1) Download the game from www.amuletsandarmor.com. Unzip the files into a directory. In these instructions, we'll assume you are a Windows machine and use the folder C:\Games\AA for your installation directory.
2) Go to http://www.dosbox.com/download.php?main=1 and download a DOSBox version for your device. In Windows, Amulets & Armor has been proven to work with DOSBox 0.74. Install DOSBox.
3) Run DOSBox.
4) It will appear with a Z:\ drive prompt. Enter the following commands:
mount c c:\Games\AA c: AA
5) No setup should be necessary as the game has already been configured for the proper sound system.
Using DOSBox IPX for Multiplayer
1 - Run DOSBox 0.74 Options.bat, and scroll down to where you see the line "ipx=false". Change it to "ipx=true".
2 - Run Hamachi, and connect to each other on a private network.
3 - Run DOSBox, you'll get both a status window, and another window with a prompt that looks like Z:\>
4 - Have the server host (me in our case) enter the command "ipxnet startserver".
5 - Then have the other player(s) enter the command "ipxnet connect #.###.##.###", putting in the IP address of the host there. This is the IP address of the host on the Hamachi network, not the host's actual IP address.
6 - The host should get an alert in his DOSBox status window saying someone connected to his ipx server.
7 - Both players enter the command "mount c c:\Games\AA", where c:\Games\AA is whatever folder you've got Amulets and Armor installed in.
8 - Type "c:" to then navigate the prompt to that directory.
9 - Type "Setup.exe >NUL" to run the Amulets and Armor setup program.
10 - Choose Network Game.
