All,

Ok now what I mean by PoP is - Prince of Persia. I dont know as to how many could figure out as to what it is.... For some nostalgic moments, it was a DOS (Disk Operating System) game long back when I used to play it in my dad's no-harddisk computer using a 5 and a quarter inch floppy disk.

But gone are those days and now these days we have got recent PoP games like 3D games of PoP.

Here I would let you know as to how to install the old and the first PoP game for all of your recalling moments. Also this post works for both Windows and Linux.

1. The Windows Way --->>

Hit your browser to Abandonia Site and search for Prince. Download the zip file and type Ctrl+R and type cmd. Finally cd into that folder where you have saved it and then type prince. Thats it you are done.

2. The Geeky Way --->>

Ok this is for Linux Geeks. Search for Dosbox in your fav Linux OS. Configure it compile it andn then install it. For all Debian folks - Dosbox comes by default.

Once your installation is done -- Press Alt+F2 and then type Konsole / Gnome-terminal and type dosbox inside the terminal.

cd to that directory.

Give the below command -->>

$mount x prince/

Then type "x:" (Without the quotes)

Finally type prince.

Thats it you are done.


Hope you all liked this post.

The same processes works for other DOS games like Dave, Pacmania, etc etc. The same site gets you all the games too.

Thanks abandonia for such a wonderful free site.

Thank you all,
Ananth Gouri
