I tried installing the data files but I had no success. Can you provide a sample directory listing of ux0:/data/f2bgl so that I could try imitating the exact directory structure?

I tried the data files from the demo and full CD editions of the DOS version.

Thanks,
Aurora

You have to extract the installed game inside ux0:/data/f2bgl/data, not ux0:/data/f2bgl.

Yup, I did that.

I extracted the files and folders in ux0:/data/f2bgl/data.

My directory listing in that folder was:
DATA/
DELPHINE.INI
TRIGO.DAT

You need also TEXT/ and VOICE/ directories if you use the full PC release.
At last, if you use the demo, you don't need them, but i'm not sure it works, i don't give a try to it.

Btw, here is the instructions of the README.txt:

Code: Select all

You will need the original files of the PC release or PC demo.

By default, the program will try to load the game data files from the current
directory. The expected directory structure is :

	DELPHINE.INI
	TRIGO.DAT    - optional
	DATA/
	DATA/DRIVERS/
	DATA/SOUND/
	INSTDATA/    - optional
	TEXT/        - not present with demo version
	VOICE/       - not present with demo version
