Hey guys, I got the Might and Magic pack off of GoG and I was playing MM1 and then I checked out MM2. There is an option to transfer your characters from MM1 to MM2 but I can't figure out how with the whole dosbox thing. Anyone of you guys figured out a way to tranfer your characters? Id really appreaciate the help, thanks!
I think it's like this:
Choose S to Start Game
Choose T to Transfer Characters
Then you have to type the path to the ROSTER.DTA file from MM1
If you installed to default location it should be:
C:\Program Files\Gog.com\Might & Magic VI Limited Edition\ Might & Magic 1 - Book 1\ROSTER.DTA
If you're on a 64 bit system replace 'Program Files' with 'Program Files (x86)'
Or you could just try to copy (COPY, NOT CUT) the ROSTER.DTA file to some other place and use that directory instead.
If you're getting a 'file not found' error even if you're inserting the correct path, try this:
Go to the MM2 folder, double click MM2.EXE to fire up the game (instead of using the game's shortcut), transfer the characters as i indicated above, use V to view your imported characters (to make sure they're there) and then quit the game.
After that launch the game using the gog shortcut and hopefully everything will be working as intended.
I just did it and it seems to have worked.
