Hi gang. I found a nice panzer game called "Across the Rhine".
It won't work on Windows XP, so I tried it in Dosbox it gets to the end of the mission selection screen.
And dies. The error in Dosbox is:

"Accont enable A20 line, XMS manager required"

Ugh. I hate EMS and and XMS crap. What does this mean? Why did the game get that far and then go kaputt? :(

I have no idea about Dosbox, but 'XMS managers' are for example HIMEM, EMM386 or QEMM.

Now you see the violence inherent in the system!

Dosbox has a very exhaustive list of what game been tested and work with it. Any other games are "play at your own risk"...
