It should be able to run using DOSBOX. It's pretty easy to use, and I play it that way on Windows XP; I imagine it works the same way for 7.

...Say, you just posted over on the Dragon Warrior board, didn't you?

Yup, sure did! I'm new posting on this site, but I've been lurking for years. Anyway, what is DOSBOX and how do I get it? Also, how much would this go for on Ebay?

DOSBox is an MS-DOS emulator. Basically, it lets you run old programs that Windows has "forgotten" how to handle, by making the computer "pretend" to be a DOS machine. You can download it from...well, I think there's a dosbox.com or something. ^_^

As for the Ultima Collection, I saw copies ranging from $15 + shipping to $175. For comparison, when it was new, it was $20.

tnx for the info. I may end up not getting it due to price and my parents' phobia of downloading things, but thanks anyway, now I at least know what to do if I get an opportunity! :)
