To quote: I created a PKG with all software needed and ready configured mounts to install any DOS-Game from USB without having to create a PKG for each one. I call it DosMount

The purpose is to make it as easy as possible to install any game as if you were on your PC (or even easier)

In related news, [Register or Login to view links] has made available what he calls GoodFrag's Spam Remover for Mateo Godlike's DOS releases.

To quote: Hi all, I wish there was no need to write something like this, but sadly, there is.

What this does: This looks on your PS3 for any of "mateogodlike's" DOS PKG's you have installed installed and removes the childish ads he slapped on each of his titles.

How to use this: Install the PKG, run the app, follow the prompt to press R3 then Square, and exit the app when finished.
Then, next time you run one of his "releases", the ad will disappear!

What this doesn't do: Add controls to any of his packages (quite frankly, releasing games without mapped controls is pretty dumb, but I'm not here to fix his mistakes, just get the ads off our XMB's)

Will this work on Mateo's future releases? No, but if he insists on still packing his name into everything, I'll release an update to fix the new titles as well as these.

I looked at what you did, didn't you know you could just map the game folder instead of mounting each specific folder separately? Sadly Dopsbox has the same 8-character-foldername-restriction that older builds of MS-DOS had. Mapping each folder ensures the right SFO ends up in the right folder without any truncating.

Why did you release this? Doesn't he deserve credit for his work? His artwork bares his name, that's more than enough IMO. (besides, he spent more time on the "art" than the packages themselves)

So, hopefully some of you find this helpful, I know I couldn't stand SPAM on my XMB, now you don't have to either!

Finally, the DOSMount help video is available below via YouTube!

Would it be possible to converge all these DOS game pkgs to one thread? I could literally make 100 today and post new threads.

BTW, remember playing this game years ago on DOS 5.0.

Here is a recent Windows package from the developer, available for free at elderscrolls.com/arena.

My guess is, it would be if you found the original dos version and used the DOStoPS3 app to convert it... worth a try anyway!

this might be a stupid question, but would it be possible to play morrowind (or to be completly off topic, vampire the masqurade bloodlines) on ps3 with dos to ps3 or something similar?

Since the release of DOStoPS3 many PS3 homebrew enthusiasts have been porting DOS games to the PlayStation 3, and this weekend French user sephirothff has done so with The Elder Scrolls Arena and The Elder Scrolls II Daggerfall for fans of the series.

To quote, roughly translated: We have a little fun and discover or rediscover titles only known the Elder Scroll, the imminent release of Skyrim put me in mind to run the first two games of the series on PS3 via DOSBox.

This small project aims to run the game The Elder Scrolls correctly on PS3.

The first two games of the series is free on the official website of the series (elderscrolls.com) so we can enable us to distribute and adapt. About The Elder Scrolls 3 I think we can forget a port on the job saw this crazy ask, the game is commercially available PC.

Here is The Elder Scrolls Arena and Daggerfall The Elder Scrolls, but both games work but row for the moment, so feel free to experiment with different configurations in the file-0.74.conf dosbox and you can also map the keyboard buttons on your controller (a keyboard and mouse works too) with the file-mapping 0.74.map both are in the folder.

Dosbox in / dev_hdd0/game/TESA00001 and TESD00001 (you can also map the buttons directly involved with the L3 button, however, must be repeated each time the game for this solution). If you have a better config to provide, post them here, it will change the proposed version.
