Download UFO: Enemy Unknown for DOS - The Original X-Com Game


How to Download and Play UFO: Enemy Unknown on DOSBox




UFO: Enemy Unknown, also known as X-COM: UFO Defense in North America, is a turn-based strategy game that was released in 1994 for MS-DOS. It is widely regarded as one of the best and most influential games of its genre, combining tactical combat, base management, research, and diplomacy in a sci-fi setting where you have to defend Earth from an alien invasion.


However, if you want to play this classic game on a modern system, you will need an emulator that can run old DOS games. That's where DOSBox comes in. DOSBox is an open-source program that simulates an x86 computer with DOS, allowing you to run hundreds of games from the golden age of PC gaming.

In this article, we will show you how to download and play UFO: Enemy Unknown on DOSBox, step by step. You will learn how to find a legal copy of the game online, how to extract the game files and prepare them for DOSBox, how to install and configure DOSBox, and how to launch and play the game. Let's get started!


How to Download UFO: Enemy Unknown




The first thing you need to do is to get a copy of UFO: Enemy Unknown. You can buy the game from various online platforms, such as GOG.com, Steam, or Humble Bundle. These versions are already compatible with DOSBox, so you don't need to do anything else. However, if you already own a physical copy of the game or you want to download it for free (which may not be legal in your country), you will need to extract the game files from the CD-ROM or floppy disks and prepare them for DOSBox.


To do this, you will need a program that can extract ISO files, such as WinRAR, 7-Zip, or PowerISO. Once you have installed one of these programs, follow these steps:


  • Insert the CD-ROM or floppy disk of UFO: Enemy Unknown into your computer.



  • Open the program that can extract ISO files and locate the drive where the game is inserted.



  • Select all the files on the drive and extract them to a folder on your hard drive. You can name it anything you want, but we will use "UFO" as an example.



  • Repeat this process for any other disks that contain game files.



  • Once you have extracted all the files, you should have a folder called "UFO" with several subfolders inside it.



How to Install and Configure DOSBox




Now that you have the game files ready, you need to install and configure DOSBox. You can download DOSBox from its official website or from SourceForge. Choose the version that matches your operating system and follow the instructions to install it. Once you have installed DOSBox, you need to create a folder for your DOS games and mount it as a virtual drive in DOSBox. Here's how:


  • Create a folder on your hard drive where you want to store your DOS games. You can name it anything you want, but we will use "DOSGames" as an example.



  • Copy the folder "UFO" that contains the game files into the folder "DOSGames".



  • Open DOSBox and type the following command: mount c c:\DOSGames. This will mount the folder "DOSGames" as the C: drive in DOSBox. You should see a message that says "Drive C is mounted as local directory c:\DOSGames\".



  • Type c: to switch to the C: drive and press Enter.



  • Type dir to see the contents of the C: drive. You should see the folder "UFO" among them.



Now you have mounted the game folder as a virtual drive in DOSBox, but you still need to adjust some settings of DOSBox for optimal performance and compatibility. To do this, you need to edit the DOSBox configuration file, which is called "dosbox.conf". You can find this file in the folder where you installed DOSBox, or you can open it from DOSBox by typing config -writeconf dosbox.conf and then exit. Once you have opened the file, you need to change some values in the following sections:


  • [sdl]: Set fullscreen=true if you want to play in full screen mode, or false if you prefer windowed mode. You can also adjust the windowresolution and output options according to your preference and system capabilities.



  • [cpu]: Set core=auto and cputype=auto to let DOSBox choose the best settings for your system. You can also increase the cycles value to speed up the game, or decrease it to slow it down. The default value is cycles=auto, which adjusts the speed automatically.



  • [mixer]: Set nosound=false to enable sound, or true to disable it. You can also adjust the rate, blocksize, and prebuffer options to improve the sound quality and reduce latency.



  • [midi]: Set mpu401=intelligent to enable MIDI music, which is recommended for UFO: Enemy Unknown. You can also change the mididevice and midiconfig options to use different MIDI devices or software synthesizers.



  • [dos]: Set xms=true, ems=true, and umb=true to enable different types of memory for DOS programs. These are usually required for most games.



  • [autoexec]: This section allows you to execute some commands automatically when DOSBox starts. You can use this section to mount your game folder and launch your game with one click. For example, you can add these lines at the end of the section:



mount c c:\DOSGames c: cd UFO UFO exit


This will mount your game folder as C:, switch to it, enter the UFO subfolder, run the game executable, and exit DOSBox when you quit the game.


Once you have edited and saved the DOSBox configuration file, you are ready to play UFO: Enemy Unknown.

How to Launch and Play UFO: Enemy Unknown




To launch and play UFO: Enemy Unknown, you have two options:


  • You can open DOSBox and type the commands manually, as explained in the previous section. For example, you can type mount c c:\DOSGames, then c:, then cd UFO, then UFO.



  • You can create a shortcut that will execute DOSBox with the commands you added in the [autoexec] section of the configuration file. To do this, right-click on the DOSBox executable file and select "Create shortcut". Then, right-click on the shortcut and select "Properties". In the "Target" field, add -conf dosbox.conf -noconsole -c exit at the end of the line. This will tell DOSBox to use the custom configuration file, hide the console window, and close DOSBox when you exit the game. Click "OK" to save the changes. Now you can double-click on the shortcut to launch the game.



Once you have launched the game, you will see the main menu with several options: New Game, Load Game, Intro, and Quit. If you want to start a new game, select New Game and choose your difficulty level and base location. If you want to load a previous game, select Load Game and choose your save file. If you want to watch the intro cinematic, select Intro. If you want to quit the game, select Quit.


The game is divided into two main modes: Geoscape and Battlescape. In Geoscape, you manage your global operations, such as building and upgrading your bases, researching new technologies, manufacturing new equipment, hiring and training your soldiers, intercepting and shooting down UFOs, and sending your troops to investigate crash sites or terror missions. In Battlescape, you control your squad of soldiers in turn-based tactical combat against the aliens, using various weapons, items, and abilities.


The game is challenging and complex, but also rewarding and fun. You will have to make strategic decisions, balance your
