Hey LemmieFanDOS, welcome to the forums! Which game is this? Is it ONML? That one you can just click through and it'll still allow you to play.

It's the first one, but I can only get it to work on CGA, which looks bad, and kinda hurts my eyes.

I'm trying to play it via DOSBox v0.74.

Is that the one where the colors are all messed up on the level preview screen? I fixed that issue by configuring something in the DosBox config file.

Apparently, I can't get to the options menu.

C drive => Program Files (x86) => DosBox => DosBox Options.bat. Should open in Notepad when you double-click it, but if not, you can right-click and open with notepad.

I checked my file, and I believe I changed the machine line to emulate svga_s3, which I think fixed the weird color issue. Try that out and see.

Now I can't seem to play it, I typed in c:/cgalemmie, and it exited the game saying I needed to insert a disk. I said in the machine line: "svga_s3, cga, hercules"
and now it refuses to let me play.

I think it can only accept one value for any of the lines in the config file. Have you tried removing either svga or hercules and leaving the other value in that line?
