This is something that is known to be possible in various ways, but nobody has yet come up with a reliable, repeatble, general method of getting this to work.  This page can be used to summarise the methods, with individual instructions on their own pages.

If you have a method, or suggestion for a method, create it on a new page here on the wiki, and put a link to it down below in the relevant section (e.g. a method using WineX goes under WineX).

NOTE: A method is classified as "Has Worked" if you know it works.  It counts as "Working" once lots of other people have got it working.

-=dosemu=-

Does not work.

-=dosbox=-

Does not work, though work on protected mode support continues.

-=Bochs=-

Untested.

-=WINE=-

Has worked, testing required.

See TTDWineDave.

-=WineX=-

Has worked, but not yet repeatable or reliable.  Several methods have been suggested, but in all cases many have failed to get results when reproducing them.

Methods under consideration:

  • Using a binary package, for those willing to pay: TTDWinexHan

 TTDWinexHan has worked for me (mellis)

  • Using CVS, for cheapskates like the author of this method: TTDWinexChris

-=ttdload=-

This is a port of TTDPatch and the latest information suggests that it is not up-to-date (based on one of the pre-2.0 betas)

(Any word from the PatchTeam on whether this will be maintained along with DOS and Windows if it proves successful? - C.)
