Same here, was having a great time until this error 27 started showing up. I can load the game but then I get the error a few turns later.
I used to play off an old CD-ROM copy I had, via Dosbox, and I never had this ever, not even once.
I'm going to try and use that .exe and see if I can play error-free. What a shame, I had hoped GOG would save me the trouble of remembering to set everything up via Dosbox.
Edit: I found that .exe and copied it over the one in the GOG directory, but it didn't make any difference (still error 27, then error 26). Maybe it's a problem with the newer version of Dobox, because again, I've beaten this game many times over the years, and have never seen this error.
