    Thank you so much. I'm giving 5 stars for the great customer service, and the effort put into this app. This app is the best Dos emulator on the play store, and I only needed a refund because I couldn't use it(note: my original 1 star rating was not put for dissatisfaction of the app, but only to gain the developers attention)

    Any guide on how to get the GoG version of colonization to work? I see there is a guide for fallout, but while I have tried applying the latest DOS patch to my colonization files, it doesn't ever load, just displays a black screen. S4, settings 64mb, soundblaster pro 1, 7k or 8k cycles, no frame skip. running colonize in the colonize directory.

    I used to program assembly language graphics demos and libraries in the late 80s and early 90s. I hit this emulator with those expecting it to crash and burn. All of my processor/video-card hardware-specific programs ran flawlessly. Nothing's 100% but this emulator is as close as you're going to get. Got all of the ID games and Mechwarrior 2 running. Tip: Get an IOGear bluetooth keyboard with
