Hi,

I got this game about two weeks ago and have had problems running it on Windows 10. The issue I am seeing is that the initial 'Bullfrog' splash screen sticks for infinity after DOS Box loads. Anyone else have this? I tried searching but did not see any other similar issues. Any input would be appreciated. Thank you.
Hitting ESC worked for me.
might be old but for me hitting space/enter skips it along

You're supposed to press the ENTER key at the first splash screen. That will take you to the language selection screen. If you press ESC, instead, it'll just exit, which took me a while to realize, since I'm used to pressing ESC in games to skip intros and splash screens.

If ENTER doesn't work, if you have any other issues or if you want to launch Syndicate directly (instead of having to go through the frontend first), simply open up dosboxSyndicate_single.conf and replace its contents with the following:

[ipx]
ipx=false

[autoexec]
@echo off
mount c ".."
c:
cd syndicat
cls
main.exe
exit

If/when you want to change it to run the American Revolt expansion pack directly, simply change "cd syndicat" to "cd datadisk".

Sounds stupid, but after having the same problem and trying all solution recommendations found here in the forum (including changing graphic setting, running as an administrator, reinstalling the game, changing config files, ...), nothing worked for me. But by chance a found a very simple solution.

First deactivate NumLock, than press Return. For me that worked fine and I got to the next screen (language selection).
