Thank you, thank you, thank you.  Smiley

Finally got the game up and running. I didn't expect the solution to be that simple. Hope all newbies who face the same problem can refer to this thread for help.

Thanks again Novus. Owe you one.

I have the Content packages in the same directory as the Installer but for some reason when running Installer it cannot detect the Content packages and will try to look for it online. Of course, my PC is not connected to the Internet so I have to unzip the files in the Content packages into the same directory the Installer has installed its files. I think now this is the wrong way to do it after reading your post.

So which of the files in the Content packages should have its extension renamed and how? My Content package that I downloaded have a zip extension because they are in a zipped file after downloading. Are these the ones that should be renamed? Sorry for all the questions but I'm really trying hard to understand all of these  Wink

Thanks for the reply.

Hey guys. I am a newbie from Malaysia and I don't know next to nothing about computer codes, programming and stuffs except for the fact that my PC's OS is an XP. I got interested in this game because of glowing recommendation from the Home Of The Underdogs (HOTU) site and followed their link here. I subsequently downloaded the installer to this game as well as the content files and the music files (separately) from my housemate's PC (mine's not connected to the net) and transfer them via pendrive to my PC before unzipping and installing. My problem is, when I run the game I get a DOSBOX  flashing on my screen with a whole lot of technical mumbo jumbo I don't know anything about except that each task was successfully loaded. But the most important is the last 2 lines which goes like this:

Warning: Can't open 'starcon.1st'
Kernel fail to load! 

And it just sits there freezing for hours until I turn it off. Fyi, I did not download and install the voiceover file nor did I burn the files I downloaded and install it from there. Are these gonna cause problems?? Please help. Like I say I am not the least bit tech savvy so if there are any stupid mistakes or simple things that I don't understand, I do beg for y'all's forgiveness in advance.

Thank you.
