Very Good

For those who try to run the game on newer machines:
the game uses XMS memory which is almost not used today by operating systems. I suggest using DOSBOX, but read the instructions there as you might need to tweak the sound options. Generally it works (at least on my Win XP).

There should be install.exe file, it cannot run without it.
And check if this one file is not an zip archive or disk image

I just wanted to say that i think it is great people are talking about dragon lore. I am 11 and own the original version which wa created in "Copyright(c) 1994 Mindscape Internatational Ltd. Copyright (c) 1994 Cyro interactive Entertainment." And it is a fantastic game. You are Judged in it by the Dragon Knights and are able to use mana in the spell book. I think it is great but i have problems with the game. There are no sounds!! please get back to me on any info you have in order to fix this problem.

This really isn't a comment, but more a begging for help letter.
I have been playing 'Dragon Lore : The Legend Begins', and I am having trouble.
I have been at this game forever as I have been playing it on and off. I am the end of the game now, but am having problems.
There is a part where you have to throw Diakanov's blood into the pentacle and the magician gives you a chalice that you must take out an amulet (power stone) from.
This might sound like a really stupid question, but how do you take the amulet out?
The thing is, is that after you get the chalice, the magician tells you to look inside.
But he keeps on talking and there is no way you can interrupt him to look into the chalice.
If you do not know the answer, could you please pass it on to someone who does. Thanks.
Apart from that, I think you've got a great site, and I will use it again.
