1) Download and extract this DOSBox build

2) Delete glide2x.dll from DOSBox folder

3) Download and install nGlide

4) Edit dosbox.conf (set memsize=63 and fullscreen=true and add this to [autoexec] section):
mount c c:\mygames
mount d f:\ -t cdrom -noioctl
If you don't know what these two lines mean, here's official DOSBox tutorial.

5) Launch dosbox.exe. Install (INSTALL.BAT) and play installed game (DREAMSFX.exe located in C:\CRYO\DREAMS\) under DOSBox. You can configure your soundcard with SETSOUND.EXE, located in C:\CRYO\DREAMS\DATA\SOUND\.

Thankss Zeus, great instructions. I installed and it works fine until I dive into a pool or some water. Perhaps I should try changing the configuration, but I don´t know what optinos should I touch.

..and what happened? I tested star pool on hamam island (first pool in the game) and it worked fine, without changing anything. If you have other pool examples post your savegames and describe what's exactly wrong.

Sorry I didn´t explain much, well when I enter the first pool (the noe at Hamam) it kind of freezes but I can still rotate the view and I only get to see one part of the pool (I attached a screenshot). And then right after the columns, the screen just goes blank. I attached the savegames and a screenshot. Thanksss Zeuss

...a windowed mode - you're not using nGlide. Delete glide2x.dll from dosbox folder, because you're now using default ykhwong's DOSBox glide wrapper.

ps. added point 2 to instructions.

Ensure you have the game files for "Dreams to Reality." If you don't have them, you may need to acquire them from a legitimate source or your own game CDs.
